I am pleased to inform you that the governments of Israel and the Hong Kong SAR have finally signed a memorandum of understanding on co-operation in industrial research and development. It provides a framework for us to jointly invest and develop new technologies.
We will introduce two Israeli technologies that are operating in China: a water purifying system that helped make sure that pools were clean during the Beijing 2008 Olympics and will be employed in the Guangdong region; and a solution that helps coordinate emergency teams so they can respond faster to save lives.
If you don’t know it yet, Israel’s location at the heart of the only land corridor between Europe and Africa makes it a world-class center for bird watching. At least 500 million birds of 200 different species fly across Israel each spring on their way to and from Africa, Europe and Asia. Please come to visit Israel and enjoy.
