Additional benefits for industry in Sderot and Gaza envelope approved

The Knesset Constitution Committee approved the amendment to the Mandatory Tenders [Preference for Israeli Products] Law, giving greater preference for manufacturers producing Israeli-made goods in Sderot and the Gaza envelope communities when competing against overseas suppliers in government tenders on Monday.

"The industrialists in the Sderot and Gaza envelope region are struggling with a complex, difficult daily reality. The benefits are aimed, among other things, at aiding manufacturers in Sderot and the Gaza envelope communities cope with the difficulties resulting from the security situation in the region, in the wake of Operation Protective Edge," stated Economy Minister Aryeh Deri.
