Space technology will have a major focus in the Science and Technology Ministry, said Minister Yaakov Peri, taking over from Prof. Daniel Herschkowitz on Tuesday.

Peri said he would work to ensure that innovation, space research, cyber, science and technology "will continue to be at the forefront of Israel’s achievements."

Israel Space Agency chairman Yitzhak Ben-Yisrael welcomed the new minister and said there is "no need to explain to me who headed the General Security Services" -- as Peri did for years -- how much security is dependent on science and technology. "I am sure he will lead the ministry to many successes," he said.
