More that 60 percent of territories in Israel are desert. After its establishment, the country suffered from water shortage for several decades. Now, Israel has became a nation that produces 20 percent more water than it needs and even supplies water to its neighboring countries.
Israel managed it by pioneering and unprecedented wealth of technological innovation and infrastructure to prevent the country from drying up.
Both China and Israel are facing the same issue-not enough available water resources; we all need to secure enough safe water to catch up the fast economic growth. The Chinese government has responded by measures such as rapidly building out the water infrastructure and increasing regulation as well as exploring a number of further technological solutions.
On June 15th, IsCham together with ViaMeshi Association hosted an online event showcasing the Israeli innovative water treatment solutions. The event was co-organized with China-Israel Jizhi (Guangzhou) Technology Co., Ltd, with the support from The Israeli Economic Mission in Guangzhou.
The event began with opening remarks from Yuval Ben Sadeh, Chairman at IsCham, who is also an expert in the water treatment ecosystem, Ben Haimi, Economic Consul at Consulate General of Israel in Guangzhou and Litchie Lee, Co-founder of China Israel Jizhi (Guangzhou) Technology Co., Ltd.
The opening remarks were followed by our roadshow. Five innovative Israeli water treatment companies introduced their excellent technologies. Attendees from related sectors raised questions to the companies after the pitching about their technologies and successful projects in China.
