Taking stock of Israeli ingenuity

AUSTRALIA is increasingly playing its part in Israel’s booming technological revolution, with the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) securing its 18th Israeli company listing in June, and continuing efforts to finalise a dual-listing arrangement with the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.
