Over the years, we have been fortunate in our very positive relationships with the Israeli government agencies whose work dovetails with ours. The Israel Economic Office to the U.S. Southern Region has been a key partner in our efforts with Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and now Tennessee (the Israel Economic Mission in New York is responsible for North Carolina and South Carolina). Together, we have developed initiatives in Automotive, Logistics, Telecommunications, New Media, Software, and Life Sciences that brought together Israeli companies with Southeast companies that are potential strategic partners, investors, and customers. Meaningful business has resulted.
We honored this important relationship with the presentation of the Community Partner Award at last June’s Eagle Star Awards Gala. Accepting the award was Roee Madai who had served as the Consul for Economic Affairs at their Houston office for the past three years. Roee has returned to Israel, and the Israel Economic Office is now headed Michal Niddam, an experienced executive from the Ministry of Industry, Trade & Labor. With the Consulate General of Israel, we will welcome Michal to Atlanta with a special reception on October 23rd hosted by McKenna Long & Aldridge. If you are in Atlanta next week, we hope you will join us for this important occasion!
