As part of Asia pivot, Netanyahu pushes Israeli hi-tech in ChinaBy Yuval Ben-David and Michael Martina JERUSALEM/BEIJING (Reuters) – China’s economy may be 35 times larger than Israel’s, but Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is hoping to use that to advantage during a three-day visit to Beijing as he looks to reorient Israel’s economy towards Asia over Europe and the United States. A week after U.S. chip giant Intel agreed to buy Israeli technology firm Mobileye for $ 15.3 billion, Netanyahu wants to enlarge Israel’s high-tech presence in China while encouraging further Chinese investment in Israel, where infrastructure and construction projects are growing apace.
