Tel Aviv One of The World’s
Top High-Tech Centers


Newsweek deemed Tel Aviv one of the top ten capitals of the high technology industry worldwide. The nine other capitals include seven cities in the United States, Bangalore in India, and Cambridge in Great Britain.

According to Newsweek , Tel Aviv is flourishing as a technological center mainly as a result of immigration from the former Soviet Union, a high percentage of which were trained in the computer science field. The magazine also states that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) provides talent to the industry with youngsters who obtain knowledge and experience during their military service.

"Some say that of all the cities in the world, Tel Aviv is the most serious competitor to the Silicon Valley," Newsweek states.
