Utah officials visit Jordan, talk business and development

Originally aired: Monday, October 30, 2017

Gov. Gary Herbert met with Jordan's King Abdullah II on Sunday and with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as part of a seven-day trade mission in the Middle East. Utah businesses export computers and other electronics, as well as machinery, transportation equipment, chemicals and fabricated metal products to those countries. The United States has a Fair Trade Agreement with Jordan and Israel, both of which have strong science and technology sectors that align with Utah's emphasis in those arenas. Israel is also a global center for high-tech design, research and development, which could provide Utah's Silicon Slopes opportunities to collaborate. KSL NewsRadio's Doug Wright talks to Governor Herbert and World Trade Center of Utah CEO Derek Miller about what they learned in the Middle East. The Doug Wright Show is hosted by KSL News Radio's  Doug Wright, who also hosts the infamous KSL Movie Show. KSL News Radio is part of Bonneville Media and based in Salt Lake City, Utah. Don't forget to review and subscribe to the Doug Wright Show podcast on iTunes.
