One state lawmaker says he’s bringing a trade delegation from Egypt to South Dakota in October.
Democratic Representative Michael Saba says the state must aggressively look for other markets.
“The state should be more involved in this,” Saba says. “As a state representative of the people, I’m taking it upon myself to represent those people in a direct sense and not wait for the state to put these trade delegations together. We haven’t had trade delegations for years, now, from South Dakota. Part of it is we’re sitting here waiting for business to come to us.”
