Governor Rick Scott is leading a delegation of almost 70 Florida business and government types on a trade mission to Israel this weekend.
He says the goal is to return with more jobs.
"I hope every place we go they're also successful, but of course, I want all the jobs. I represent Florida, I want all the jobs here," he said.
Scott says international trade between Florida and Israel adds up to almost $300 million per year.
This will be Scott's second trade mission to Israel and it's not just business... there's a political angle.
Before leaving, Scott expressed support for the idea of moving the U-S Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
