The Israel Export and International Cooperation Institute appointed BDO-I2I as the representative body for a new initiative with the Economic Department, Embassy of Israel in New Delhi and Consulate General of Israel in Mumbai.

Mahindra Special Services Group, India’s leading Corporate Security Risk Consulting firm has been selected by The Israel Export and International Cooperation Institute (IEICI) as its Homeland Security (HLS) partner. This development will significantly enhance exchange of ideas, expertise and technologies between Israel and India. This was announced at a Press Conference at the India-Israel Homeland Security Cooperation forum held in Mumbai today. Present on the occasion were Ms. Orna Sagiv, Consul General, Consulate of Israel, Mr. Avi Hefetz, CEO, IEICI, Mr.David Keynan, CEO, BDO-I2I India Business Consulting and Captain Raghu Raman, CEO, Mahindra Special Services Group, among others.

 

The IEICI has appointed BDO-I2I, a leading Indo-Israeli business consulting firm, as the representative body for a new initiative between IEICI and the Economic Department, Embassy of Israel in New Delhi (the First Secretary – Economic Affairs) and the Consul – Economic Affairs, Consulate General of Israel in Mumbai, towards promoting, assisting and guiding Israeli and Indian companies to take active part in the business opportunities which exist in both countries.

 

Commenting on the appointment, Mr. Avi Hefetz, CEO, IEICI, said, “Israel and India share a lot in common and have strong bilateral economic ties. India today is Israel’s third largest trading partner in Asia and one of the ten most important globally. Israel's HLS industry has initiated and implemented state of the art homeland security solutions, based on doctrine, experience and know how acquired through decades of combating internal security and terror threats. I am confident that with the combined expertise of MSSG and BDO-I2I, Israeli and Indian companies will achieve new heights of success in business cooperation and mutual benefits.”

 

Captain Raghu Raman, CEO of Mahindra Special Services Group, averred, “Post the tragic 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai, we were approached by several Corporates in India, seeking advice on security solutions from countries that are considered to have an evolved outlook towards security. As the official HLS partner for IEICI in India, we are now in a position to study Israeli solutions and consult Indian organizations on acquiring the right technologies that match their needs. That said, as a premier consulting firm, we will continue to maintain objectivity as our role would be limited to studying, filtering and recommending the right organizations in conjunction with BDO I2I.”

 

Mr. David Keynan, CEO, BDO-I2I India Business Consulting, added, “As part of its role as the HLS partner, MSSG will act as the ‘industry advisor’ for IEICI’s member companies scouting for business opportunities in India. MSSG will guide relevant participating Israeli companies into the Indian market by providing India specific market intelligence. Given their leadership position in India’s corporate security and HLS space, MSSG is best suited to advising businesses on some of the world’s best Israeli technologies. Leveraging BDO-I2I’s vast experience in representing Indo-Israel business opportunities coupled with MSSG’s security consulting experience, we are excited about bringing tremendous value to IEICI's members.”
