What exactly do the “Palestinians” produce, besides jihad propaganda kitsch? And isn’t the multibillion dollar aid package enough? Or if they are engaging in trade, is the multibillion dollar aid package ultimately needed?
“PNA: EU To Help Palestinian Trade With Arab Countries,” from ANSAmed (thanks to Insubria):
(ANSAmed) – BRUSSELS, DECEMBER 19 – The European Commission has signed an agreement with the Palestine Trade Centre (PalTrade) and the Palestinian Shippers’ Council (PSC), to help promote Palestinian trade with neighbouring Arab countries and improve market access for Palestinian products. The project, which is worth 432.614 euro, will last for 17 months. The first phase of the project will involve comprehensive research and identification of the improvements for existing trade corridors into Egypt and Jordan. The private sector will be heavily involved in this research phase, providing in-depth analysis of the current situation, and recommendations for the future. The second component of the project will focus on engaging the Palestinian and Israeli public sectors, as well as officials in third countries (Jordan, Egypt), to promote policies and measures that will help to facilitate trade. The project will also produce an Export Information Guide on trade logistics for the use of Palestinian exporters. In addition, it will provide logistical cost analysis on importing from Egypt and Jordan.(ANSAmed).
