Economics Minister Naftali Bennett participated, Thursday, in an event to culminate the year's activity in the program to educate students to prefer Israeli-made products. He congratulated them on their competition to come up with a "most Israeli product", won by two Jewish schools and one Arab school, saying, "Every state and geographical region has something it mines: in Africa it's diamonds, in Saudi Arabia it's oil and in Israel, it's the Israeli mind." Referring to Israelis whose business ideas have become international concerns, he said, "Here, in this room, we have the next Gil Schwaid, the next Seth Wertheimer, the next initiator of WAZE."
Bennett concluded, "We all have dreams and ideas, but the challenge is to realize them. The difference between a dream and reality is the desire and ability to take the dream and the idea to fruition. It's permitted to fail but not to give up. I thank you, teachers and leaders of the project and ask one thing of you : Do not ever stop dreaming."
