As part of a Florida trade mission to Israel, Florida Governor Rick Scott joined the visit to BGU as well, remarking that the members of the mission care about Israel.

AABGU Greater Florida Regional Director Elise Dolgow was thrilled with the new collaboration and noted that a similar memorandum between the University of Miami (UM) and BGU was signed back in May. During this trip, that collaboration was further solidified with a research agreement signed between BGU’s Faculty of Health Sciences and UM’s medical school.

Governor Scott seeks to strengthen the relationship between Israeli and Florida institutions and business, providing Israeli businesses with a great way to enter the Latin American market.
