A special seminar on the introduction of foreign experts was held in Yancheng on Jan 12. The office of the Yancheng Talent Working Group hired Yossi Marek as "Yancheng Foreign Expertise Introduction Ambassador".

The Yancheng Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs signed a cooperation agreement on introducing intellectuals, and 10 companies held talks with Yossi Marek on future cooperation.

MATAT was founded in 1993 with the encouragement and support of the Israeli Foreign Ministry. Its goals are to expand Israel's cooperation and goodwill by supplying practical knowledge to various countries.

Yancheng and Israel's MATAT has maintained good long-term cooperative relations. The organization has sent a number of senior experts in agriculture and health for technical guidance. 

In recent years, Yancheng has stepped up efforts to attract talents from overseas and deepened cooperation with foreign expert organizations such as Japan's Technicians Association, the German senior expert society SES, Israel’s senior expert organization MATAT and French expert consultative association ECTI.

In 2017 alone, 87 new foreigners were introduced to the city, 17 short-term high-end foreign experts and 419 others. Three were selected to participate in the "100 Foreign Experts Program of Jiangsu Province", which laid a solid foundation for Yancheng’s development in the future.
