Calls for Transparency on Natural Gas Sales


Israel's new natural gas reserves could bring in substantial revenues. The official announcement on Wednesday has several officials calling for transparency to ensure the public knows what's being sold, to whom and where the destination of the revenue. Chairman of the Knesset Finance MK Prof. Avishay Braverman stated, "the decision on gas exports should be transparent and up for public debate in the Israeli Knesset. The government is going to make one of the more important economic decisions in years without having very much public support."
