Today is the last day in Israel for many members of the Massachusetts delegation. Check out a slideshow of photos from the trip above and catch up on our coverage of each day with our previous blog posts:
- Day One: MassChallenge kickoff in Tel Aviv (now with video!)
- Day Two: Innovation Economy roundtables
- Day Three: Innovation Economy Town Hall and meetings with government officials
- Day Four: R&D agreement signing, touring Yad Vashem
On Friday, the Governor and delegation members participated in the Wexner Israel Fellows Breakfast, leading a conversation with a group of Israeli public officials who studied at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.
After that meeting, the Governor hosted a debriefing for the full Massachusetts delegation to recap the progress the group made over the last week and the opportunities for collaboration and growth that were strengthened over the course of the week.
As the trade delegation wraps up the Israel portion of the Massachusetts Innovation Economy Partnership Mission 2011, we’ll continue to bring you real-time updates and media from the next phase of the trip in the United Kingdom.
Stay tuned and don’t forget to follow @MassGovernor for updates.
