European Commission Vice President Antonio Tajani and Israel’s Minister of Industry, Trade and Labor Shalom Simhon, signed two joint statements of intent to improve cooperation in the fields of space and tourism.

The agreement paves the way for the EU’s Galileo global-navigation satellite system to establish a satellite receiving station in Israel, and it also strengthens bilateral cooperation in space-related R&D. To strengthen bilateral tourism cooperation, several actions were also agreed in order to facilitate tourism flows by promoting travel in the respective low seasons.
