About 1,000 senior executives and entrepreneurs from the city of Nanjing in China are expected to participate in this special program over the next five years.
To mark 20 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the People’s Republic of China and Israel, the city of Nanjing, capital of Jiangsu province, will hold “Nanjing Day” at Tel Aviv University’s campus on Monday, 21 May 2012. A cooperation accord between Nanjing, a city with a population of eight million, and Tel Aviv University, will be signed, and an exhibition of Chinese art, “The Beauty of Nanjing”, will be opened. "The Night of Nanjing”, open to the general public, will take place in the Bar Shira Auditorium from 18:30 to 19:30, with performances by dancers, singers and acrobats from Nanjing who will be coming specially for this event.

Chinese organizations usually send their senior officials to study in the US and Singapore. The members of the Nanjing delegation chose Israel and LAHAV Executive Education at Tel Aviv University’s Faculty of Management for their studies in order to get a first-hand taste of Israeli entrepreneurship and innovation from Israel’s experts in the field.
Under the cooperation accord between the educational entity representing the city of Nanjing and LAHAV Executive Education to be signed on “Nanjing Day” on 21 May at Tel Aviv University, every year for the next five years, the city of Nanjing will send over 200 senior executives, entrepreneurs and officials for studies at LAHAV. The title of the program of studies will be Entrepreneurship and Innovation The Israeli Model. In the first program, scheduled to begin on 22 May 2012, the students from China will learn about the special characteristics of this model, and how it supports the creation of global enterprises in various hi-tech areas. The program includes meetings with leading academics, managers of venture capital funds, government officials, and visits to leading companies in the area.
Prof. Klafter said, "Tel Aviv University is proud to play a focal role in strengthening academic relations between China and Israel. The program of studies for senior officials and leading entrepreneurs from the city of Nanjing, the first of its kind at Tel Aviv University, opens opportunities for important academic, scientific and research activities."
