Over 600 business meetings annually facilitated between Palestinian businesspeople with Israeli companies, resulting in commercial deals valued at millions of shekels each year.

Palestinian Trade Transaction Costs

Project Aim

Map and quantify, through comprehensive field research, the transaction costs borne by the Palestinian private sector upon exporting to/via Israel.
Extensive field research will be translated into practical recommendations in order to influence, empower, and lead substantial change among decision makers and officials, as well as Palestinian and Israeli businesspeople.

How it Works

The two-year project aims to conduct an unprecedented survey of transaction costs facing the Palestinian private sector. This will be achieved through a field survey, analyses, and simulations using an innovative computer model. The data gathered will be processed and translated into practical recommendations for implementation in the business sphere. Ultimately, the project will quantify the mutual potential economic benefits for Israelis and Palestinians by reducing transaction costs and stimulating trade.
