Tsofen strives toward full integration between Israel's Arab citizens and its hi-tech industry as a means of encouraging sustainable economic development and a more equal society. In order to achieve its goals, Tsofen works with the Arab community and stakeholders from the local, governmental and private sectors to (1) create hi-tech centers as economic anchors in Arab towns and (2) add thousands of Arabs into Israel's hi-tech sector. The existence of hi-tech industry provides employment opportunities in hi-tech for thousands of Arab and Jewish workers. This is beneficial to the hi-tech industry, which has a shortage of workers, and to area residents, whose quality of life is improved.
