Building Bridges: Ambassador of Israel to the Philippines explores startup linkages between Israel and the Philippines through NDC

The Ambassador of Israel to the Philippines, H.E. Ilan Fluss, recently met with the National Development Company General Manager, Anton Mauricio, to explore ways to develop mutually beneficial pathways between Israeli startups and Philippine startups.

Despite the current crisis, H.E. Fluss continues to lay the groundwork for further partnerships with the Philippines.

Israel leads the world in many areas of technology, while the Philippines has a huge consumer market, a vast pool of local talent, and a vibrant startup community.

Future partnerships would entail more opportunities for Filipinos in the technological field, including entrepreneurs involved in innovative startups.
