A first of its kind collaboration: The Israel-Dubai Conference is set to take place in Dubai on December 8-10.

In a joint initiative by Bank Leumi, Reshet 13 and Calcalist, Bank Leumi Chairman Samer Haj Yehia and CEO Hanan Friedman will lead a special delegation of Israeli industry and business leaders to the conference aimed at encouraging business cooperation between the two countries.

The conference will examine ways of extending ties in the fields of finance, technology, industry, agriculture, health, and tourism. It will receive widespread media coverage on Calcalist’s and Reshet 13’s platforms.

CTech will be there to provide reporting on the conference proceedings and offer exclusive interviews from the senior participants.

In April 2019, already before the recent signing of the UAE-Israel peace accords, Israel confirmed its participation at Expo 2020, the international mega-event that was to be held in the United Arab Emirates, ISRAEL21c reported at the time. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was cancelled.

World Expos are international fairs dating back to 1851 in which countries showcase innovations and discoveries. According to organizers, the Dubai Expo – the first to be held in the Middle East – was expected to attract some 25 million visitors between October 20, 2020 and April 10, 2021.
