About Us


Utah Israel Economic Council

At UIEC, we are a non-profit trade organization providing a platform in which companies, industry professionals, and individuals convene to share ideas, network, or engage in bilateral trade or investment. The main fields of activity include activities for the promotion of trade and export, initiating and maintaining trade agreements for the improvement of Israel’s trade conditions, attracting and encouraging foreign investments and creating strategic cooperation with foreign companies. We encourage foreign investment in Utah companies, and identify Israeli entities and companies that are open to cultivating a U.S. presence. Additionally, we assist the Israeli business community by providing business information and contacts through Utah’s Governors Office of Economic Development, which has an extensive database of business resources in Utah from a variety of economic sectors.


We are helping our community spread the word about how a strong U.S.-Israel relationship benefits both nations. We are hosting Israeli speakers and Utah speakers with a range of expertise. In addition, we are promoting a lasting peace between Israel and U.S.
