The Grand Forks City Council officially cancels the Fufeng project

GRAND FORKS, ND (KFYR) – The Grand Forks City Council voted unanimously Monday to cancel a proposed Chinese-owned corn processing plant project due to national security concerns.

The decision comes less than a week after Sen. John Hoven sent the Air Force a letter expressing concern over the $700 million project, but questions remain about what to do with the annexed land.

Many have said they don’t want a Chinese entity operating near them or near a US Air Force base.

Sen. Kevin Cramer, R- North Dakota.

“Instead of working with Fufen, the city, we should all be working together, as we have recommended, to find an American company for their Ag Park,” said Sen. John Hoven, R-Dakota.
