The professionals of the two countries exchanged technical expertise and considered the future cooperation of Belarusian and Israeli IT organizations.

Tel-Aviv, Israel—During December 12–16, 2010, Andrei Yurkevich, CTO at Altoros, visited Israel as part of the official Belarusian delegation. The event was aimed at establishing partnerships and entrepreneurship opportunities between Belarus and Israel in the field of software development.

The trip was organized by the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Belarus Hi-Tech Park, with the assistance of the Israel Embassy in Belarus and the Chambers of Commerce Federation.


Sharing expertise in software development

During the trip, the IT professionals held a number of meetings with businessmen and government officials to exchange experience and discuss the ways for future cooperation. In particular, the delegation visited the Israel Institute of Export, a governmental agency that operates under the Ministry of Trade and Labor to facilitate trade prospects between international and Israeli companies.

They also attended MATIMOP, the government agency that generates and implements industrial R&D programs between Israeli and foreign enterprises. Finally, the delegation discussed partnership opportunities at local IT companies and met representatives of the leading Israeli venture funds.

Today, Israel is ranked second to the United States in the number of hi-tech companies (3,500). The extensive experience of the countries in software product development is worth sharing and adopting. We believe the expertise exchange like that will result in technology growth for both sides.
