Orange CEO says his company plans to invest more in Israel

Less than two weeks after saying in Cairo that Orange would immediately cut its licensing agreement with Israel’s Partner Communications if it were not financially prohibitive to do so, the company’s CEO came to Jerusalem Friday, apologized again for his comments, and said his company wanted to keep investing here.

Stephane Richard, who unleashed a storm of criticism with his Cairo comments which he said later were misinterpreted, said at the start of his meeting Friday with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Orange is in the business of communication, of connecting people, “certainly not to participate in any kind of boycott.”
