"The coming Innovation Day is another important tier in our successful economic cooperation with Dutch industry and government and builds upon a similar event held in the past. I have no doubt that this important event will increase cooperation between the two countries," said Ohad Cohen, head of Israel's Foreign Trade Administration.

Government officials from Amsterdam, The Hague, and Rotterdam, as well local businesses, will be presented with the latest technological innovations from Israel related to smart transportation, smart energy, and cyber-security.

"The term 'smart city' refers to a wide range of technologies, including security (physical security and information security), communications, applications, smart transportation, recycling, water, control and monitoring, and software. The smart city has vast business potential for a large number of Israeli technology companies," said Ofer Sachs, director of the Israel Export Institute.
