The MP for Havant, who participated in CFI’s trade-focused delegation to Israel in May 2018, explained that Israel “is recognised around the world as a ‘Start-Up Nation’ when it comes to tech companies – with more start-ups per capita than anywhere outside Silicon Valley, an established entrepreneurial culture, and hundreds of multinationals looking to invest in Israeli innovation”.
He said that it is clear that “the greatest success in a future economy increasingly driven by new technologies will be achieved by Britain and Israel working closely together”.
Mr Mak, who is the founder and Chair of the APPG on the Fourth Industrial Revolution, stressed: “A stronger partnership between our two countries will bolster our reputation as world-leading centres of free trade, free enterprise, and groundbreaking scientific research”.

Most of all, working together will help us tackle the challenges and seize the opportunities of the Fourth Industrial Revolution”.
