WTO Praises Israel for Economy

Israel won praise for its trade policies, last week, from members of the World Trade Organization during the WTO's six-year evaluation of the state's economic policy.

Israel was cited for the strength of the economy and the successful way in which it dealt with the global financial crisis. WTO members stressed the fact that Israel did not need a special aid plan for its banking sector.
