Governor Christie Describes Trip to Israel
Now in its final full day, Governor Chris Christie described his trip to Israel as “extraordinary” and “a moving experience.”
The Governor said he’s had a busy three days since landing for the start of his Jersey to Jerusalem trade mission.
“I think we’re going to see a lot come of out it,” Christie said of his trip during a Wednesday conference call with reporters. “It’s been very educational, I enjoyed it, and I’ve been challenged by some of the things I’ve heard.”
The Governor noted Israel is making some educational breakthroughs that he’d like to bring to New Jersey. The groundwork has already been laid out for bringing certain reforms to the Garden State.
On Monday, Christie and his family met with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. On Tuesday, Christie was introduced to Israeli President Shimon Peres.
Christie and his family head to Jordan tomorrow. They return to the States on Easter Sunday.
