Jon Medved, the Israeli venture capitalist who backed and built investment platform OurCrowd, says tightening technology ties with the Trump administration and allowing Israeli companies to continue to open branches in the U.S. will benefit both countries’ economies.

Medved said he hoped Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would put technology on the agenda when he meets Wednesday with U.S. President Donald Trump in Washington. The two leaders are expected to discuss regional issues like Iran, the Islamic State and Israeli settlements.
