The Government of Israel Economic Mission to the West Coast is part of the Foreign Trade Administration at the Israeli Ministry of Economy. Our goal is to promote trade and investment between Israel and twelve states that make up the West Coast: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming.
We promote collaboration between Israeli and U.S. companies in a variety of sectors, including agriculture, automotive, consumer goods, education, 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 West 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.
