Israel’s track record of success and a similar climate brought a delegation from the US state of Georgia here last week to get a look at local cleantech and greentech firms.
Representing private companies, public, utilities, and government officials, the nine officials traveled all over the country looking for ways to integrate Israeli technology into their organizations. According to executives of a major water company based in Georgia, the US will overhaul its water infrastructure in the next 10 to 15 years. So the company has begun looking ahead to see how it can position itself with the most attractive line of products, including some blue-and-white ones.

Among their many stops, the delegation met with the Israel Newtech team at the Industry, Trade, and Labor Ministry. Israel Newtech is an umbrella organization for Israeli water and renewable energy companies interested in contracts abroad. The group was brought here by the American-Israel Chamber of Commerce Southeast Region, which has developed strong ties between the Georgia business community and Israel.
