Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick will lead a state trade delegation to Israel.

Patrick, a Democrat, will tour Britain and Israel from March 7 to 17, his office said Tuesday, according to the Boston Globe.

Patrick’s statement noted that nearly 100 companies with Israeli founders or Israeli-licensed technologies employed 6,000 people and generated $2.4 billion in income in his state in 2009.

Robert Kraft, who owns the New England Patriots franchise in the National Football League, will be among the state business leaders accompanying the governor.
