The IAESI has acted, is acting, and will continue to act, to advance Israel's hi-tech industry, with decision makers in the government and the Knesset, so that they will help the industry continue to successfully contend with the ever increasing and strengthening competition, all the while continuing to flourish.
The IAESI has chosen to expand the hi-tech industry's sales turnover to $40 billion each year, within a few years. To achieve this goal, the IAESI introduced a policy document detailing the issues to be considered, to the relevant decision makers. In order to promote these issues presented by the IAESI, meetings were held with Knesset Ministers, with senior officials of Ministry offices, and with members at large of the Knesset. Admittedly, the processes are long, but we will continue to act. Approving these proposals will have an effect on all companies, from the start-up stage through small, and medium companies, and up to the largest companies. The IAESI believes and is convinced that this goal can be realistically achieved, and that decision makers in the Government and in the Knesset must act.
IAESI policies and activities are decided upon and charted by its Board composed by 11 members and headed by its Chairman. The Board is elected by the IAESI general meeting, and represents a broad range of its member companies. IAESI maintains contacts with similar organizations abroad and is an active member in forums, encompassing electronics associations throughout the world:
• AEF – Asia Electronics Forum
• WEF – World Electronics Forum.
These associations meet periodically for discussions and exchange of information on the global electronics industries. These meetings contribute to strengthening ties, and occasionally to opening doors to industrial benefits.
IAESI is an associate member of ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute), thus enabling its members to participate in the deliberations of this body and influence standardization in the telecommunications & computers field.
IAESI will continue to lead and act for Israel's hi-tech industry and thus the Israeli economy as a whole.
