A delegation of Atlanta businesses is scheduled to arrive in Israel over the weekend to foster relations between US and Israeli biomedical companies.
The 5-day mission is being organized by the American-Israel Chamber of Commerce (AICC), which has been involved in over $150m. in contracts over the past year, and the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce. Its aim is to promote Atlanta as a base for clinical trials of biomedical products.
The delegation will visit several technology centers in the North and meet with Israeli governmental and business leaders, including investors in the technology and life science industries. They also will participate in next week's Prime Minister's Economic Conference and a conference on Alternative and Renewable Energy.
