Global NY is recruiting up to 10 NYS companies to participate in a December trade mission to Israel. Join us to gain access to this key global market.
Israel, a major international hub of innovation and technology is a natural market for US goods and is New York’s 5th largest export market. Trade between the US and Israel has increased eight-fold since the signing of the Free Trade Agreement in 1985 and has led to the elimination of virtually all trade tariffs. GDP growth in 2016 was 4%; unemployment, 4.3%.

The current schedule is for meetings and activities in Tel Aviv, Haifa and Jerusalem, with optional weekend sightseeing at the conclusion of the formal mission.
