Governor Jerry Brown and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet tomorrow (Wednesday) in the heart of the Silicon Valley to sign a historic agreement that expands California’s partnership with Israel on economic development, research and trade.
Brown was Tuesday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
The signing is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. in the Computer History Museum’s Hahn Auditorium, which is located in Mountain View.
The agreement will boost economic, cultural and academic cooperation between California and Israel, with an emphasis on water conservation, alternative energy, cybersecurity, health and biotechnology, education and agricultural technology.
The agreement will also enable Israeli companies to access California’s Innovation Hubs (iHUB), an innovation network that includes 16 clusters of research parks, technology incubators, universities and federal laboratories, together with economic development organizations, business groups and venture capital funds.
The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard every weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:45, 7:45 and 8:45am.
