Congressman Tim Huelskamp, (R-Kan.), has announced that Vietnam’s Ambassador to the United States will join him for a tour of the Brylin Farm, a swine finishing facility near Washington, Kan. on Aug. 24. State Representative Sharon Schwartz, whose family has been in pork production for more than 50 years, will also be on hand for the tour.
A lunch after the tour will be hosted at First National Bank of Washington, Kan. located at 101 C. Street in Washington.
"It is a tremendous privilege to host a foreign dignitary here in the First District of Kansas," Huelskamp said. "I look forward to giving His Excellency Nguyen Quoc Cuong a tour of America's heartland, and showing him all that Kansas has to offer. It is my hope that we will discuss the relationship the United States and Vietnam have when it comes to trade and how our two nations can strengthen our economic partnership."
