The PBS International team had the pleasure of hosting Nebraska Grain Sorghum Board and York County Nebraska Development Corporation on a recent visit to the City of York, England, prior to an official trade mission with the Governor of Nebraska in London.

“On both sides of the pond, people of York have a great love of community, agriculture and using technology to preserve our heritage well into the future. Our aligned cultural values and goals make for an ideal sister city relationship and one we hope will flourish in the near future,” said Hurley. “While a true sister city partnership could take some time, this is the first step in establishing the collaborations and partnerships which could lead to a formalized sister city program. The next step is bringing businesses, schools and other entities together to identify potential collaborations and partnerships.”
