China's Haier Looks to Israeli Tech to Make Its Fridges Smarter, Says Exec
Yifeng (Yael) Zhou, Haier Israel's director of business development, told Calcalist that the Chinese appliance conglomerate's new living room ice bar fridge will be designed in Tel Aviv
Despite the Israeli cabinet’s Wednesday announcement regarding the establishment of a committee that will oversee foreign investments in Israel, Zhou is confident Haier’s activities in Israel will not be affected. The company selects technology that has already been developed or is in the later stages, so Haier should not face trouble when scouting for Israeli innovations, she explained.
The interview took place on the margins of the 7th annual summit for Business With China taking place in Tel Aviv on Thursday organized by the Israeli Chamber of Commerce in China and Meda-Conferences.
