China and Israel Toward the Future: A “Digital” One Belt, One Road?

Few people have been as influential as Dr. Yossi Beilin in the drive for peace in the Middle East and economic development.  In the Spring of 1992, Dr. Yossi Beilin (working under Prime Minister Itzhak Rabin) and Terje Rod-Larsen of Norway, in an effort to untangle the stalled peace process, secretly initiated what was later known as the Oslo Peace Process - a historic framework treaty for the resolution of the ongoing Israeli–Palestinian conflict. It was the first mutually recognized agreement between the government of Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).

Fast forward to 2017, and the Middle East is still fraught with turmoil but also with points for hope. In this exclusive session, CEIBS has the honor to invite globally renowned statesman, former minister, author, and consultant, Dr. Yossi Beilin, to talk about prospects for peace in the Middle East as well as business opportunities with the “Start-Up Nation”. Beilin will also discuss his perspective of China’s new role in the region under the One Belt, One Road initiative, and how Chinese investment in Israel’s digital hi-tech economy can create new links and opportunities for peace and economic development between Israel, the Arab countries, and the Far East. Beilin will cover some of the new technologies that are attracting Chinese investors, and how the two countries can further increase business ties for mutual benefit.

We look forward to seeing you at this much anticipated event.
