Congressman Huelskamp gave the following statement on his signing of these Letters of Intent:

“As a Kansas farmer, I was honored to sign agreements with the nation of Taiwan to expand import of our Kansas agricultural production. I am thankful that Taiwan has been such a loyal customer for my fellow Kansas farmers and me. With these letters of intent, I am confident that Kansas farmers, indeed the entire state, will continue to win with additional exports around the world.”
