Radio J on Steve’s show at 2.45pm. “Jack Ma and his unique relationship with Israel. His statements and his love for Israel’s high technologies…”.
Jack Ma, the founder of China’s e-commerce giant Alibaba Group, was reportedly seen in Israel recently. He told a conference in Tel Aviv that he had learned two things about Israel during his two visits to the country: innovation and “chutzpah” (the courage to change).
“In Israel, innovation, which is as ubiquitous as water and food, is very natural,” the business magnate and philanthropist told an audience of local and foreign tech entrepreneurs at the Israeli Prime Minister’s Innovation Summit. “Even if you have nothing, nothing is impossible if you have brain and heart.
“When knowledge – IQ – meets emotional intelligence – EQ, that’s called innovation, and Israel has all of that,” he said. “Israel knows that the most valuable resource in the world is not oil or gas, but the human brain. Israel innovates not only for itself, but for the whole world,” the billionaire continued.
“Most people innovate to succeed, but I see that Israel innovates to survive: you don’t have diamonds, but you have the largest diamond exchange in the world. You don’t make cars, but you have the best automotive technology in the world. You don’t have water, but I heard that you are one of the biggest exporters of fruits and vegetables in Europe. It’s amazing,” he said.
Israeli governments have a clear policy to develop economic relations with China in the areas of innovation, investment, projects and trade. Netanyahu, the architect of this relationship, defined China’s growing economy as a significant opportunity for Israel, and defined the startup’s innovation as an excellent match for the world’s technology, capital and market needs. China as a heavenly wedding.
Bibi Netanyahu describes his policy towards China in his memoirs. He says that, like most Western leaders, “I have walked a tightrope in Israel’s relations with China. On the one hand, the goal was to open the huge Chinese market to Israeli investors and at the same time to build Chinese investments in Israel, especially in public infrastructure.
On the other hand, I spoke openly with the Chinese about restrictions on military and intelligence technology that Israel could not share with Chinese companies.
