Israel's Consulate General to Toronto has launched an effort to bring the benefits and strengths of the Israel-India partnership into local focus.

In partnership with the Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce, the Canada-Israel Chamber of Commerce, the Rajasthan Association of North America and the Jewish community's Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, as well as the Indian consulate general, the consulate has initiated a series of events and media opportunities to showcase the story of Indian-Israeli partnership in the Greater Toronto Area and to allow for business leaders, investors and community leaders to begin identifying the myriad potential synergies it offers.

Noam Ben-Ozer, founder and CEO of Focal Energy, a company which has blended Israeli business and technology inputs with local Indian management and manpower strengths to provide innovative renewable energy solutions across India, will be the keynote speaker at two events taking place in the GTA on Wednesday November 27th.

"Focal Energy is just one example of a new breed of Israeli-Indian partnerships which offer new opportunities for shared success – both local and global", said Israeli Consul General, DJ Schneeweiss. "And what is even more exciting is that the potential for mutual benefit transcends the business dimension as well, and feeds right back into the local community. The GTA is home to large religious and ethnic communities with close ties to both Israel and India, in addition to their longstanding and growing roots here in Canada. We believe that the story of the burgeoning Israeli-Indian friendship can foster friendship and partnership here in Canada, creating new opportunities and new horizons for Canadians of every background."

"Moreover, we believe that the multi-cultural richness and openness of the GTA with its strong communal attachments to both countries, as well as its forward-looking business and political elites, make this place a natural amplifier and partner to the India-Israel relationship in ways which can also bring benefits back home to Canada," he adds.
