Gov. Rick Snyder is in Israel talking up Michigan as a place to do business.

He last visited the country 14 years ago when he was a venture capitalist. Snyder says Israel has made big economic strides since then and is looking to sell and potentially make products in the United States.

Snyder told The Associated Press on Monday that Israel embraces research and development but has a naturally small marketplace. He's hoping Michigan can become a bridge for Israeli companies to enter the U.S. marketplace.

Snyder met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Tel Aviv. He also signed a letter of intent with Israel's minister of economy to cooperate on industrial research and development.

This is Snyder's fifth international trade trip and first to the Middle East.
