I have no record of any ministerial-led trade missions having being organised to Israel. There is quite a modest level of activity by that agency's client companies in Israel and, accordingly, scarce resources are prioritized for other country markets which offer higher potential.

Enterprise Ireland will continue to support individual companies who wish to explore market opportunities in Israel but there are no current plans for a trade mission to that country.
