Tel Aviv-Yafo is currently leading Tel Aviv Global City - a municipal and national initiative aimed at elevating the city's global standing. The main target of the initiative is to position the city as a global business and cultural center by focusing on the city's unique values and assets.

Greater Tel Aviv is already known as a center of technological companies and services, and a creative hub for entrepreneurs of all sorts. The Tel Aviv Global City initiative is a 10-year process that will result in a leap of the city's centrality, attractiveness and relevance. 

Tel Aviv’s per capita income is around $5,000 leaving room for growth and development. With an increase in the IT sector and over a million visitors per year that growth is already under way. Tel Aviv has a large pool of 370,000 employees to drive each sector forward and two large universities including a number of technical schools to provide an educated work force.
