( Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hosted Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in Jerusalem on Wednesday.

“Our two economies are highly complementary, and the mutually beneficial cooperation between us enjoys a very bright future,” said Wang, who was on a three-day visit to Israel.

Netanyahu said, “Our strengths complement one another. China has massive industrial and global reach. Israel has expertise in every area of high-tech. And I think the combination could be very, very beneficial to China and of course to Israel.” 

“We both value education and families,” added the prime minister. “We value knowledge and learning. We place importance on taking initiative and being entrepreneurial, something which both Israel and China have in great supply.”
