On a roadshow in New York City, Israeli Economy Minister Naftali Bennett told a packed boardroom of investors about the advantages of putting their capital to work in “The Lighthouse State.”

In a post on Facebook, Bennett said, “I just finished a meeting with top investors in New York. I described the great opportunity of investing in Israel, and the response was tremendous enthusiasm.”

Bennett said his presentation included some of the many opportunities in Israel open to foreign direct investment.

“Water technologies, agriculture, cyber security, medicine and more,” he said. “We discussed topics from developing the Negev to including Haredim in the workforce, Israeli Brain Technologies, 8200, Netafim, Waze, TakaDu, water desalination and natural gas.”
