Foreign markets represent ray of hope Moran says it's logical to look at countries nearby, such as Cuba and IVIexico By SARAH KESSINGER Harris News Service TOPEKA — On Monday, U.S. Rep. Jerry Moran will step onto a tarmac in the tropics seeking markets for Kansas farm products. And next month, Kansans selling soybeans, pinto beans and other goods will pursue business pacts south of the border. For Sunflower State farmers, foreign markets represent a ray of hope for a weak grain economy Two upcoming trips by state officials and business executives aim to explore farm markets in Latin America. Moran, Hays, will spend a few days in Cuba learning how viable a buyer it might be for U.S. grain and meats. In a separate effort, the Kansas Department of Commerce and Housing has slated a May 20 trip for state businesses to visit the Mexican cities of Monterrey and Guadalajara. Officials say Latin America will strengthen its buying power as it stabilizes economically and politically. Kansas is not so far from some of that potential, they add. "We're right in the heart of the free- trade corridor that runs down into Mexico to Monterrey and up to Canada," said Jamie CoUop, commerce department trade representative. Foreign trade doesn't solve all of agriculture's woes, Moran said, but it's logical to look at what's nearby Cuba lies 90 miles from the Florida coast. "The Caribbean has traditionally been ignored where we focused on Europe or China," he said. "We should be paying more attention to those in our own backyard." Matchmaking In Mexico The state has hired a Mexico City consultant to seek potential trade partners. So far, six Kansas businesses, some of them ag-related, expect to join the mission in May "We're opening it up to any company interested in looking for business in Mexico," said Jamie CoUop, commerce department trade representative. "We'll be visiting two of the three largest mar­ kets in the country" The group, accompanied by Lt. Gov Gary Sherrer, will hear from the U.S. consulate and private business on etiquette of buying and selling. Then they'll sit down and talk one-on-one with company executives. Latin American business culture is based on personal relationships. "They want to know you before they buy from you," CoUop said. Efforts appear to be paying off. In 2000, Kansans exported $273 million in manufactured food goods to Mexico, an increase of 122 percent from 1999. Kansas crop exports to the country totaled $180 million, up 15 percent. Mexico is now Kansas' third largest trade partner, after Japan and Canada, since passage of the 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement. Tariffs and shipping have eased among Mexico, the United States and Canada. "We're really excited that our ag companies have come to the table and have an interest in exporting," said Connie Fischer, commerce department agricultural products marketing director. "This says a lot for our producers, that they are becoming more innovative." The border's becoming more invisible, said Gary McKinney, director of international marketing for the U.S. Grains Council in Washington, D.C. "Our early impression is the new president of Mexico is trying to enhance trade relations so it goes across more smoothly. It's a much improved picture all the way around," he said. "Soon you'll be able to see U.S. trucks go clear to Mexico City and Mexican trucks going all the way to Minneapolis." But some tariffs remain, which makes it tough on exporters such as 21st Century Bean Processors in Sharon Springs. The business, a cooperative of 75 pinto bean growers in Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado, want to cultivate Mexican markets, said Ron Meyers, marketing manager To further that goal, Meyers plans to join the Kansas mission next month. "We're hoping to possibly identify a trade liaison in Mexico, someone that will work with us on an ongoing basis to try to identify new trade leads and conduct creditworthiness checks on those leads and assist us with any collection problems we might have," Meyers said. Kansans: Bush plan falls short Some say it isn't enougln for special education funding By CAROL CRUPPER Harris News Service TOPEKA — Kansans aren't turning cartwheels over President Bush's plan to add an extra $27 million in school funding for the Sunflower State. "We were expecting a little more," said Ken Gentry, federal liaison for the Kansas Department of Education. He said the plan fails to keep the federal promise of adequate special education funding while requiring an array of new tests. "We're not opposed to accountability, but there're ways to get it without testing every kid every year," Gentry said. Bush's budget would bring federal spending for K-12, vocational rehabilitation and post- secondary education in Kansas to $370.2 million, a 7.9 percent hike. It's one of the smallest increases in federal funds in the past few years. Gentry said. This year's budget reflected a 15.8 percent boost. The Kansas Board of Education has sent a letter to Bush applauding his effort to make education a priority and his focus on success for all children. But the board said it was less than thrilled at his proposed funding levels for special education and new testing requirements. "We consider it inappropriate for the federal government to create new programs and mandates around education when it has failed to fully fund the mandates already in place," the letter said. Copies were mailed to the state's congressional delegation. Special education woes Special education is the state's biggest gripe. U.S. Rep. Jerry Moran said Bush's proposed increase was a step in the right direction but not a big enough step. ' When the federal government mandated the program in 1975, it promised to pay 40 percent of the funding. Today it contributes 14 percent of Kansas' $478 million special-education bill. Officials figure the proposed plan would pay 16 percent of next year's $515 million cost. Moran said if the federal government would pay its share for special education, it would free local funds to hire and promote teachers, maintain buildings and equip classrooms. He said it also would reduce the pressure to increase local property taxes.
