Tsofen - High Technology Centers

Tsofen - High Technology Centers

Tsofen strives toward full integration between Israel’s Arab citizens and its hi-tech industry as a means of encouraging sustainable economic development and a more equal society. In order to achieve its goals, Tsofen works with the Arab community and stakeholders from the local, governmental and private sectors to (1) add thousands of Arabs into Israel’s hi tech sector and (2) create hi-tech centers as economic anchors in Arab towns. Such centers provide employment opportunities in hi-tech for thousands of Arab and Jewish workers. This is beneficial to the hi-tech industry, which has a shortage of workers, and to area residents, whose quality of life is improved.
