Intel expanding facilities in Israel
DailyTech is reporting
that Intel is planning to expand its existing R&D center in Haifa, Israel, which is already responsible for the highly successful Pentium M and Core Duo mobile chips. Intel purchased five acres of land to build the new facility, and it reportedly plans to hire 1,500 people to complement the 2,000 already employed at the existing center. This, together with Intel's recently
announced plans to open a technology center in the Gaza Strip, shows a strong commitment by the company to boost technology and economic development in the Middle East.
