The relationship between Israel and Asia has evolved from strong historical ties symbolized by the Silk Road. Today, it encompasses strategic partnerships in technology – sometimes called the Innovation Highway. This strategic relationship is supported by deep historical, cultural, and spiritual links. China is now in the process of becoming the largest investor in Israel, and these two countries are perfect partners in the new era of globalization. They share strong and complementary competitive advantages, with Israel contributing technology and innovation and China providing robust financial and manufacturing capability. With the incredible rise of Asia’s economy, now is clearly the time for Asian and Chinese businesses to join forces with the Israeli tech ecosystem to achieve greater innovation and business impact.
