The international market is booming and for American companies, exporting makes more sense now than ever before. Is your company looking to diversify and increase your global market share? The Iowa Economic Development Authority’s (IEDA) International Trade Office will lead a trade and investment mission to Israel September 6 - 13, 2017. Participating Iowa companies will have one-on-one pre-qualified appointments whether they are seeking to develop or expand direct export sales, locate distributors or agents, conduct market research or have other goals.
The U.S. is Israel's largest single-country trade partner. Since signing a Free Trade Agreement in 1985, Israel–U.S. trade has grown more than nine-fold. Since 1995 nearly all trade tariffs between the U.S. and Israel have been eliminated. Israel has a technologically advanced free market economy. In 2016, Iowa exports to Israel exceeded US$30.6 million, a 14.5% increase over 2015. Click here to learn more about the trade mission details and how to participate.
