The magazine will include comprehensive and up-to-date surveys about trade relations with a special emphasis on those sectors that have the greatest potential for Israeli exporters.

Ongoing Growth in Israeli Exports to Asia

Hong Kong remains Israel's leading export destination in Asia with about $3 Billion of the country's exports sold there, followed by India which enjoyed 2.1$ billion an almost 78% increase, China $1.4 billion and Korea $600 million Export.
