About The Israel Economic Mission to the East Coast
The Israel Economic Mission to the East Coast, based 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.
The Mission promotes collaboration between Israeli and U.S. companies in a variety of sectors, including cyber, investment, fintech, digital health, life sciences, consumer goods, wine, retail tech, sports tech, smart cities, clean energy, homeland security, software and IT, water technology.
The New York office is covering three main areas:
- The Economic Mission initiates and maintains trade agreements and facilitates strategic cooperation with foreign companies, organizations and government agencies;
- We offer opportunities from Israel to local business communities, in addition to general 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.
