Trade Missions

Experience the Start-Up Nation On the Ground

Innovation is the essence of Israel, and for almost three decades, the Australia-Israel Chamber of Commerce has been taking Australian business leaders, academics, politicians, and policymakers on trade missions there to experience this for themselves.

These immersive, transformative visits provide in-depth exposure to Israel’s vibrant innovation eco-system and to the unique characteristics and culture that continue to make Israel a frontrunner in global innovation and entrepreneurial success.

Delegates have unrivalled access to Israeli business and academic leaders in an insightful and stimulating schedule of meetings and site visits.

Our trade missions facilitate closer business relationships, foster trade and investment, raise awareness of potential joint venture partnerships and technology transfer arrangements, and increase awareness of the extensive opportunities that exist between the two countries.

The increase in the frequency, seniority, and size of delegations in recent years is testament to the growing recognition of the value of our trade missions, and the role they play in advancing trade, investment, and other collaborations between Australia and Israel.

Board Meets World
In the February 2018 issue of Company Director, the magazine of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, recent delegates on our trade missions to Israel outline the benefits of understanding the country’s innovation eco-system and how universities commercialise intellectual property.

I found the Australia Israel Chamber of Commerce Women's Leaders Trade Mission to Israel to be a deeply inspiring and motivating experience. It challenged my thinking on many levels and left me with a broader understanding and appreciation of the world we all live in.

The Trade Mission was carefully curated to ensure the best provocateurs and thought leaders were on hand to share their perspectives on what makes Israel the standout Innovation / Startup Nation. The program was also crafted to ensure you were immersed in the culture, religion, geo-political and economic frameworks that make Israel the country that it is first, I found this made the difference to enhancing understanding, appreciation and comprehension.

The calibre of the delegates was world class - an impressive group of women who are all pioneering their respective industries whether that be in Government, Academia, Startup and or Big Company environments. And perhaps most rewarding - were the personal bonds, the new friendships that were forged out of sharing a deeply enriching experience together.

I would highly recommend the Women's Trade Mission for anyone looking to elevate their thinking around innovation, leadership & how to inspire teams to think big, think differently and build purpose within our work and broader life environments.
