Asia Pacific

Industrial R&D Cooperation with Asia-Pacific Countries:
China, Japan, India & Australia

Of the world’s largest economies, the four countries that constitute the Asia Pacific Department at MATIMOP hold top spots. According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), China is the world’s 2nd biggest economy, Japan comes in at number 3, India ranks in at 10, and Australia holds the 12th spot. These countries – and the Asia Pacific region in general – offer enormous opportunities for industrial R&D cooperation to Israeli companies.


Through R&D alliances, Israeli companies not only benefit from the unique strengths and skills of their partner company, but can also make the most of market opportunities unique to the Asia Pacific region. R&D cooperation can help companies wishing to expand their activities into these respective markets – which represent some of the largest in the world.


Bilateral cooperation agreements currently in place with China, Japan, India and Australia help facilitate cooperation with Israeli companies, providing access to funding and assistance in partner-matching for industrial R&D projects in all fields.
