Enterprise Florida, Inc. will lead an export sales mission to Israel, from December 2-8. Participating Florida companies will have pre-scheduled one-on-one appointments with qualified Israeli businesses to develop or expand direct export sales to Israel.
The U.S. is Israel’s single largest trading partner. Since signing the Free Trade Agreement in 1985, U.S.-Israel trade has grown eight-fold, and nearly all trade tariffs between the U.S. and Israel have been eliminated since 1995. Florida origin exports in 2016 to Israel were more than $244 million. The Israeli market holds vast opportunities for Florida companies interested in increasing their international footprint.
Enterprise Florida, Inc. will offer a limited number of Gold Key Matchmaking appointments. The cost of this service is projected to be $1,500. Small and midsized Florida manufacturers, eligible high tech companies, professional service providers, and companies new to market may qualify for a Gold Key Grant. The grant covers 100 percent of the cost of the Gold Key Matchmaking appointments for the first company representative. A separate application process is required for this grant. Participants will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis. Costs for airfare, lodging, incidentals, and meals are the responsibility of the participant.
