Times of Israel – The United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday hosted an Israeli-led conference on entrepreneurship attended by Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, General Assembly President Vuk JeremiÄ‡, and representatives from around the world, including Kuwait, Tunisia, and Bahrain.
The conference — which is the result of the passing last year of an Israeli resolution calling on member states to promote entrepreneurship — is part of an effort by Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs to steer away from conflict-oriented issues and brand itself as a world-leader in using innovation as a means of battling poverty, creating jobs, and increasing growth.
