Israel will now join the ‘D8’ group of advanced digital countries.
The UK and Israel have entered into a digital governance pact to develop digital public services, which both countries hope will help citizens, businesses and economic growth.
The memorandum of understanding (MoU) will see the two countries exchange information and experiences around open markets, open standards and open source. They will also collaborate to ensure they are able to build digital public services and develop further ways of working internationally.
UK Minister for the Cabinet Office Francis Maude said: "So, we will look to find new ways of working with Israel’s impressive array of digital businesses and draw on its culture of entrepreneurship.
"There’s a great deal we can learn from one another."
The latest deal will see Israel becoming one of the D8 group of advanced digital countries, which already includes South Korea, New Zealand, Estonia and Singapore.
Israeli Prime Minister’s office Director-General Harel Locker said that British experience in the field of digital services is important and extensive, and this agreement will allow Israel to benefit from that experience.
"On our part, we offer the British and the D8 countries Israeli innovation and creativity, including in cyber security," he said.
