Posted on: 22 Jan 2014

H.E. Mr. Yuval Fuchs, the Ambassador of Israel to Georgia; Oded Kapitolnik, the President of the Globegateway, an Israeli company, and George Zghenti, the Director of Mashav, Canter for International Cooperation met with the Partnership Fund’s management on January 22. At a business meeting they discussed the opportunities to organize Georgia Gateway, Israeli-Georgia innovation forum scheduled for March 12-13 for the second time. The thematic sectors were also on the agenda. "We organized such a forum last year, and want to organize it this year too; however, this time we want to expand the content and invite well-known Jewish Brands,” Oded Kapitolnik said, adding that "the forum will arouse the interest of Israeli companies to invest in Georgia.” "For us cooperation with Georgia is very vital. I guess that for any country and especially for you, it’s important to attract more investment. However, I can say that in the long-term perspective it is important to boost export volume. My advice would be to work also in this direction,” Yuval Fuchs told the PF representatives. At the meeting the PF Executive Director Irakli Kovzanadze underlined the importance of cooperation with Israeli State and expressed readiness to participate in the forum. In addition, Kovzanadze also spoke on those priorities sectors in which the PF implements its main projects: agriculture, energy, manufacturing and infrastructure. Delegation from Israel expressed interest in agriculture, healthcare and traditional sectors. Globe Gateway is the leading Israeli company which provides foreign trade services and specializes in organising trade events in Israel and around the world.
