The Oregon Jewish Review reports that a new business partnership has been created to bring the businesses communities of Israel and Oregon together. The group is called the Oregon-Israel Business Alliance and they just had one of the first meetings at the University of Oregon White Stag Building. There were 60 business and community leaders who attended.
Former Governor Ted Kulongoski was present and had previously returned from a nine day trade mission in Israel last fall. A memorandum of cooperation was signed with Israel’s Ministry of Industry. At the event Kulongoski said, “What you’re doing is so important.” Kulongoski went on to talk about natural resources issues like future gas prices and Israel’s innovative use of water resources.
OIBA President and co-founder Steve “Rosy” Rosenberg said that he wished to establish in Israel, ““some of the things that are going on over here, so that Oregonians can go over there and pitch their things, so people there become aware of what Oregon is.”
