We were proud to launch the second Israel-USA Business Summit, a partnership between the Israel-America Chamber of Commerce, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, The Federation of Israeli Chambers of Commerce with support from the U.S. Commercial Service and SelectUSA.
The strong friendship between Israel and the United States is fundamental for Israel and manifested in many areas from defense to politics and ever-more-so through the extensive economic, trade and investment relations, which are strategic for the development of the Israeli economy.
The United States is Israel's largest trading partner and makes for 25% of Israel's foreign trade. The free trade agreement provides a solid foundation for rapid and sustained growth in trade between the two countries, which has doubled every few years, and in 2018, reached over $ 35 billion.
The close cooperation between the two nations is further reflected in the integration of innovative Israeli technologies in the American industry, the investment of hundreds of American companies in Israel and similarly that of hundreds of Israeli firms' investments in the USA.
Israel has a vital interest in strengthening these relations further by initiating and improving agreements, encouraging investments and creating strategic cooperation between companies, organizations and governmental bodies in both countries.
The Summit will bring together over 600 senior executives and decision-makers how came to learn, catch-up on the latest development, meet fellow senior Israeli and American business leaders and senior government officials involved in strengthening cooperation and shaping trade relations in this arena.
