היי טק בישראל
hay tek be-yis-ra-el
High Tech in Israel
Silicon Wadi (סיליקון ואדי) is an area near Tel Aviv, with many high tech companies second only to Silicon Valley in California. Israel has advanced technologies, software and electronics because of emphasis on higher education and research and development. The government encourages the industry by providing low-rate loans. Many international technology companies have research and development facilities in Israel such as: Intel, IBM, Google, Hewlett-Packard, Cisco, Oracle, Microsoft, and Motorola. The Economist considered Silicon Wadi in 2007 to be second only to Silicon Valley with new start-ups that numbered more than 3,000 in 2006 alone.
