( Israel continues as a global leader among countries registering for U.S. patents. Israeli companies have registered more than 3,500 patents in the U.S. in 2015, according to BDICoface, Israel's biggest business information group.

This figure represents an increase of about 21 percent  from 2013, and puts Israel in third place in the world for U.S.-registered patents, behind only Taiwan and Japan.

"The government must continue to nurture the issue through investment in technological education, improvement of infrastructure, and incentives for global hi-tech companies to carry on opening R&D centers in Israel," said Tehila Yanai, a managing partner at BDICoface, reported Yedioth Achronoth.
