"In partnership, British and Israeli companies can pioneer groundbreaking cyber security solutions to the benefit of both nations. The UK-Israel Tech Hub launched by the British Ambassador to Israel, H.E. Matthew Gould, is already doing an exemplary job of promoting the UK as the European partner of choice for Israel’s burgeoning tech companies. With senior Government officials leading a near-continuous series of high-profile business delegations to the ‘Start-up Nation’ it is clear to see that the UK is keen to learn from Israel’s success."− James Morris MP
