This article is more than 8 years old.

On Friday, Governor Deval Patrick wrapped up his trade mission in Israel, where he traveled in hopes of luring Israeli businesses to Massachusetts and developing economic relationships with Israeli companies. His next stop: Great Britain.

Accompanying the governor on the trip are numerous business executives from the Boston area, including Andrew Tarsy, executive director of Boston's Progressive Business Leaders Network. WBUR's All Things Considered host Sacha Pfeiffer spoke with Tarsy by phone from Jerusalem on Friday and asked him how he responds to inevitable questions about whether the trip amounts to more than just a junket.

This program aired on March 11, 2011.
