Chinese investments in Israel's high-tech sector
have reached one third of Israel's total, as Chinese
companies look to Israel for investments
in emerging technologies. Israeli Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu recently said, at a meeting
with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, that Israel
and China could explore "many ways of technological cooperation." During his March visit
to China, Netanyahu met with the heads of major
Chinese companies, including, Alibaba, Baidu,
Lenovo, Wahaha and Wanda. Netanyahu said,
"Israel is open for business with China."

Microsoft has entered
a partnership with
state-owned China
Electronics Technology
Group Corporation
(CETC) and plans to
release a new version of
the Windows 10 operating system for use in
government. CETC -
traditionally known for
developing software
for Chinese government
and military - owns
a 51 percent stake
in the joint venture,
C&M Information
Technology Co. Ltd.
