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 2017 was 3.4% and unemployment was 3.7%.

 

Major Industries and Opportunities:

• Aerospace/Defense/Homeland Security

• Communications, Telecom equipment

• Medical Devices

The trade mission fee is $1,000.

Each participant will receive a customized schedule of B2B meetings with prospective customers and/or business partners and will benefit from group networking events, all group ground transportation, including airport transfers in Israel and some select sightseeing activities (time permitting).

 

The STEP and EMAS Programs:

One way Global NY helps business export products and services is by connecting them to the State Trade Expansion Program (STEP), offering funding by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) through Empire State Development (ESD).

For eligible companies, the STEP grant can reimburse a significant portion of your travel and lodging expenses, plus the participation fee. If you are interested in participating in this trade mission please email a completed STEP Application and EMAS Application to globalny@esd.ny.gov.
