ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- Gov. Martin O'Malley will be going on a business trip to Israel in November.

O'Malley's office announced the eight-day trip on Monday.

The governor will be leading a delegation of business, elected and civic leaders.

O'Malley's office says the itinerary is still being developed. He is scheduled to travel to Eilat to speak at the Eilat-Eliot Renewable Energy and Innovation Conference with Israel's chief scientist, Avi Hasson.

He also is scheduled to go to Tel Aviv where he will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

It will be O'Malley's second economic development trip to Israel. He last led a trip in 2008.
