MK David Rotem (Israel Beiteinu) told The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday that his recent trip to Hong Kong as chairman of the Knessset Christian Allies Caucus (KCAC) was a great success. "KCAC director (Josh Reinstein) and I met with top political and Christian leaders and impressed upon them the importance of strengthening relations in the fields of religious dialogue, economic investment and tourism," he told the Post. The KCAC is encouraging Chinese-Israeli tourism and cross-economic investment, and plans to hold a 2010 conference in Israel for hundreds of Asian pilgrims, encouraging political and religious cooperation and the expansion of Asian tourism to Israel. The KCAC hopes to promote tourism and encourage hundreds of Chinese to visit Israel in the next year, creating the basis for further cooperation and tourism. "We are thrilled by the initial success of these meetings and will continue to develop these ties." Rotem said. The Hong Kong talks were sponsored by the East Gate Foundation and the delegation convened with Christian politicians and religious leaders to discuss matters of mutual concern such as mobilizing international support for Israel and developing cooperation based on Judeo-Christian values. "It is estimated that there are around a hundred million bible-believing Christians in China. That is a tremendous bastion of support for the State of Israel. It is important that the KCAC continues to build strong ties to this community." Reinstein said. This is the KCAC's sixth such delegation to Asia in as many years. Previous congregations included Jerusalem Summit conferences in the Philippines, South Korea, Singapore and Japan. The KCAC currently has three sister caucuses in Asia made up of Christian politicians that work directly with the KCAC. Comprised of seventeen Knesset members from various parties, the KCAC was established in 2004 by the late MK Dr. Yuri Shtern. The caucus operates with the goal of creating and maintaining direct lines of communication between Knesset members and Christian leaders, organizations and political representatives both in Israel and throughout the international community.
