More than a 100 meetings between Israeli technology companies to South African and African media companies last week in global media event in Amsterdam. Following the Visit of Israel’s Efrat Fenigson to South Africa in July and a seminar on new-media technologies from Israel, many of South Africa’s TV operators, broadcasters and related companies visited the Israeli pavilion at the IBC Amsterdam exhibition and conference.

The Embassy of Israel thanks all the south Africans that have visited our pavilion and that expressed interest to cooperate with Israeli companies. for us, it is a start of long term partnership. We invite you to come to Israel to attend Contech Israel 2010 (8-10 November), to meet more Israeli technology providers and meet global industry leaders at the conference.

The Embassy of Israel stands in support of the South African broadcasting industry in its efforts to keep the decision to adopt the European digital broadcasting standard DVB-S. We believe that that is the right standard for South Africa, both in technological point of view and social point of view. There s no doubt that in terms of economy of scale, the Euroean standard is more valuable, while the Japanese one, will limit the SA industry to the local market.

One hour of government official in Israel costs in averrage USD30 . if you multiply it by the number of e-Transactions and e-Forms submitted in Israel every year you get 120 Million USD. Having in mind that the Israeli government spends 20 Million Dollars annualy on e-Gov services, you get a saving of 100 Million USD every year and an improvement of the service delivery and a happy Israeli citizen. Doesn’t it make much more sense?

Israel’s experience with e-Gov services is very successful. 3.2 Million visitors at e-Gov web sites every months; 250,000 forms submitted online every month; 21%of all government transactions are done online. the UN ranked Israel 17th in its last e-Readiness ranking in 2008.

In the coming July, after the World Cup, an Israeli delegation of Software companies will visit South Africa to meet with decision makers in the public and private sectors.

Below is a presentation I gave last month at the 4th Annual e-Gov Africa Forum 2010 held in Maputo, Mozambique.
