Maryland Gov. Hogan calls Israel trade mission a success

The governor of the US state of Maryland just wrapped up a trip which saw dozens of business, academic, and Jewish leaders from the state come to Israel to sign joint agreements; Governor Hogan: 'there is a real synergy between this nation and our state.'

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan says his delegation has made several successful business transactions with Israeli companies during a weeklong trade mission.

 

 

Hogan said in an interview with The Associated Press on Friday that "there is a real synergy between this nation and our state."

 

Business, academic and Jewish leaders from Maryland accompanied the governor and administration officials.

About 25 private-sector representatives made the trip. Meetings focused on cybersecurity, biotech and medical industries. Hogan says Cyberbit announced a partnership for a cybersecurity training center in Baltimore that will employ about 100 people.

 

Hogan says Israel is one of Maryland's biggest trading partners, with $145 million in exports last year. He says there has been "a great relationship for many years and it's going to get even stronger."
