Netanyahu: We Want a Small Share of a Large Market


Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu opened the business part of his visit to China, Monday, traveling from the Shanghai airport to an exhibition at a high-tech industrial park, according to a media release by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser. He viewed a series of innovative technological developments – inter alia, in the fields of alternative energy, urban development, the environment, aviation and space, computer networks, medicine and entertainment technology – by leading companies active in China.

Next to a wall on which were the logos of the companies operating in the high-tech park, Prime Minister Netanyahu said, "We see here the logos of many of the world's leading companies. I hope that we will soon see on this wall the logos of many Israeli companies; this is the goal – to expand bilateral economic cooperation and significantly increase Israeli exports to China." The prime minister said he came to open doors to give Israeli companies a small share of a big market.
