The Economic Observer 经济观察报

Just got back in Beijing and started the new week. It has been a wonderful and interesting stay in Israel last week.  The tour was well organized and very useful to me as an economy reporter to better understand Israeli economy success and “the start-up” mechanism to make it happen. What’s more, through experiencing myself, though the cloud of war seems never disappear, the real life of Israeli people and economic environment are nice and calm, especially the Med sea in Tel Aviv. It’s so beautiful. I will make sure that would be well reflected in my articles and keep you updated with the publication.

Thanks again for putting up the beautiful 7 day for the Chinese reporters. There’re so many things we could do together with the background of the 20th anniversary of the establishment of bilateral diplomatic relations.  Hope there’re chances for further cooperation.

With Regards,

Feifei Zhang from Beijing

China Business News

To whom ever it may concern,

I am Yue Xu, a reporter from China Business Network Weekly. I am writing this letter to express my gratitude and praise to The Israel Project and Alex Pevzner. The given helps by TIP tremendously assisted me to carry out all my interviews in Israel from Mar.18 to Mar. 26.

Last year when I first met Alex Pevzner and Emma Afterman, I briefly told them CBN Weekly’s plan on doing stories on Israeli hi-tech companies and internet companies. Alex and Emma suggested me a list of good companies and interviewees meeting our expectation very soon. After the final list was determined, Emma contacted the companies and people for us, which I believe required a lot of patience.

During my visit in Israel, Emma arranged a taxi for me to facilitate my transportations and save my time. She sometimes even accompanied with me to do the interviews. Since my time in Israel was not long, the whole schedule set by Emma was efficient. Furthermore, TIP covered a part of taxi fare for me, which saved our budget a lot. I really appreciate Emma’s work.

Another thing I would like to point out is the helicopter trip absolutely offered me a magnificent view of Israel. I appreciate TIP’s arrangement and the explanations during the helicopter trip.

Finally, I also wanted to say thank you to Alex and Emma’s families. They were so hospitable and nice.

The stories will come out as cover story, feature stories and columns.
