Israeli delegation in Tokyo for trade talks



Long reluctant to engage Israel because of fear of upsetting its Arab oil suppliers, or because of cultural differences, things have begun to change after Japan met the irresistible force of Israel’s technology success, said Vered Farber, director of the Asian Institute, an Israeli organization that has long been seeking to convince both Japanese and Israeli companies that there was much to be gained from working together.

“The Japanese finally realized that there is a Silicon Wadi in the Middle East that rivals California’s Silicon Valley, and they don’t want to get left behind,” Farber told the Times of Israel. “It took them awhile to realize it, but they have finally begun to understand that Israel may have what it takes to keep their economy dynamic and growing.”
