EU-Israel trade reaches record figures

In recent years, Israeli exports to the EU have reached a historical high of 34% and EU imports to Israel are almost 40% of Israel’s total imports. The figures were released by the EU delegation in Tel Aviv at a recent seminar on doing business with the EU.

The seminar was aimed at Israeli importers and exporters interested in further expanding their activities into the EU, traditionally the first export market for Israeli companies. A new on-line Help Desk facilitating trade and Investment between the EU and Israel, and supported by the European Commission, was launched at the event.

“The EU is not only the world’s largest internal market, but is also the closest market to Israel,” said Emanuele Giaufret, EU Ambassador to Israel, at the seminar. “We provide one of the best business environments and with Israel’s innovative and thriving economy, this exemplifies the unique partnership that the EU and Israel has.”

The Help Desk will establish a contact point within the Israeli ministry of economy and industry.
