Nineteen companies and organizations joined Gov. Gary Herbert recently on a trade mission to Amman, Jordan, and Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, Israel.
Jordan and Israel are considered gateway countries for businesses interested in expanding into Middle Eastern markets.
“Both Jordan and Israel have strong science and technology sectors that align well with the innovative technologies coming out of Utah,” said Derek B. Miller, president and chief executive officer of World Trade Center Utah (WTC Utah). “The focus of the trade mission to Amman, Jordan, and the trade mission to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, Israel, is to help businesses make meaningful connections that will lead to new customers and opportunities for collaboration in the Middle East.”
