AMERICAN
SOCIETC

ichigan offers the
best business oppor-
tunities for Israeli
companies of any U.S. state,
Israel Economic Minister
Gabriel Levy said Tuesday.
Speaking to members of the
American-Israel Chamber of
Commerce of Michigan in
Novi during its first Israel
Technology and Product Com-
mercialization Conference,
Levy said Michigan is set up
and systematically to accom-
modate a myriad of joint
business ventures with Israel.
Levy and State Commerce
Director Doug Ross each
noted the state's strengths —
its manufacturing capability
from the automotive industry,
biotechnology companies and
agriculture. State, American-
Israel Chamber of Commerce
and Israel business leaders
hope to target Michigan's
large corporations to en-
courage participation. Among
them will be the several food
and pharmaceutical com-
panies headquartered in
Michigan.
"We have to move toward a
free market," said Yoram
Gabbay, Israel economic con-
sul for the Midwest. "Our
future is basically in the
United States. We need to
deal with American
businessmen."
To date, five Israeli com-
panies — military supplier
Urdan Industries, robotics
supplier Robomatix Ltd., soft-
ware designer Tecnomatix,
machine maker Computeriz-

ed Machine Tools and com-
puter system company In-
Thchnologies — operate offices
in northwest Detroit. Gelman
Sciences of Ann Arbor is the
only Michigan company that
runs a research and develop-
ment facility in Israel.
Ross named Debra
Schneider, Commerce Depart-
ment manager of interna-
tional joint ventures, as the

"Our future is
basically in the
United States. We
need to deal with
American
businessman."
Yoram Gabbay

state's professional business
matchmaker for Israel.
Schneider recently returned
from a trip to Israel, where
she met with government and
business leaders.
"We developed specific vi-
sions and strategies to
become a center for North
America for manufacturing,"
Ross said. "We want to create
a technology pipeline. We
want to be a world leader."
During the day-long con-
ference, Michigan
businessmen met with
representatives from Israeli
companies and the Israel Ex-
port Institute.
"In the field of hi-tech, we
are welcome here more than
in places like the Silicon
Valley," said Rafi Glick, the
export institute's industrial
division director, who came to
Detroit for the first time for
the conference.
