from the energy sector.

The group met with the Israeli President Shimon Peres at his official residence in Jerusalem and the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Tel Aviv to discuss Israel’s economic situation, collaboration opportunities between Israel and the United States, and the future of Israel’s energy industry.

Amongst the participants were Senator Juan Hinojosa, Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, chairman of Texas Railroad Commission Victor Carrillo, Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa, the first lady Anita Perry, and CEOs and chairmen of leading companies, including Noble Energy Inc., Western Refining and SigmaBleyzer.

“The discovery of natural gas reserves offshore of Haifa can turn Israel from a gas importer into a gas exporter, altering the competitive landscape of the energy sector.
