The Michigan Israel Business Bridge (MIBB) announces the 6th Michigan Israel Automotive Event taking place in SE Michigan. MIBB will host a delegation of more than a dozen Israeli hi-tech companies interested in doing business with auto-related companies in Michigan in mid-June.
“We have seen time and time again how Israeli innovation and Michigan’s strong business attributes are ingredients for successful collaboration and growth” said Hannan Lis, President of the Michigan Israel Business Bridge. “We are proud to be able to facilitate programs that bring Michigan and Israel together.”
The trade mission is organized by MIBB in partnership with the Israel Export and International Cooperation Institute and the Government of Israel Economic Mission to the Midwest. It will include high-level discussions between suppliers from Israel and Michigan automotive OEMs and suppliers to foster economic development and partnership. The 2015 delegation is made up of Israeli companies with hi-tech innovations and solutions. Several of the innovations developed by the Israeli companies can improve quality and reliability, as well as environmental, safety and technical features of a vehicle.
