Beijing science park to open liaison office in Tel Aviv E-mail

Beijing’s Zhongguancun Science Park (Z-Park), also known as “China’s Silicon Valley”, will open a liaison office in Tel Aviv, Israel. The announcement of the planned liaison office was made in a meeting held on 8 April between the Vice Mayor of Beijing, Yin Hejun, and the Deputy Mayor of Tel Aviv, Doron Sapir. Also attending the event was a senior delegation from Beijing Municipality and high-level executives of Z-Park.

Beijing and Tel Aviv have been twin cities for the past 20 years, and in recent years the co-operation between the cities has increased dramatically in areas such as technology, municipal knowledge exchange, education, culture, art and more. The opening of a formal Beijing office for economy, hi-tech and science issues in Tel Aviv is an indication of the strengthening of the relations between the two cities.

Z-Park’s liaison office in Tel Aviv will serve as the initial base for Chinese companies seeking to do business in Israel, and for Israeli companies seeking business opportunities in China.

Sapir commented: “Beijing and Tel Aviv, like China and Israel, are completely different in size, but share many common values: adopting technology and modernisation, cherishing education, and striving to always improve our municipal systems. The Mayor of Tel Aviv, Ron Huldai, has defined the relationship with Beijing as a prime strategic goal for our foreign relations. In recent years we’ve seen a dramatic increase in the number of delegations and visits from Beijing to Tel Aviv and vice versa. The opening of an economic office of Beijing here in Tel Aviv is an important development that we welcome with pleasure.”
