Inaugural U.S.-Israel High Technology Forum to be Held on September 9, 2008
It is not too late to register for the inaugural U.S.-Israel High Technology Forum (HTF) that will be held in Arlington, Virginia on September 9, 2008. The HTF, which is being co-sponsored by Bureau of Industry and Security and National Defense Industrial Association, will feature a number of useful presentations to technology companies, including an update on U.S. and Israeli export controls.
In addition to presentations by senior BIS and Israeli Government officials, the program will feature a keynote speech by former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft.
The HTF was jointly formed in 2007 by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the Israeli Ministry of Defense and Ministry of Industry Trade and Labor. The HTF is designed to facilitate secure bilateral high technology trade and investment by providing a forum to discuss challenges and opportunities related to technology development, investment, and trade.
