MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Scott Walker and the head of his jobs creation agency are heading to Israel for a trade mission.
Walker and Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation CEO Mark Hogan are scheduled to leave Wisconsin on Friday. They’ll lead a 15-member delegation to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
The goal is to promote Wisconsin as a location for Israeli water technology businesses entering the U.S. market. Walker will meet with a number of Israeli government leaders, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, members of Netanyahu’s cabinet, U.S. Ambassador David Friedman and business leaders.
The trip is scheduled to last a week.
