​The Foreign Trade Administration

The Foreign Trade Administration (FTA) at the Israeli Ministry of Economy and Industry manages and supports Israel’s international trade and trade policy. Through our headquarters in Jerusalem together with over 40 economic and trade missions in key financial centers throughout the world, the FTA promotes Israel’s economy worldwide.

Israel’s economic and trade missions are at the forefront of the Israeli government’s efforts to boost our industries in foreign markets. Our team of highly experienced economic representatives and business consultants provide a wide range of services to Israeli companies and to the international business community.

The FTA is divided into three main divisions, each promoting the Israeli economy in distinct and significant ways:

  • The Trade Promotion Division – works to ensure the continued development of Israel’s exports.
  • The Trade Policy and International Agreements Division – responsible for Israel’s free trade agreements, maintaining and developing inter-governmental relations and addressing regulatory barriers that affect Israeli industry.
  • The International Projects and Financing Division – offers different programs that support Israeli companies in their business operations abroad.

At MEDICA 2019, for the 12th consecutive year, our Economic and Trade Missions around the world will continue to work on connecting the international business community with Israel’s innovative Medical Devices Industry, as it has done in previous years with great success.
