Not all Utah trade missions have to result in increased exports to foreign trading partners. Some focus as much on opening a pipeline to bring foreign companies to the Beehive State.

Such was the case late in October when Moshe Yanai and his team visited Utah from Israel for a three-day inbound trade mission. Arranged by the Governor’s Office of Economic Development and EDCUtah, the visit was one of the first fruits of Utah’s trade mission to Israel and the West Bank, which Gov. Gary R. Herbert led last April.
