Premier Kathleen Wynne is heading to the Middle East for a week-long trade mission that the government says will focus on the life sciences and research sectors.

The delegation is set to travel with the premier to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, then on May 19th Wynne and some of the delegates will go to Ramallah in the West Bank and to Haifa in Israel the following day.

The premier’s officer says two-way trade between Ontario and Israel last year was valued at more than 900 million dollars.

Delegates include Jewish-focused businesses and organizations looking to strengthen existing ties to Israel, and universities and research institutes.

BlackBerry, Roots Canada, I-B-M Canada, Scotiabank, Thomson Reuters and the Toronto Stock Exchange also are part of the trade mission.
