The two leaders are attending the 2014 World Economic Forum meeting at which PM Netanyahu will deliver a speech on “Israel – Innovation Nation”.

Netanyahu is scheduled to meet the president of  Yahoo and senior executives of  Google.

Before living for the Swiss resort, Netanyahu said: “Israel is an exception on the Western economic scene. We have succeeded in dealing with the global economic crisis better than almost all Western countries. But we cannot rest on our laurels. We need to develop new markets and new partners and this is my goal in going to Davos. My intention is to talk with leading global high-tech companies, in the cyber and other fields, in order to tell them to come to Israel, invest in Israel and create jobs in Israel. This will be good for them and good for us as well.”

President Shimon Peres will also attend the conference.  During his visit President Peres will conduct an intensive round of meetings including with the President of Azerbaijan, the President of CISCO, the Chairperson of Yandex, the President of Philips, the President of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the Chairperson of Huawei, the CEO of Goldman Sachs, the Chairperson of JP Morgan, the President of Harvard, Chairperson of Bloomberg, CEO and Chairperson of Salesforce, heads of start-ups and more.

    Don’t tell me it isn’t an attempt to undermine the prime minister hoping for eventually if not his old job back, then a place on the front bench.
    A fools hope eternal, he had his chance and blew it.
