GLOBES International Division


The International Division a Profile

Yacov Ben-Amir LLB- Head of the International Division "Globes International" initiates and publishes International Supplements presenting economic profiles of countries that maintain, or are seeking to establish, trade relations with Israel. Foreign Embassies in Israel are co-opted into this endeavour, as also are State Governments, and the Commercial Sections of the Embassies.

"Globes International" Profile Supplements zero in on the Business Focus of the surveyed country, by means of interviews with key figures and the economic "who's who", as well as write-ups and outlines on companies, industrial enterprises, financial and economic institutions and organizations. "Globes International" Supplements are created in accordance with the principles of professional journalism, citing sponsorship and financing by the participating entities, mostly corporate bodies, and sometimes the co-operation of the reviewed country's Economic Institutions and Ministries of International Trade.

Since coming into being, "Globes International" has published economic profiles on India, Germany, the United States, the Netherlands, Poland, Finland and Taiwan. These supplements feature prominent economic personalities including the Ambassadors of those countries, Economic and Commercial Attaches serving in Israel, the German Chancellor, former Prime Minister Shimon Peres, Germany's Minister of Economic Affairs, the President of Germany's Central Bank, the Ministers of Agriculture, Industry and International Trade of India, the President of India's second largest bank, the Polish Minister for Economic Affairs, chairpersons, presidents and managers of companies and financial institutions.

"Globes International" Supplements are an important, indeed a vital source of information for the development of International Trade and Tourism between Israel and countries around the world.

As an exclusive Israeli press product, in terms of its quality, the "Business Focus Supplements" of "Globes_International" are distributed to "Globes" 45,000 subscribers. Approximately 200,000 people read "Globes" daily. One thousand copies are delivered to the Foreign Embassy in Israel in co-operation with which the particular edition was produced, and are snatched up in a matter of days.
