In a quick followup to Sharyn Mittelman’s recent blog on the growing numbers of international students who are coming to study in Israel and learn how Israelis innovate,

the China Daily is the latest newspaper to run a story about this phenomenon, highlighting that China’s growing ties with Israel are becoming more public within China and that more Chinese are starting to sit up and take notice of the benefits of the relationship.

According to the story, Israel is investing in luring Chinese students, while a reciprocal level of interest is growing among Israeli students to study Chinese and open a new chapter in Israel’s relationships with China.
