Jordan and Israel are valuable markets for Utah companies due to their locations and targeted industries. In Jordan, top industries include agriculture, technology, renewable energy and safety, security equipment, etc. In Israel, important industries include aerospace, transportation equipment, agriculture and energy. Because of the overlap in targeted industries, there is a lot of opportunity for collaboration between Utah and these countries.
