Quoting Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the ambassador said that in the Silicon Valley, considered the global capital for start-ups, Hindi and Hebrew are heard more than English.

On the USA’s East Coast, Indians and Israelis already dominate the diamond business.

“If the people from India and Israel dominate the start-up space in Silicon Valley, why can’t they meet more often in New Delhi or Tel Aviv? I think start-ups provide great opportunities for people of both the countries who share common goals and aspirations,” he added.
