Singapore & Israel
By Micah Halpern

Tuesday March 22 2022
I've Been Thinking:

53 years ago, Singapore and Israel established diplomatic relations. The year was 1969. Now, these many years later, Singapore will finally open an embassy in Tel Aviv, Israel

A statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on March 21st explained that the Singapore embassy in Tel Aviv will "serve as a focal point and support Singapore companies seeking to expand their collaboration with potential Israeli partners”.

For years the two countries engaged in covert military partnership. Both Singapore and Israel welcomed closer cooperation in areas such as innovation and technology, trade and investment, research, development, and education.

The Singapore-Israel Industrial Research & Development Foundation (SIIRD) is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2022. Since its inception in 1997, the Foundation has funded about 190 projects, providing about US$120 million to projects between Singapore and Israel.

In addition to announcing the opening of its Tel Aviv Embassy, Singapore emphasized its commitment to a two-state solution and to a peaceful resolution of the conflict between Israel and Palestinians.
