Inbound trade mission from Israel - 4-10 October 2010

Dr. Orna Berry, the Chamber’s Chairperson and Israel’s former Chief Scientist led a trade delegation from Israel focusing on a diverse number of topics including telecommunication, information technology, retail, aviation, tourism and food and beverage.

More than 150 meetings collectively were scheduled between the 12 delegates. The highlight of the week was two cocktail receptions (one in Melbourne and one in Sydney), where leaders from the community and members of the Chamber attended to meet and greet the delegates. The telco reps of the mission also had the privilege to meet and present to senior members of Australia’s leading telecommunications organisations, including: Telstra, Optus, Vodafone and others. Of particular emphasis was the opportunity to meet Telstra’s CEO, David Thodey at a private reception.

Both the Israeli delegates and the Australian hosts were overwhelmed by the experience and are confident that the mission will create many business opportunities and will expand and enforce bi-lateral trade opportunities between the two countries.
