Managing the Change – Global Standardization
The Municipality is promoting adoption of norms and methods to render itself and its services to global audiences and position itself at the forefront of global urban endeavors. We are gauging success in this sphere according to the number of municipal departments incorporating global targets in their annual work plans, as well as global connectivity and recognition of municipal initiatives (e.g. "Tel Aviv Smart City" "Tel Aviv Creative City" etc).
Greater Tel Aviv
In the eyes of a foreign visitor, Tel Aviv extends beyond its municipal boundaries and offers meaningful experiences in nearby cities as well. Pooling the assets of the neighboring cities creates a single, continuous urban domain for visitors and investors alike – Greater Tel Aviv.
Tel Aviv - The Gateway to Israel's Economy
Promoting Tel Aviv around the world as the gateway to Israel's economy and a brand that bypasses the existing regional conflict
is viewed as a national interest by the Government of Israel. The government is a partner to the undertaking, and considers Tel Aviv's prominent standing an asset that can contribute to the country's economy and image worldwide. Economic growth stemming from international sources and foreign investments can help fund important national and social initiatives, both in Greater Tel Aviv and in other parts of the country.

To achieve that end, the "Million More" strategy was formulated – doubling the number of foreign visitors to the city in the coming years. Through reaching out to three new target audiences viewed as having considerable potential:
