see LAT: Gov. Jerry Brown to sign trade pact with Israeli prime minister
Gov. Jerry Brown will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu next week in Silicon Valley to sign a trade, research and economic development pact between Israel and California.
The agreement, Brown's office announced Friday, will emphasize cooperation on water conservation, alternative energy, cybersecurity, health and biotechnology, education and agricultural technology.
It also will allow Israeli companies to access California's Innovation Hub program, in which research parks, federal laboratories and universities collaborate with businesses, venture capitalists and economic development organizations. WhatsApp comes up in the piece too..
