PM: More Competition on the Way


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said, Monday afternoon, that an interim report by a special committee on economic centralization in Israel was only the beginning on the road to more competition in the Israeli marketplace. Speaking at a news conference to mark the submission of the report to the government, Netanyahu said the Trajtenberg Committee on socioeconomic issues would introduce more competition.

The prime minister said the increase in fair competition should not hurt companies which provide jobs and other advantages to the economy. He said that businesses were not the enemy and government should not persecute them.
