It will expose delegates to key Israeli influencers and enable a sharing of innovative business ideas and opportunities.

“I am delighted to lead the trade mission and invite interested parties to join me,” Clyne said. “We will be looking at innovation in Israel, examining the latest developments in information technology, cyber security and other solutions for both the financial services and other key industry sectors. We will also gain insight into Israel’s excellence in R&D, science and education.”

This will be Clyne’s second visit to Israel with the Australia-Israel Chamber of Commerce. “The Chamber team will deliver the highest level of professionalism, enabling access to the most influential people in Israel and the opportunity to be exposed to this remarkable country’s most innovative and cutting-edge technologies,” he said.

The mission includes a business program, geo-political briefings, cultural experiences, networking events and visits to some of Israel’s most iconic destinations, including the Old City of Jerusalem, the Dead Sea and Masada. Individual meetings can also be tailored for delegates, and a private tourism program will be on offer for spouses.

The Chamber has been organising trade missions to Israel for over 30 years. Recent mission leaders have included Opposition Leader Bill Shorten and such prominent business directors as Graham Bradley, Carolyn Hewson and Kevin McCann.
