US-Indian tech leaders visit Israel

Participants to witness demonstrations of recent Israeli innovations in such areas as electric car technology, meet with their Israeli counterparts to discuss bilateral and trilateral partnership opportunities

A group of prominent Indian-American high-tech leaders are visiting Israel under the auspices of Project Interchange, a non-profit educational institute of the American Jewish Committee (AJC).


The visit is being conducted in an intensive seminar format, developed by Project Interchange specifically for this delegation of executives from across the United States.


Participants will witness demonstrations of recent Israeli innovations in such areas as electric car technology and will meet with their Israeli counterparts –-including high-tech heavyweights Yossi Vardi and Jonathan Medved— to discuss bilateral partnership opportunities between the United States and Israel, and trilateral opportunities that would include India.


The Project Interchange seminar will run through April 27.


In addition to meetings on technology and commerce, participants will hear briefings by Israeli leaders on a host of political and societal matters, such as foreign policy and security.


Also on the agenda are discussions on immigration and absorption, and sessions highlighting Israel’s diverse makeup and efforts toward interfaith co-existence. These and other topics, including high-tech solutions for humanitarian purposes, as well as Palestinian politics and society, are intended to expose the group to a wide range of complex issues facing Israel.


Sam Witkin, Executive Director of Project Interchange, said: "Project Interchange is pleased to host this prominent group of Indian-American high-tech leaders. We expect the visit to both bear fruitful partnerships and expand relations between Israel and the broader Indian-American community.”


Recent Project Interchange delegations have included the Presidents of the Pacific Island nations of Micronesia and Nauru, college newspaper editors, American Latina leaders, and journalists from the US, Scandinavia, and Latin America, with upcoming seminars for presidents of various US universities and North African leaders.
