Israeli Team Going to China

Six of Israel’s most prominent business leaders and industrialists will fly to China at the invitation of the Beijing government next week for 10 days of intensive economic discussion, the Israeli daily Yediot Achronot reported Wednesday.

Although Israeli business and trade groups have gone to China before, this is the first time Chinese authorities have publicized such an event.

Meanwhile, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra left Wednesday on a three-week concert tour of the Far East. The orchestra will perform in Japan, Hong Kong and, for the first time, Taiwan, which has no diplomatic relations with Israel.
