The delegation will hold meetings in the leading trade and commercial centers in China, including Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing. The trade missions of the Israeli Ministry of Economy will hold special events at all of those locations to encourage investments. These events include B2B meetings between representatives of the Israeli funds and the Chinese investors. Each of the events is expected to host some 150 representatives from leading financial and technology companies, as well as other investment houses and major private investors. Additionally, a networking event will take place at the new Israeli Business Center in Shanghai which was established by the Foreign Trade Administration at the Israeli Ministry of Economy and inaugurated by Israeli Minister of Economy Naftali Bennett during his recent trip to China.
Col. (res.) Ziva Eger, Director of the Division for Foreign Investment and Industrial Cooperation at the Israeli Ministry Of Economy, is heading the delegation, which includes representatives from funds investing in the life sciences, communications, cleantech and ICT industries. The unit was recently established by merging the Invest in Israel division of the Economy Ministry and the Industrial Cooperation Authority, with the aim of promoting foreign investments in Israel while diversifying the sources, types and fields of investments.
The special events are being run by the trade representatives of the Foreign Trade Administration in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing, and will be attended by the Israeli ambassador to China and the consul-generals in Hong Kong and Shanghai. The events were organized by the Foreign Trade Administration and the Division for Foreign Investment and Industrial Cooperation at the Israeli Ministry of Economy.
