U.S. Trade Mission Briefed on Israel by Department of Commerce

Download PDF for this date

Israel’s economic growth was described today as a “remarkable development” in a warm speech of praise by Under Secretary of Commerce Edward Gudeman.

He made his remarks at a luncheon honoring the five-member U.S. trade mission which will leave for a three-week visit to Israel early next month. Mission members are attending a week-long briefing session this week prior to their departure.

Israel Ambassador Avraham Harman also briefly addressed the group outlining some of Israel’s industrial needs and hopes. A major purpose of the trade mission–the first of its kind–is to help stimulate a greater two-way flow of business between the U. S. and Israel.
