And they’re doing it in their spare time.

Apple has reportedly backed off of its plan to open a store in New York’s Grand Central Terminal, but that doesn’t mean the company doesn’t have retail expansion on its mind.

Program aimed at providing State with technical assistance in field of telecommunications
A European Union ‘twinning’ project to provide Israel with technical assistance in the field of telecommunications was launched at an international conference at Jerusalem’s Mishkenot Sha’ananim neighborhood on Monday, in the presence of Communications Minister Moshe Kahlon.
“Twinning” projects are one of the tools that the European Union employs in the framework of its European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP). A twinning project consists of sending a resident advisor from an EU member state (supported by other advisors on shorter term missions) to a partner country for at least one year.
The telecom twinning project is called “Assist the Israeli Telecommunications regulator to establish greater approximation to the European Union regulatory approach, specifically with wholesale markets.”
It is being conducted by the Israeli Ministry of Communications with the cooperation of the German Federal Network Agency, the Italian Authority for Communications, and the Telecommunications Market Commission of Spain.
The Resident Twinning Advisor will be Ms. Yvonne Groesch of the German Federal Network Agency’s department International Policy Issues and Regulatory Strategies, who has vast experience in advising public authorities on regulatory reform and sector specific regulation.
The launch of the project was also attended by Ambassador Andrew Standley, head of the Delegation of the European Union to Israel, the Ambassador of Spain Alvaro Iranzo Gutierrez, the directors of the National Regulatory Agencies of Germany, Italy and Spain, and other guests.
