“In the past 135 years the invention of the car and the internal combustion engine have taken humanity an enormous step forward. This revolution has also taken a large toll causing widespread congestion, road accidents and high air pollution, resulting in significant mortality rates. 
“This is both a huge problem in Israel and worldwide. Governments have the power to make a big difference both in the field of smart mobility, automated electrically powered vehicles and in promoting public or shared travel, these options have proven to lead to a dramatic reduction in congestion, pollution and road accidents. Smart transportation, cyber security used for safety of transportation and regional transport are amongst the most important topics in our domestic and regional policy. We have wonderful collaboration between our UAE partners and with colleagues from the Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. I invite all attendees to be as proactive as possible and join us at this important transport event for the benefit of the citizens of our countries and for the future of our children”
