Governor Sandoval Plans Trade Missions To Mexico, Israel

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval says he will lead trade missions to Mexico and Israel in the upcoming year to promote the state's export opportunities.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal (http://bit.ly/XAgr6R) reports the first-term Republican governor made the announcement Friday during a luncheon speech before the Las Vegas Regional Economic Development Council in Las Vegas.

Sandoval tells the newspaper the mission to Mexico follows overtures by Latin American business leaders about investment opportunities in Mexico and other Latin American markets. As for the Israel trade mission, Sandoval mentioned water companies that could potentially be targeted for business deals.

Sandoval canceled a trip to Israel last February to focus on Nevada's own economic development plan.

He led a trade mission to China and South Korea in September.
