Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu will be traveling to Japan on Saturday evening for a four day meeting to discuss increasing economic and diplomatic cooperation.

During the meeting, Netanyahu will meet the emperor and empress of Japan, as well as the Japan’s prime minister, Shinzo Abo.

Its expected that in 2014 the Asian market became Israel’s 2nd largest export partner, knocking the US down a notch.

Israel’s exports to Japan stand at $1.1 billion, and its imports at $1.5 billion. According to a Jerusalem Post report, there is a tremendous amount of room for increased trade with Japan.

Trade with Asia is nothing new for Israel. The Far East has been a trade partner with Israel going back 3000 years.

  1. Yes this is a good move, Japan and Israel must unite. These boys can be more deadly if it comes to Electronics, mind that now it is India Germany Israel Japan. English and your Desert mongering Camel traders be aware not to kiss us in the dark. Else you will feel the bite ………

  2. It is ironic, but during WW2, many Jews whom escaped the Holocaust wound up in the part of China that Japan had taken over, especially Shanghai. The Japanese troops did not harass or bother them there, and the few that were killed died due to bombing raids. There was no sign of anti- Jewish sentiment as Hitler fomented in Europe. Now Israel and Japan are large trade partners.

  3. HASHEM WILL BLESS JAPAN FOR BLESSING HIS AM YISRAEL!

  4. Steve Brown says:

    Let's see: two small countries facing giants (Israel: Muslim world; Japan: China) ?

    I'm guessing that Japan wants Quality help with developing nukes…and who better than another small country in the same position ? Israel is a much better source for such expertise than AQ Khan. Me thinks there's more to this story than mere trade.

    Good..
    America.has been taken over by socialist liberals with a Muslim president so America is no longer a reliable partner…even American Jews support Muslim Obama .

    It is good to diversify one's trade. Increasing trade with Asia is all the more reason to make sure the Eliat port upgrade plan gets built. That will give Israel the ability to take in millions of additional TEU worth of trade and bypass the Suez Canal. There will be more trade if Asian shippers can save 1-3 days of travel time and $100,000s USDs it costs to go through the canal.

  8. Judith Dowla says:

    Yes, 3000 years of trade between Israel and Asia is a mighty good record of time. There are many people who are not aware of Jewish synagogues and temples that have been in Japan for quite sometime. The wine business is a big plus for both countries and technology from Israel to Asia is on the up and up. Like the song by two Jewish boys called “Getting to know you…“ from South Pacific, the movie. Good write up again.

  9. Dan Silagi says:

    Godzilla was bigger in Japan than Netanyahu.
