IsCham opens a Tel-Aviv Office E-mail

Israel Chamber of Commerce in China (IsCham), a nonprofit organisation launched in 2008 in Beijing to promote trade relations between China and Israel, has established an office in Israel.

Ariel Briskin, the General Manager of IsCham, spoke at the inauguration ceremony in Tel-Aviv in April. The two countries had established diplomatic and trade relations 25 years ago, including mutual investments, infrastructure projects, and export and import agreements.

However, the relationship holds greater potential, he said.

“The opening of the TelAviv office represents a new dawn for the relationship between China and Israel,” Nechemia Peres claimed at the event, a co-founding partner at Israel-based venture capital firm Pitango Venture Capital.

His father, the late Israeli President Shimon Peres, launched IsCham over a decade ago in an effort to nurture the academic and commercial collaborations between the countries, Peres said.

“Israelis tend to think of the US as the main market for growth,” said Tal Badt, former director of business development for startup incubator X-Lab, operated by Tsinghua University in Beijing.
