2014-2015 Annual Assessment

Background

Israel’s relations with India and China have improved and deepened over the past year. China sees Israel as a stable trade partner and anchor of regional stability. Indian Prime Minister Modi is a friend of Israel and is interested in further developing relations between the two countries.

Recommendations

  • Establishing a foundation in Modi’s name to study the history and dynamics of Jewish-Indian relations with an eye to improving them in the future. This foundation would fund Indian and Israelis doing post-doctorate work on the topic.
  • Establishing a Jewish/Israeli cultural center in Beijing that will exhibit art, photography and film, maintain a library and reading hall, and will organize lectures by local and visiting experts and academics on Israel and the Jewish people.
