The Government of Israel Economic Mission in New York is part of the Foreign Trade Administration at the Israeli Ministry of Economy. Our goal is to promote trade and investment between Israel and the United States, particularly the markets on the East Coast (including Philadelphia, Boston, the Carolinas, and NYC).
We promote collaboration between Israeli and U.S. companies in a variety of sectors, including aerospace, automotive, consumer goods, clean energy, food, homeland security, IT, water technology, and wine. We offer opportunities from Israel to local business communities, in addition to general information information about the economy, specific sectors, or specific companies.
We encourage foreign investment in Israeli companies, and identify Israeli entities and companies that are open to cultivating a U.S. presence, developing R&D or other strategic cooperation. Additionally, we assist the Israeli business community by providing business information and contacts through an extensive database of businesses on the East Coast from a variety of economic sectors.
The Economic Mission also initiates and maintains trade agreements and facilitates strategic cooperation with foreign companies, organizations and government agencies.
