“On behalf of the Consulate General of Israel it is with the greatest pleasure that I convey my best wishes to the Canada-Israel Chamber of Commerce and its members. The State of Israel attaches great importance to the work of the Chamber in fostering and strengthening the commercial, economic and investment ties between Canada and Israel. Israel and Canada enjoy strong economic ties but there is also huge untapped potential for collaboration and mutual benefit between us. The Chamber plays a key role in tapping into that potential. Through its array of events and activities raising awareness and introducing business on both sides to the many opportunities for partnership and growth, the Chamber is making a meaningful contribution to our respective economies and to the strength and vitality of the bilateral relationship. We look forward to continuing our fruitful collaboration with the Chamber and wish its officers and members every success in your important endeavours.”
“The Canada Israel Chamber of Commerce has the potential to serve as a major factor in enhancing the bilateral economic and trade relations between our two countries. Working in coordination and cooperation with the Canadian and Israel government diplomatic and trade representatives, as well as with other trade and commercial organizations, members of the Chamber will benefit from optimal opportunities to further and to enhance their commercial relations, to network and to see the potential that is offered, in both countries, to those who seek successful investment and commercial contacts. With such a close relationship between Canada and Israel, with the commonality of interests, culture and values between us, a full, imaginative and lucrative commercial relationship in all spheres and at all levels will guarantee the continued strengthening of the close relationship between the two countries.”
“Israel’s Innovation agenda and accomplishments, its strong economy and trading tradition, and its close and expanding ties to Canada are attracting an ever increasing number of Canadian companies to invest in Israel and vice versa. Each side is taking advantage of the many opportunities the other country offers, particularly in sectors such as information and communication technologies (ICT), biotech, clean technologies and financial services. Looking forward, future prospects for commercial relations, joint ventures, and two ways investments are bright. The bilateral relationship is expanding at all levels. The platforms offered by the Canada Israel Free Trade Agreement (CIFTA) and the Canada Israel Industrial Research and Development Fund (CIIRDF) and the activities generated by the Israel Canada Chamber of Commerce (ICCC)and by the newly invigorated and extremely active Canada Israel Chamber of Commerce (CICC) are testimony to the growing interest in and support of the Canadian business community in further developing the ties between our two countries and their business communities. Canada and Israel’s bilateral trade figures continue to grow and new investment and joint venture relationships are being built. I and my team of dedicated and experienced trade officers at the Canadian embassy in Israel are eager to assist this growth and to find new avenues for our bilateral commercial activities. We are especially grateful to the CICC for its efforts to date and look forward to working with it to increase the profile of the relationship.”
“It is with the greatest pleasure that I convey my congratulations to the members of the newly established Canada Israel Chamber of Commerce in Toronto. The State of Israel is pleased to officially recognize the Canada Israel Chamber of Commerce as a distinct organization that is committed to fostering and strengthening commercial and economic ties between Canada and Israel. The Consulate General of Israel played an instrumental role in establishing the Canada Israel Chamber of Commerce and will continue to collaborate with it on its various business ventures. The Consulate General of Israel looks forward to working with the Canada Israel Chamber of Commerce and will be fully active in helping it achieve its goals. I wish you much success in the future.”
“I wish to extend on behalf of the consulate General of Israel in Montreal my sincerest congratulations for the re-establishment of the Canada Israel Chamber of Commerce. In these times of converging markets and globalization, the Canada Israel Chamber of Commerce can play a role in fostering close economic and trade links between our two nations.
