The communities support the local ecosystem and its attempts to cope with global partners in order to assimilate innovation which will affect the life of all us. It is needless to say that during these challenging times, the value of communities is greater. When meeting and networking is taking a step back, a strong community allows us to better adapt and continue the support for the Israeli Smart Mobility ecosystem. I am sure that this booklet provides a valuable contribution for that effort. Israel is well known for its innovation. In the Automotive sector, while auto manufacturing does not exist at all in Israel, Israeli companies do excel in the automobile smart technology sector, as it can be reflected in this booklet. With more than 1,400 new startups per year, 300+ multinational companies, thousands of entrepreneurs and a comprehensive business ecosystem, more andmore global automanufacturers and tech giants are looking at Israel while creating the next generation of smart vehicles. We welcome all of them and are happy to assist them in creating partnerships with the Israeli industry. I look forward to welcoming you all back in Israel in the near future.
