Taiwanese officials are looking to import more Illinois corn and soybeans over the next two years.  They signed letters of intent yesterday, agreeing to buy up to 59-million bushels of corn.  That could pump nearly 400-million dollars into the pockets of Illinois corn producers.  Taiwan will also buy up to 14-million bushels of soybeans from the state.  That equates to an additional 182-million dollars for Illinois.  This year Taiwan is the sixth-largest export market for U.S. agricultural products and the fifth-largest market for U.S. corn and soybeans.
