On the heels of trade mission trips to China and Japan, Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner has plans to head overseas again in the coming months.

Rauner says in about three weeks, he will head up a trade mission to Israel, meeting with Israeli officials, business leaders and university heads in hopes of expanding opportunities for Illinois.

“We are going to be signing more memorandums of understanding between the U of I and Technion and other universities there. They have world-class research universities. They love Illinois, and we are going to be expanding our innovation and technology investment here in Illinois in partnership with the Isrealis,” said Rauner.

The governor says after Israel, he will travel to Europe, with stops in the United Kingdom, Germany and Poland.
