ISRAEL - International Digital Forum Led by Israel

Arno Froese

Israel is set to host the D9 International Digital Forum for the first time. Held simultaneously in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, each of the nine participating countries present notable national projects as well as their plans and hopes for a digital future.

The forum will be led by the Minister of Social Equality and Member of Knesset Gila Gamliel.

“[I am] overjoyed for the right to represent the State of Israel and the Israeli government as president of D9 Forum and host of the annual conference, shaping the course of tomorrow’s world,” Gamliel said. “Israel is located at the forefront of the digital power technology in the world. We are harnessing technology while also encouraging growth, improving government services and reducing social inequalities [in the process].”

At the forum, Gamliel will launch a new Israeli-founded platform for online education called “Campus” with the hopes of releasing it nationwide, as well as a national plan for digitizing Israel, simply named “Digital Israel.”

Members of the digital forum include Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Uruguay, Estonia, South Korea and Israel—while Mexico and Portugal will be entering into the collection of countries.

Major events of the forum include panels discussing Israeli innovations, including smart cities, digital education, digital health, digital economics, ethical issues and the digital transformation.

Arno's commentary

A nation fighting for its survival, surrounded by hostile nations (except Egypt and Jordan), is “located at the forefront of the digital power technology in the world.” 

The intellectual elite are coming to Israel. Here we are reminded of Ezekiel 34:28-29: “And they shall no more be a prey to the heathen, neither shall the beast of the land devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and none shall make them afraid. And I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the shame of the heathen any more.”
