JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The Mississippi Development Authority will lead a delegation of Mississippi companies on a business development trip to Israel on Nov. 8-12.

MDA officials say in a news release that the trip is designed to connect Mississippi businesses that want to expand trade and create new business relationships with qualified buyers.

The trip will coincide with the UVID International Conference of Unmanned Vehicles, which will be held Nov. 9-10. The conference is a joint venture between AUVSI Israel Chapter and Israel Defense, the leading organizations in the Israeli Unmanned Systems industry.

The Small Business Administration-funded Mississippi State Trade Export Promotion program reimburses eligible businesses up to 50 percent of their travel costs and provides interpretation services.

The deadline to register is Sept. 18.
