Some good news for an Arab town

Something positive to report. From Globes:

SanDisk opens R&D center in Israeli Arab town

The flash-storage company’s new center in Yafia is expected to hire dozens of employees from Haifa and Nazareth.

Concurrently with the deteriorating security situation, measures are being taken to include disadvantaged sectors in high tech and eradicate inequality. As part of its expansion, SanDisk Corporation’s (Nasdaq:SNDK) Israeli branch is opening a center in Yafia near Nazareth as a result of its strategic cooperation with outsourcing company Galil Software.

Good to know and see that the high tech world is not only about the traditional centers of such activity. I hope it goes well for them.

Get the details, here.
