The Director General of the Ministry of the Economy for Israel, Amit Lang, sees no reason why high-tech investments in Israel can't match the record pace the country saw last year, which totaled $3.4-billion. Lang sees no disruption in foreign investment flow following the elections, and points out that investors have not been shied away from Israel during recent military actions. He believes Israel's 'innovation economy' remains attractive. While Israel's economy remains healthy, Lang is working to engage groups who have not fully participated in its growth, including Arabs and Orthodox Jews.
