SWOT analysis on U.S. corn export markets


By Matt Perlinger, NCB Intern

Matt Perlinger, USGC-PanamaI will be finishing out the remainder of my internship in the Nebraska Corn Board’s headquarters in Lincoln. The transition has been a great learning experience for me.

I have been working for the last few weeks on developing a report about the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) for the export markets of U.S. corn and related products. It has been extremely interesting researching the many issues related to agricultural exports and future opportunities such as the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). It has also been interesting to learn about the threats to the future of agricultural exports, and the many ripple effects that seemingly unrelated events can have in a global market.

I look forward to presenting the report to the Nebraska Corn Board at the August meeting and advocating for the future of Nebraska’s agricultural exports by bringing important issues to light.
