In his second year in office, trade between the people of Israel and the United Kingdom doubled. Daniel Taub, who will be resigning this summer, will be remembered for his input in business, as the United Kingdom Ambassador for Israeli. Since he took over the office four year ago, trade has deepened and progressed in multiple ways. In addition to that, academic platforms and businesses have expanded between the two countries.
In a statement by the British Secretary of Business, Mr Sajid Javid, Daniel had fostered trade between the two countries to a level that hit the golden era. Until now, more than 300 Israeli businesses have successfully set up in the United Kingdom. In a report by the chamber of commerce, these enterprises are approximately over $5.5 billion.
His Early Life
Daniel Taub was born in the United Kingdom. He was appointed the ambassador of Israeli in 2011 and has since played a pivotal role as a negotiator and peace facilitator. He once, as a peace negotiator, joined his counterparts in a journey to Northern Ireland. His sole purpose for travelling was learning their culture, political and economic atmospheres. A couple of years before Britain’s most significant student union that voted for adopting a boycott in Israel, Daniel, in an interview, said that he was worried for campus students and the environment in which they grew up. He also warned the administrators to foster the freedom of speech as every student was entitled to one.
In 2014, Daniel Taub paid a visit to Bradford. The tour came after the city’s parliament representative, Mr George Galloway, declared the place out of bounds from Israelis. Until now, Taub has been industrious in what would be termed as peacekeeping. Even though his successor has not yet been announced, it is evident that it will be challenging to fit into his shoes.
Daniel Taub attended multiple universities including Oxford University College, the Harvard University and the University College of London. In 1989, he moved to Israel. He was appointed as a combat medic for Israel Defense Forces. Subsequently, he landed a position at the IDF’s law division. He also worked as a communications expert where he juggled speech writing and advisory roles. In 1991, he was entrusted with an executive position at the foreign ministry for Israeli.
Daniel has an impressive track record of work and peace facilitation. He fits the description of a perfect peace ambassador. As he leaves the office to explore other challenging fields across the world, it is evident that his services will be missed because of his input in business and peace facilitation.
