AICC President Tom Glaser: War Doesn’t Slow Israeli-Georgia Commerce


rally1While Israel weathered rocket attacks and sent tanks into the Gaza Strip in response, the American-Israel Chamber of Commerce in Atlanta continued business as usual, recruiting companies here.

“The activity was as robust as it has ever been,” said Tom Glaser, the chamber’s Southeast regional president. “Our business with Israel did not change at all.” The business impact of the fighting between Israel and Hamas was largely localized, said Mr. Glaser. “Certainly within Israel where rockets were hitting cities, there was impact on businesses that provide services to local people,” he said.

But the chamber is working with international companies based in Israel, many in the health care and technology fields, that were not disrupted.
