Bank of Israel on Kahlon Plan: Appropriate Steps

The Bank of Israel said, Thursday, that the series of measures announced by Finance Minister Kahlon on Tuesday are "worthy steps, and most of them are well integrated with the government's strategy to encourage employment, reduce poverty among workers and help young working families."

Responding on its website, the bank said, "At this stage, it is difficult to estimate the exact cost of the measures that were announced, since some of them are not yet accurately defined and are different from each other when it comes to the date of their coming into effect, their duration and the process required for their approval."
