Ma’avar Erez

On November 23rd, 2015 David Simcha and Baruch Mazor of the IPCC together with Danny Catarivas of the Manufacturer’s Association of Israel, met at Ma’avar Erez on behalf of the Israeli Civil Administration. They met with around 40 businessmen in the Gaza textile industry along with business leaders from various non-governmental organizations in Gaza.

It was a groundbreaking meeting that opened up a lot of business opportunities for both the Israelis and Palestinians. The Palestinian group presented the different struggles they are faced with concerning importation.

The meeting overall had a very positive energy and marked the beginning of a long-term discussion. A follow-up meeting is to take place in three months where both sides will continue to discuss the struggles, and together the economists and businessmen will try to solve the obstacles they are faced with.
