History

Israel.jpg

Relations between Germany and Israel is strong and mainly founded in their shared social values ​​and the long and sometimes tragic history of the Jewish communities in Europe. This connection between the two countries is expressed through a wide range of economic, cultural, scientific, technological and political activities and in constant dialogue with heads of state, ministers, parliamentarians and public figures.

Diplomatic relations between Germany and Israel were first officially established in May 1965. From then, they have developed into a strong relationship. A sustained contribution to this, is the 'German-Israeli Future Forum', which was founded in 2005 and was initiated on the 40th anniversary of German-Israeli relations.

Regarding economic relations, Germany is Israel's second largest trading partner after the US, and Israel is Germany's second largest trading partner in the Middle East. Currently, their main goal is to promote and strengthen the cooperation between small and medium enterprises, as well as to increase investment and projects in the areas of energy efficiency, environmental technology and life sciences.

The German-Israeli cultural relations have grown in recent decades. The first contact between the cultures was done before the official establishment of diplomatic relations. Nowadays, the cultural exchange between Israel and Germany is mainly done in the areas of film, literature, theater, music and visual arts.
