Israeli Chamber of Commerce president visits Peoria
“A lot of countries have bankruptcy,m they have very big problems with their economy. We cannot assume that their products will get to Israel,” Carmely says.
Carmely says the Israeli Chamber wants to add to its business relations beyond U.S. machinery, and into areas including medical service and food products from small and medium-sized businesses. The outreach is part of a nation-wide tour for the Israeli Chamber officials, who travel to the Quad Cities next week. They visited part of the Illinois River, the Riverfront Museum and Caterpillar Visitors’ Center during their stop in Peoria.
