Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in Switzerland for the World Economic Forum in Davos, where he plans to present on the Israeli economy, focusing on Israel’s leadership in the high-technology and cyber-technology fields.
During his time in Davos, the prime minister will meet with numerous political and economic leaders, including US Vice President Joe Biden, US Secretary of State John Kerry, Argentine President Mauricio Macri, and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte.
Netanyahu’s office said in a statement, “The prime minister will hold a unique meeting with global cyber industry senior figures and managing directors—including Eugene Kaspersky—on advancing cyber-defense. Participants will discuss cyber threats to information and physical systems and their implications on the development and assimilation of innovative technologies, and evaluate the economic, social, and strategic risks posed by these threats. They will also consider the unique cooperation required between governments and the business sector in order to be prepared to ensure the ability to use the cyber revolution for the benefit of global social welfare and economic growth.”
