Governor Herbert’s Trade Mission to Israel & Jordan

October 20, 2017 - October 27, 2017

This October Governor Herbert will be leading his second trade mission to Israel and his first to Jordan.  The World Trade Center Utah and The Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) are working together alongside the UIEC to successfully establish meetings in a variety of industries to help foster an everlasting international relationship.  Specifically, the UIEC will be assisting with business-to-business meetings with an emphasis on the defense industry as well as alternative energy, EduTech, MedTech, and FinTech.

Governor Herbert last hosted a trade mission to Israel in 2013 and met with Prime Minster of Israel and the Prime minster of the Palestinian National Authority, among others.  While the Governor’s first trade mission was focused more on establishing ties between the two states, the Governor’s upcoming trip will be more economically focused. Governor Herbert said in 2013, “There are indeed meaningful possibilities for enhanced economic cooperation and vitality between the Beehive State and Israel.”

This is a rare opportunity to network alongside professionals across the Middle East, and will be very beneficial to whoever can attend. Exact company and business-to-business meetings are in the process of being determined, with the help of the UIEC and Gold Key Matching Services by the U.S. Commercial Service.
