Du added, "China continues to see more and more cooperation with Israel in technology and we have built such a platform for companies in both countries to find partners."
Since China and Israel established a partner relationship in March, deepened cooperation between the two countries has been seen in several areas.
Dr. Ronen Dagon, chairman of Compass Ventures, said, "I think Zhongguancun is an ideal platform for foreign investors and technology companies, and it is the best place for our company to take our first step in China."
Sha Haijiang, director of the Haidian district government in Beijing, said that the innovation center will help Zhongguancun to attract high-tech talents and introduce technology from Israel and other countries.
