 Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon visited the New York Stock Exchange on Monday. As Kahlon finished his meetings in New York, he posted a video summarizing his trip on Twitter. 

He showed that the Israeli flag was hung outside and in the building of stock exchange in lower Manhattan to welcome the Israeli delegation. Israeli Securities Authority Anat Guetta is also expected to visit the stock exchange soon. 

"This is the strongest expression of confidence in Israel's economy," Kahlon said proudly to Israel Hayom.  "The understandings we reached are a message to the New York Stock Market and the hi-tech market, which is desperate for investment."
