Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday held a discussion on the draft planning and construction law in order to move it forward during the Knesset's winter session.

Netanyahu said that "we will continue to advance the legislation on reforming the planning and construction process in order to finally alleviate the bureaucratic impediments that delay increasing the supply of land for construction and which provide constant incentives for corruption and the use of undue influence."

"Reforming the planning and construction process, along with reforms in the Israel Land Administration and in transportation, will add 1-2% per annum, over a decade, to our GNP.  This means that we will have resources for important national needs, especially for security and education," the prime minister continued.
