Change of management for the Chamber a the private residence of the Ambassador.

Mr. Zvika Kezurer was unanimously elected as chairman of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Israel Lithuania ".


He serves in this honourable role fully voluntary.


Zvika was born in Vilnius and at the age of 9 immigrated to Israel. ′′ A few years ago my Lithuanian roots started to tickle inside me, and I was looking for a way to connect with them.


I came to the Chamber of Commerce Israel-Lithuania as a director, and recently I am rewarded with the decision to take my involvement one step further and run for the role of chairman.


Zvika sees the potential embodied in the economic relations between Israel and Lithuania.


"Over 80 % of Lithuania's young people speak English and 50 % of them speak another language. The areas that have broken forward in recent years are life sciences, computing infrastructure, and fintech. Additionally, the leaning companies are developing".


For Israeli companies looking for high-level computing infrastructure or system development professionals - Lithuania is an excellent choice. The most prominent example of the subject is WIX, an Israeli company, which opened a large development centre in Vilnius.


Collaborations on life sciences are highly recommended. A number of collaborations have already been made between Israeli and Lithuanian companies including clinical studies.


And recently Lithuania has become an excellent entrance gateway to the European market, especially in the field of Fintech. Already today there are a number of Israeli companies that have opened centers in Lithuania ".


If you are an entrepreneur or businessman, who wants to expand your activities and enjoy the fruitful square that Lithuania offers for businesses, you are welcome to contact Tzvika, who will make the right connections for you! Please contact zvika@ilth.org
