Missouri Governor Jay Nixon arrived in Israel Monday on a week-long trade mission, leading a delegation of state government leaders focused on strengthening partnerships, increasing exports and recruiting new hi-tech foreign investment to the Show Me State.
In 2014, Nixon signed legislation establishing a Missouri trade office in Israel, and this week’s trade mission is intended to further boost ties.
“Over the past few years, Missouri has become a globally- recognized hub of hi-tech jobs and entrepreneurship, and recently led the nation in new business creation,” Nixon said. “This trade mission is an opportunity to strengthen Missouri’s ties with a vital US ally, encourage even more hi-tech investment in our state, and bolster Missouri’s reputation as a leader in technology and innovation worldwide.”
