Israeli and Palestinian Authority Cabinet ministers are meeting for the first time since Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu took office in March. The talks between Vice Prime Minister Silvan Shalom and Palestinian Authority Economic Minister Bassem Khoury are focused on economic proposals to improve life for the Palestinians. The men are meeting at a Jerusalem hotel. Officials say the agenda includes proposals to ease restrictions on the entry of Palestinian businesspeople and VIPs to Israel. They also want to boost Israeli meat exports to the West Bank and dairy imports from the West Bank to Israel and increase medical treatment for Palestinians in Israel. They also are to discuss joint industrial parks meant to further what Netanyahu has termed an "economic peace."
