Hundreds of participants are expected at the 2014 Israel-Asia Summit. This year's event is entitled Empowering the Next Billion: The Future of a Connected Society in Asia and is expected to attract leading entrepreneurs and investors from Israel and Asian countries.
“By 2016, half of the world’s 3.4 billion internet users will be in Asia. Most of these will be in emerging markets - many of them accessing internet for the first time via a mobile device,” stated organizers. Last year's event attracted over 350 participants from twelve different nations.
