Democratic State Lawmaker, Saba, has organized a trade delegation;
â€œThere is a lack of access for South Dakota agricultural products and services in international marketsâ€ observed SD State Representative Michael Saba (Dist. 9) after recently returning from a trip abroad.Â Saba decided to do something about it.
This Sunday, November 3, a delegation of Egyptian officials will be in South Dakota for four days attempting to buy 10,000 metric tons of soybeans and other products.
â€œThis trip shows South Dakota can compete in the world markets but we need a better marketing infrastructure to make this an everyday occurrenceâ€ Saba added.
Egyptian Ambassador Hamdi Saleh and his distinguished delegation will be touring Eastern South Dakota including the cities of Sioux Falls on Monday, Brookings on Tuesday with Watertown and Aberdeen on Wednesday.
â€œThe delegation is visiting South Dakota in an attempt to open our state’s high tech and agriculture industries to the marketplaces of Egypt and we are inviting the people of our state including the media to join us in welcoming our distinguished guestsâ€ said Saba.
