March MDA trip aims to expand state's Israel business ties

he Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) will lead a delegation of state business leaders on a business development mission to Tel Aviv, Haifa and Jerusalem, Israel from March 17-22. The trip is designed to connect Mississippi businesses looking to expand trade and create business relationships with opportunities in Israeli markets.

During the business development mission, delegates will meet one-on-one with qualified agents and distributors regarding their products and services.

“U.S. exports to Israel have grown tremendously in recent years, and demand in the Israeli marketplace for products and services in the renewable energy, energy efficiency, aerospace and defense industries, to name just a few, presents great opportunities for Mississippi companies looking to expand their businesses through trade,” said Jim Barksdale, MDA interim executive director. “Furthermore, the U.S.-Israeli Free Trade Agreement allows U.S. companies to export their products to Israel duty-free.”
