Murphy heading to Israel this weekend for 4-day trip –

Posted By on August 6, 2022

Gov. Phil Murphy is headed to Israel for four days beginning Sunday to attend a series of economic development meetings, his office announced late Friday afternoon.

The trip is being funded by the Center for Innovative Policy, a think tank with ties to Democratic governors. Murphy is slated to return to New Jersey on Thursday, his office said. Delaware Gov. John Carney, a fellow Democrat, is also making the trip.

In Israel, the governor will conduct a series of economic development meetings to deepen ties with businesses to benefit New Jersey, as well as visit cultural/religious sites, Murphy spokeswoman Alyana Alfaro Post said in a statement.

Murphy has made multiple trips to Israel since he took office, including early in his first term when he spent four days there for similar events. That trip was paid for by Choose New Jersey, a business-funded nonprofit formed in 2010, and included a trade mission to Germany.

Other trips to Israel while hes been governor have been shorter.

During his four days, Murphy is expected to visit Yad Vashem, return to the Western Wall, visit with Ambassador Tom Nides, meet with unidentified government officials, and meet with American-Israel Chamber of Commerce officials, his office said.

Weve got an enormous amount of history between New Jersey and the state of Israel, Murphy told the news website ROI-NJ, which first reported the trip.

The governors office didnt announce any additional details of the trip and the Center for Innovative Policy didnt immediately respond for comment.
