Israel is among the top 20 countries investing in the UK, according to figures released by UK Trade & Investment in July.

According to the figures, record numbers of countries invested in the UK in 2009/10, with 16 projects coming from Israel.

In terms of numbers of projects, the US is the largest source of investment in the UK, followed by Japan, France, India, Germany, China and Australia.

Software and computer services, advanced engineering, and life sciences attracted the most investment.

Israel’s financial daily Globes reported that at the UK Trade & Investment Business Summit last month, UK Prime Minister David Cameron said that the Coalition Government is committed to helping the world’s best companies to thrive and grow in the UK: “We are determined to deliver the pro-business environment investors need; getting the deficit down to create certainty and stability, cutting business taxes, delivering flexible employment and cutting red tape and regulation.”
