This building will be part of the Techno Park that will contribute to developing a conducive environment for research and development, and will encourage more partnerships with other academic and research institutions.”
Chief Executive Optimist at Palestine-India Techno Park Laith Kassis encouraged Palestinian and international businessmen to invest in various infrastructure and innovative projects at the Techno Park to benefit the Palestinian economy.
Kassis announced that the Techno Park will launch a new project, funded by the Islamic Development Bank and under the supervision of UNDP, to create various projects in the technology sector, the profits of which will go to needy families.
The Palestine- India Techno Park aims to create a national infrastructure, business environment and culture that will enable knowledge-based enterprises to successfully operate locally, regionally and globally.
