Why Choose Israel

The Israeli population is almost fully vaccinated against the Covid – 19 virus as well as the various variants which have evolved around the world, making Israel one of the first countries to get back to business. In my opinion, Israel is now looking forward to enjoying a bright economic period over the next number of years. During and even before the Covid crisis, Israel’s economy was ranked higher than average.
