With a decade of major technological cooperation between Israel and China, the prospect for more joint efforts between the two countries in the sector seems brighter and more optimistic, especially after the 25th anniversary of the establishment of China-Israel diplomatic relations in 2017.

In an interview with Xinhua, Aharon Aharon, chief of the Israeli Innovation Authority, and Avi Luvton, director of Asia Pacific Operations at the authority, both saw China as a critical player in Israel's innovative future.

"China is one of the most important and strategic countries that we would like to cooperate with," Luvton said.

He referred to China's huge market and technological capabilities, hailing it powerful "not only in terms of size, population and military but also in technology."

In 2014, China and Israel established an intergovernmental committee for innovation aimed at promoting mutual technological development.
