RE:      Branstad confirmed as Ambassador to China
DA:     Monday, May 22, 2017

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey issued the following statement following the confirmation of Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad as U.S. Ambassador to China:

“It is great news for Iowa and for the nation that Governor Branstad is now confirmed and will soon be in place as Ambassador to China.  Governor Branstad is uniquely qualified to serve in this critically important position and will vigorously support our nation’s interests. Through his hard work promoting Iowa products around the world, the Governor has built strong relationships with Chinese President Xi and numerous leaders and officials across the country that will serve our nation well.  I want to thank Gov. Branstad for his service to our great state as Governor and I wish him all the best and look forward to continuing to work with him in this new and important role.”
