The goal is to bolster bilateral trade and investment opportunities and facilitate collaboration among regulatory bodies, multinational corporations, small-and-midsized enterprises (SMEs), industry associations, colleges and universities, think tanks and nonprofit organizations. The forums on Israel and the American South will focus on collaboration in industry sectors such as technology, energy, advanced manufacturing, health care and logistics – and will address challenges in trade and investment policy as well as technological innovation and disruption.
