Quebec Trade mission to Israel and West Bank

Montreal Mayor Gérald Tremblay addresses the media
about his forthcoming trip to the Middle East
as Israel Consul General Joel Lion looks on.
Montreal May Gérald Tremblay has a book to recommend to local entrepreneurs: Start-up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle.

That 2009 bestseller by Dan Senor and Saul Singer has been the Montreal mayor’s bedtime reading as he prepares to lead an economic mission to Israel and the West Bank Sept. 8-14, in co-operation with the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal.

Close to 50 representatives of Quebec businesses, universities, professional firms, and agencies are joining the mission. It marks the first time in more than a decade that a Montreal mayor has visited Israel. -- Janice Arnold, Canadian Jewish News
