Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Secretary General Angel Gurria attended Sunday's weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu praised Gurria for his efforts in getting Israel accepted into the OECD.
Netanyahu stated that Israel's admittance into the organization of the most advanced economies in the world came as the result of many difficult reforms.
The prime minister added that, in the future, he hoped to see Israel free itself from dependence on world markets by developing growth engines that are not connected to exports, such as the construction and real estate markets in Israel.
