NY Multi-Sector Trade Mission to Israel

Date: 24.02.2018 |

THE JBNF Dec 7 event has been cancelled because of the political situation following the announcement of President Trump of the decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. As a consequence, the US State Department published a travel directive advising US citizens not to travel to Jerusalem https://jru.usconsulate.gov/security-message-u-s-citizens-december-6-2017/ . As a consequence, the State of NY decided to suspend Wednesday night the remainder of the Global NY’s Multi -Sector Trade Mission to Israel which would have taken place in Jerusalem. 

If there is a very important business that you would have like to carry out with a member or members of the mission, contact Gerry Stoch, NY state’s economic attache to Israel, who is with the mission in Jerusalem till they leave to return to the USA, to see if a private meeting can be arranged.Gerry Stoch can be reached at tel: 054-4571519 

The JBNF team would like to apologize for the inconvinience that this has caused you and would like to remind you that our next meeting will take place Dec 11 about what “Israeli digital government can do for 
business.” https://www.meetup.com/JerusalemBNF/events/244219862/
