The South Carolina-Israel Collaboration is an effort to create greater business relationships between South Carolina and Israel. Please join the Collaboration and MITA, the Midlands International Trade Association for “The South Carolina-Israel Experience: How the Midlands Can Benefit” from noon-2 p.m. on Thursday, June 7, at the Columbia Marriott Hotel. Cost is $25 per person.
The Greater Columbia Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring this event along with USC/Innovista, the Central South Carolina Economic Development Alliance and Parker Poe Law Firm. Featured speakers will include Jonathan Zucker, president of the Inter/Tech Group in Charleston and chairman of the collaboration; Tom Vogt, associate vice president for research at USC; Diane Weiner, director of business development for the Israeli company Healarium; and Tom Glaser, president of the American-Israel Chamber of Commerce.
The South Carolina-Israel Collaboration, formed in 2011, has already succeeded in raising our state’s profile in Israel and generating business and research relationships that are beneficial to both sides. A 26-person South Carolina delegation to Israel last November included a significant group from the Midlands, and another such economic development trip is being planned for 2012.
