Israel and China relations are reaching new heights as investors and entrepreneurs throng conferences in China and Tel Aviv and the two countries gear up for talks on establishing a free trade zone. In Tel Aviv, as part of the second annual China-Israel Investment Conference, around 500 Israeli startups met with 1,000 Chinese investors and strategic players, the organizers said. The conference was part of the DLD Innovation week that took place this week in Israel. The conference was an initiative of the Infinity Investment Group with the assistance of the Israeli Ministry of Economy and Industry, after a similar conference was organized in Beijing in January.
