      Bank of Israel: NIS 15 Billion in Budget Cuts Needed

      Governor Stanley Fisher of the Bank of Israel said, Monday, that the next government will be asked to cut 15 billion shekels from the budget and raise taxes.

      Fisher said the government faces decisions similar to the ones in 2003, following an economic crisis.
