The article deals with the status of the high technology industry in Israel. Technology exports are now turning Israel from debtor to creditor. Its publicly financed research institutions now yield discoveries with considerable market potential. Early successes in computing software and more basic information technology have emboldened entrepreneurs and investors to move aggressively into clean technology and other areas. Israel's life sciences sector, long attractive to big medical device players and foreign venture capitalists, is finally attracting big pharmaceutical companies. European institutions have been investing in Israel for some time now. Investment dollars have also begun to flow from Asia.
