Orange CEO Stephane Richard, the same one who said in Egypt yesterday that he wishes he could ditch Israel’s Partner mobile firm from his company, said only four years ago how much he was “enchanted” during his first visit here.
In the video in English below, Richard says in his remarks at the President’s Conference in Jerusalem in 2012:
This really is the first time I have participated in this conference, and this is also my first visit to Israel (applause).
I must tell you I had been told that Israel is a very warm country in many sense of the word and also is a place for innovation and with a vision of the future, with a lot of dynamic energy.
I must tell you that I have discovered this reality with a lot of excitement. This is only my first visit but I really am fascinated by what I see here in this country, of course in my industry and in all the people I have met.
That was in 2012.
