In an effort to increase sales of technology and communications products to UN peacekeeping organizations around the world, the Israel Export Institute, in conjunction with the Foreign Ministry, will host a conference today at which the UN's director of Information Technology in the Office of Central Support Services and the chief of Communications and Information Technology in the Department of Peacekeeping Operations will present to Israeli exporters and businessmen what they see as the immediate and future needs of the UN's technology department. The UN representatives will also hold individual meetings with the more than 50 Israeli technology exporters expected to attend the conference. "Blue and white" products currently account for less than one percent of the UN's $4 billion purchasing budget.
