The city of Jerusalem is planning a new business district at the entrance to the capital, Mayor Nir Barkat announced to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu this week. The project is expected to create “thousands of new jobs” for city residents, Barkat said.

The two men and their wives toured the city Sunday evening (July 19) on the Jerusalem Light Rail to discuss the project as well as plans for additional routes on the Light Rail.
