Bon Voyage to Governor Larry Hogan who is leaving on a Trade Mission to Israel today! The goal of the mission is to expand the Maryland’s business ties with Israel, the renowned high tech country known as “The StartUp Nation.” Since the MIDC was founded almost 25 years ago every Governor has traveled to Israel to promote Maryland and encourage business development. We wish Governor Hogan and the delegation a successful trip!
In addition to the Governor, the Maryland delegation includes Maryland’s Secretaries of Commerce, Transportation, State and Aging as Maryland business people, Jewish Community leaders and university representatives.
Maryland and Israel share similar strengths in life sciences, information technologies, defense, cyber security and other advanced industries. The mission will provide an opportunity to meet potential new customers and partners, as well as for the state to strengthen bi-lateral trade, investment and R&D ties.
Israel presents an attractive business opportunity for the State of Maryland. Its high tech entrepreneurs are at the forefront of cutting edge industries including big data analytics, cyber security, mobile apps, digital health, social media, alternative energy, water technologies, driverless cars, and many other exciting new fields.
