U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin touts investment opportunities in Israel, especially for technology.
During a meeting with the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Mnuchin said the White House plans to increase its participation in Israel’s infrastructure projects.
He added Israel is a “great place for trade and other economic opportunities” and relations between Israel and the U.S. remain an important priority.
The prime minister praised the Trump administration’s decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.
Netanyahu also claimed Israel’s relationship with the U.S. has “never been stronger” than it has under President Trump’s administration.
