Global city Tel Aviv as source of pride for Israeli people

August 19th, 2014

Tel-Aviv, Israel's leading international business and start-up city is the commercial gateway to Israel. This is why Israel Post is going to commemorate this city with a new stamp. According to info, this stamp will be available from September and will illustrate the vibrant, innovative and cultural world city.

On April 11, 1909 a few dozen people gathered on a sand dune to the northeast of Jaffa in order to allot plots of land for a new neighborhood called "Ahuzat Bayit". Akiva Aryeh Weiss, the chairman of the lottery vowed they would build the "New York of Eretz Israel". The founders of Tel Aviv were undoubtedly visionaries who dreamed large dreams despite the small odds.

Today, more than 100 years after the founding of Tel Aviv, the city is the gateway to Israel. It is an urban economic and cultural center on a global level. The city is now at the height of a groundbreaking strategic process to establish itself as one of the world’s twenty leading cities.

A "global city" is a leading city that constitutes an international business center which directly and tangibly affects world affairs. Tel Aviv has been strategically positioned as "the Startup City", encouraging entrepreneurship and innovation in order to give it a relative advantage over other cities.

Tel Aviv-Yafo, the first Hebrew city and now a global city as well, will continue to be a profoundly Israeli city, all the while being a global leader in the fields of economics, tourism, culture and society. It serves not only as a source of pride for its residents, but also contributes greatly to Israel's global image, economy, financial stability and cultural, academic and social achievements.
