During a two-day visit to Israel, Prof. Dr. Dragan Primorac met with Israeli President Isaac Herzog, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Knesset Speaker Amir Ohan.
President Herzog particularly emphasized the excellent bilateral relations between Israel and Croatia, and Primorac introduced him to a number of Croatian-Israeli economic and scientific projects, including the cooperation of the Croatian Special Hospital St. Katarina with Israeli partners, especially in the field of personalized medicine.
Relations between Israel and Croatia have never been better and are getting better every day, said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and pointed out: We are especially proud of the fact that we have new friends and some old friends who strengthen their alliance with us. Croatia is among them.
The chairman of the Advisory Board of the Croatian-Israeli Business Club (CIBC), Moti Giladi, attended the conversation between Prime Minister Netanyahu and Dragan Primorc, during which they highlighted the enormous influence of the CIBC on the development of bilateral relations, since 2010 when Dragan Primorac founded the CIBC with support of Nobel laureate Shimon Peres, the former Israeli president.
