      Knesset Finance Head Praises Fischer


      MK Moshe Gafni (Yahadut Hatorah), head of the Knesset’s Finance Committee, praised outgoing Bank of Israel head Stanley Fischer on Tuesday. Fischer played a large part in keeping Israel’s economy in relatively good condition despite the worldwide economic downturn, Gafni said.

      “I’m sorry that he is leaving,” Gafni said. “His contribution has undoubtedly been significant. But I respect his decision.”
