The Oklahoma Israel Exchange
The mission of OKIE is to foster enhanced cooperation between the state of Israel and the state of Oklahoma in commerce, agriculture, culture and education.
The U.S.-Israel relationship is based on the twin pillars of shared values and mutual interests. Given this commonality of interests and beliefs, it should not be surprising that support for Israel is one of the most pronounced and consistent foreign policy values of the American people. By engaging in SHARED VALUE INITIATIVES in areas such as the environment, energy and health, the citizens of both nations benefit.
Today's interdependent global economy requires that trade policy be developed at the national and state level. Many states are realizing significant benefits by increasing trade with Israel. At least 22 states have cooperative arrangements with Israel.
In 2002, Oklahoma exported nearly $3.5 million worth of manufacturing goods to Israel. Israel is now Oklahoma's 54th largest trade partner. The total value of exports since 1991 have exceeded $106 million.
Israel is certainly a place where potential business and trade partners can be found. It can also be a source, however, for innovative programs and ideas for addressing problems facing the citizens of Oklahoma.
Israel, for example, has developed a number of pioneering education programs. One, the Home Instruction Program for Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY), has been praised by President Clinton as “the best preschool program on earth” and replicated throughout the country after first being adopted in Tulsa in 1984.
A range of other exciting approaches to social problems like unemployment, environmental protection and drug abuse have been successfully implemented in Israel and could be imported for the benefit of Americans.
The potential for greater cooperation with Israel for the benefit of Oklahoma is limited only by the imagination.
