The Galilee lacks inclusive growth engines for strengthening the region.

Strengthening the Galilee
Demographic and Geographic Challenges
The diverse Jewish-Arab population, facing many challenges in education, employment, housing and more, alongside the large dispersal of local authorities in Israel, make the promotion of broad cross-sectional changes particularly complex.
The Galilee is characterized by advanced industry (4.0), in addition to innovative agri- food-tech. The link between industry and applied research, innovation, and continuous STEM studies from kindergarten to employment provide an exceptional opportunity for growth in the area.
Initiatives for Inclusive Growth
University in the Galilee, high quality employment at high salaries, accessible public transport, and other initiatives, will bring about regional social-economic development.
Quality of Life
The Galilee is characterized by abounds nature, wide open spaces, community, life of colabarations and the opportunity of bridgingthe gap with neighboring countries.

A Dynamic Labor Market and Outdated Systems
The exceptional technological advances we have experienced over recent decades, alongside the Covid pandemic, have changed the labor and training market. In this interdisciplinary world of constant learning at every stage of life, special skills are a necessity. The education systems do not adapt fast enough. The organizational culture in the business sector does not adapt itself to the required changes in the training of new employees, preservation and professional development of existing employees, innovation implementation, and more.
Human Capital and High
Productivity as Engines of Growth
High-quality and diverse human capital is a necessary condition in order to tackle the low productivity and foster growth among advanced industry, high-tech and agri-foodtech in the Galilee and in the rest of Israel.
Deficiency in Public Resources
Despite the public discourse about the importance of training for developing human capital, the government resources dedicated to promoting this topic are limited, the policies are only partially implemented, investment in research and innovation is lacking and there is little cooperation between relevant government offices.
What does success look like?
