Finance Minister Congratulates Jacob Lew


Treasurer Yuval Steinitz sent a letter of congratulations to White House Chief of Staff Jacob Lew, Thursday, after President Barack Obama nominated Lew to be the next Treasury Secretary of the United States.

Dr. Steinitz said, "Jacob Lew has a deep connection with Israel and is one of two people who made it possible for Israel to be accepted as a member of the OECD," adding that "the economic ties between the U.S. and Israel have never been stronger."
