(Jacksonville, FL) -- Governor Rick Scott is headed for the Holy Land.
He's taking a delegation of some 70 Florida business and education leaders on a trade mission to Israel this weekend.
He told the Enterprise Florida Board of Director's meeting in Jacksonville yesterday that the goal is to return with more jobs. Scott says international trade between Florida and Israel adds up to almost 300-million dollars per year.
This is the governor's second trade mission to Israel and he says the first one in 2011 was an "astonishing success."
GOD bless his CHOSEN PEOPLE! Thank you Rick Scott! Israel and Florida - INSEPERABLE!— Corred (@Corred42) September 29, 2017
