Mississippi governor and Israeli ambassador push trade

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Leaders of Israel and Mississippi say they want to increase what is now a tiny trade between the Magnolia State and Middle Eastern nation, building an economic relationship on top of political ties.

Gov. Phil Bryant and Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer hosted a trade meeting Tuesday in Jackson. Dermer says Mississippi can benefit from Israel’s technological innovation, while Bryant says he wants Mississippi to enhance its economy by trading with an ally.
