Israeli ambassador to Lithuania Amir Maimon visited Klaipėda and said Israel is seeking ways to work with Lithuania not just in the spheres of culture, education and health-care, but also through business contacts. Israelis are most interested in the Lithuanian meat market.

The ambassador is putting Israeli and Lithuanian businesses in contact and there should soon be a new market for Lithuanian meat in Israel.
