Business contacts between Israel and Australia are expanding dramatically, as economic ties deepen. Australia's former Minister of Science and Innovation signed a declaration of collaboration with Israel's Chief Scientist. Australia announced that Tel Aviv would be the first Australian Landing Pad destination, making the development of Australian entrepreneurship in conjunction with the “startup nation” a practical reality. Other bilateral R&D agreements have been signed, a tax treaty is under negotiation, Australian VC funds with an Israeli focus have been formed and Israeli tech companies are listing on the ASX. Yigal Arnon & Co.’s Australia Practice Group is well-situated to help clients leverage the resulting opportunities.
