Israel and China on Thursday agreed to establish a joint committee that will be tasked with formulating a five-year plan on bilateral trade relations.

Industry, Trade and Labor Ministry director-general Sharon Kedmi and Chinese Deputy Minister of Commerce Jiang Yaoping confirmed the committee’s creation during a meeting in Beijing. The two also discussed the feasibility of establishing a free-trade agreement.
