Addressing the India-Israel Business Summit at the iconic Taj hotel, Netanyahu said,''future belongs to those who innovate. Our job is to encourage you to innovate. The partnership between India & Israel is doing wonders. I have a strong personal friendship with PM Modi.''
On the partnership between Israel and India, Netanyahu says, "It is on the level first of a deep personal friendship between Prime Minister Modi and myself... In addition, there is a partnership of genuine sympathy between our people. And that is not obvious. Our two civilisations are very old and we have not met each other in real sense..."
''Israel is an innovation nation, India is an innovation nation. The two innovation nations must come together to define the future,'' said Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu at India-Israel Business Summit.
''I also visited iCreate, an impressive hub where brilliant young minds come to solve problems. I was particularly impressed with a 14-year-old boy. This was slumdog millionaire. He produces drone which goes up the sky and identifies landmines, it'll save lives,'' Netanyahu said.
Netanyahu landed at the airport in Mumbai on Wednesday night for the Mumbai leg of his six-day India visit.
He will have a 'power breakfast' with select business personalities, including Anand Mahindra, Ajay Piramal, Adi Godrej, and Chanda Kochhar.
This will be followed by a wreath-laying ceremony for 26/11 Mumbai terror attack victims.
Netanyahu will then proceed to the nearby Nariman House, where he will meet 11-year-old Moshe Holtzberg. Netanyahu will cap his hectic schedule by attending the 'Shalom Bollywood' event, also at the Taj Hotel.
