Changzhou seeks out Israeli investment

4 June 2014
A community centre for Israelis, complete with a synagogue and kosher restaurant, are set to be established in the next two years in the Yangtze River port city of Changzhou, Jiangsu province, reported The Times of Israel.

On a visit to Tel Aviv last week, Stone Shi, deputy administrator of Changzhou’s Wujin Hi-tech industrial zone, said that within five years he expects 50-100 Israeli companies to have established operations in the area.

“We want Israelis to feel comfortable doing business in our region,” said Mr Shi, “and the new centre, 25,000 sq metres large, will provide them with an opportunity to enjoy Israeli culture, both secular and religious, and will even offer kosher food — Chinese style, of course.”

Changzhou is situated just north of Taihu Lake and roughly halfway between Shanghai and Nanjing.
The Grand Canal passes through the city, while the Yangtze itself flows about 20km north of the downtown area.

Changzhou’s pillar industries include agricultural machinery, power generation and transmission equipment, telecoms equipment, engineering machinery and vehicle manufacturing. It is an important domestic production base for high-speed diesel locomotives, diesel engines and electronic devices.
