JERUSALEM (Jul. 11)
Israeli authorities have agreed to offer export incentives to Arab traders in all Israel-occupied territories, including the Gaza Strip. The incentives will be identical to the premiums earned by Israeli exporters. Earnings in foreign currency, which entitle exporters to premiums, will include Jordanian dinars paid for exports to the East Bank. Like other foreign currencies, the dinars will have to be converted into Israeli pounds to qualify for the premiums.
