Deputy Consul General Revital Malca spoke to the Jewish Journal during the event. "We are promoting Israel's technologies," said Revital Malca. "We have a big conference coming up that takes place every two years. It's an international trade show [Water Technology and Environmental Control Exhibit and Conference in Tel Aviv from Oct.22-24] and we're encouraging local companies to go to Israel to visit the conference and as a result of that to have cooperation with Israeli companies. Any business cooperation can help both countries."
