PM Netanyahu Meets with Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer
(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser)

Prime Minister Netanyahu, this morning (Monday, 5 November 2012), met with
Microsoft Chief Executive Officer Steve Ballmer
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/news/exec/steve/default.aspx
They discussed Microsoft's commitment to Israel, its vast investments in the
local market and the impact it is having, driving economic growth through
national level activity and programs focused on innovation economy,
employability, education and more.

Prime Minister Netanyahu said, "The combination of the State of Israel and
Microsoft is natural since the Israeli high-tech industry is among the
world's leaders. Microsoft was wise enough to see its potential many years
ago and to benefit from the quality personnel in Israel. Our investment in
high-tech industries and in training people for high-tech will continue to
succeed and bear fruit. I believe that cooperation between the State of
Israel and Microsoft will continue for many years."

Microsoft CEO Ballmer said, "This is my fourth visit to Israel and I am
always excited and inspired by the sheer technological ingenuity of its
people and entrepreneurs, a key reason why itís such an important market for
Microsoft. Since the early 90's we have made significant investments in
localizing products in Hebrew, providing support and investment for various
Israeli companies and partners and, of course, growing our strategic R&D
presence."
