|IsCham Shanghai branch launched|
The Israel Chamber of Commerce launched its Shanghai branch on 30 November, with the aim of strengthening bilateral business ties.
IsCham is a non-profit organisation established to represent and assist the Israeli business community in developing commercial relations between China, Israel and the Jewish world. IsCham strives to promote Israeli businesses in China and to serve Israeli companies and individuals in China. It was launched by former Israeli president Shimon Peres in August 2008 during the Beijing Olympics.
Yuval Ben-Sadeh, Chairman of the Israel Chamber of Commerce in China commented: “Our goal is to make the Chamber a home for all the people who want to know Israel, to all Israeli who want to know China, to all the people who want to co-operate about culture, business and tourism and to meet friends,” he said.
