Mayor Julian Castro of San Antonio, Texas, signed a memorandum of intent on Tuesday with Deputy Mayor of Jerusalem Naomi Tzur, alongside representatives of healthcare development corporations BioMed SA and BioJerusalem.

Castro, who arrived in Israel on Sunday, is leading a five-day mission and has brought with him a delegation of city, business and religious leaders from San Antonio, for a series of meetings with politicians, industrial figures and other officials.

“Israel is setting a very high standard, particularly in sectors which match up well with San Antonio’s strengths,” Castro told The Jerusalem Post. “We’ve signed a broad agreement today to promote collaboration in business development as well as research cooperation.”

Castro also spoke about what he described as the “warm relationship” between the Hispanic community in his city, which comprises more than 60 percent of the population, and the Jewish residents, who number approximately 9,200.
