On the 27th of November 2018 the Czech House was officially opened in Jerusalem. It is a joint project of state agencies CzechTrade/CzechInvest, Czech Centers and CzechTourism. The Czech presence in Jerusalem will support the development of cooperation and strengthening of relationship between Czech Republic and Israel in the whole spectrum of activities of the mentioned agencies, including on the trade fields.
Since its involvement in Czech House activity CzechTrade expects mainly to expand its capacity in providing services to Czech entrepreneurs and to increase the awareness of the industrial, scientific and technical potential of Czech Republic in the region.
A number of other institutions also joined the preparation of the Czech House in Jerusalem. For example in the field of trade and economy it was CzechInvest, Israeli-Czech and Czech-Israeli Chamber of Commerce.
Before the opening of Czech House in Jerusalem, the memorandum on cooperation between CzechTrade and Czech-Israeli Chamber of Commerce was signed. In addition to this we have organized in Tel Aviv with the contribution of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic a very successful business forum and B2B negotiations of Czech and Israeli companies.
Note: Czech House Jerusalem is located in very prestigious location in Jerusalem’s Cinematheque, which is also the residence of Israeli film archive.
