Under Secretary of Commerce for Industry and Security In Israel for High Level Meetings
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) announced on Friday that Mario Mancuso, Under Secretary of Commerce for Industry and Security, will be in Israel this week to participate in meetings with senior Israeli government officials and business leaders to discuss dual-use export control cooperation, high-technology trade and investment issues.
During his trip to Israel, Under Secretary Mancuso will meet with officials from Israel's Ministries of Industry, Trade and Labor, Defense and Foreign Affairs. He will also meet with Israeli and U.S. business leaders to discuss ways to promote secure high technology trade and investment.
Israel recently passed a new export control law that is intended to strengthen Israel's existing export control regime.
The trip to Israel promises to be the first of Undersecretary Mancuso's visits to key countries in order to elevate the U.S. level of engagement on dual-use export controls and high-technology trade and investment.
