Steinitz Does Not Intend to Quit as Finance Minister

Associates of Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz say he does not intend to quit, in spite of Monday's decision by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to maintain the exemption from value-added tax for produce and services to foreign tourists.

While the treasurer was bitter about the decision, the associates noted that the framework of the 2009-2010 budget would not be broken by it.
