Amid last-minute objections and protests from government ministers and haggling with Treasury officials, the cabinet approved the 2019 state budget Friday morning.

Speaking Thursday at the Globes Israel Business Conference in Jerusalem, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the budget would contribute to Israel’s above-OECD-average economic growth, with predictions for 3.5% GDP growth next year.
