UK-Israel Ambassador’s Roundtable on Tech collaboration for Africa and the Middle East (June 2019)
Last month we collaborated with the Anglo Israel Association (AIA), Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET) and Israeli Embassy in London to discuss ways in which UK-Israel Tech collaborations can help solve some of the most pressing issues facing Africa today. We were joined by representatives from the Ghanian and Uganda government together with Israeli and UK investors and innovators. The main obvious synergies found were around clean energy, water development, smart mobility, and digital health. This was the 10th Ambassador’s Roundtable, with the aim to inspire, engage and promote an insightful discussion around technology and the developing world, whilst strengthening international relationships. Esteemed speakers included HE Mark Regev, Ambassador, Embassy of Israel, Lord Bew, Simon Fisher, Executive Director, Save a Child’s Heart and Gidon Bromberg, Director of Eco Peace, Middle East.
