The Mission organised by the Australia-Israel Chamber of Commerce and the Israel Trade Commission  will focus on Technology Innovation and Israel’s entrepreneurial environment. The Mission will also explore Israel’s excellence in cyber security, big data and R&D.

The Trade Mission, specifically designed for senior leaders from business, government, policy and academia, will expose delegates to key Israeli influencers and enable a sharing of innovative business ideas and opportunities. In addition to the business program, the visit also includes geo-political briefings, cultural experiences, networking events and visits to some of Israel’s most iconic tourist destinations, including the Old City of Jerusalem, the Dead Sea and Masada. Furthermore, spouses are welcome to join, for which a private tourism program will be on offer.

Israel is well recognised for its innovative spirit, outstanding commercialisation abilities and technological achievements. With just over eight million citizens, Israel has more NASDAQ listed companies than any other country, besides the US; more than all of Europe, India and Japan combined. It produces more scientific papers per capita than any other nation by a large margin. It has attracted the most venture capital investment per capita in the world, 30 times more than Europe. It also prides itself by its high ranking of entrepreneurship amongst women – third in the world.

The Chamber has been successfully organising Trade Missions to Israel for over 30 years. Recent mission leaders include the Hon. Bill Shorten MP, Graham Bradley AM, Carolyn Hewson AO, Kevin McCann AM and many more prominent leaders.

The Mission will run from 13 July until Saturday, 19 July, 2014
