Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle's trade mission to Israel is scheduled to begin on Friday.

According to the state Department of Commerce, the weeklong trade mission is designed to promote Wisconsin's water and environmental technologies, life sciences, agribusiness, and other industries.

Doyle is scheduled to address the International Water Technologies and Environmental Control Conference and Exhibition in Tel Aviv.

Doyle's office says Israel was Wisconsin's 40th largest export customer last year, making about $68 million in purchases.
