Australia-Israel Chamber of Commerce (AICC) MTP trade delegation

The one-week delegation to Israel is to assist Australia's medical technology, biotechnology and pharmaceutical (MTP) sector to make new B2B connections, engage with Israel's MTP sector leaders and peak bodies, and grow market and investor readiness.

Israel has been dubbed the 'start-up nation', boasting one of the highest rates of entrepreneurship, a strong innovation culture, global concentration of hi-tech companies, and leading advancements in the medical, scientific, environmental and humanitarian development areas.

The AICC MTP trade delegation will connect participating delegates to Israel's leading medical research and technology, and highlight the start-up business ecosystem that underpins it.

Supported by the AICC, the delegation will include a comprehensive program of networking events, B2B meeting opportunities, briefings and site visits.

AICC and MTPConnect invite participants in Australia's MTP sector to experience Israel's business ecosystem and start-up culture first hand, connecting with leaders in the field.
