As part of a project to expand the Noam Industrial Park in the Negev, the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor on Sunday approved six factories to move to the area. The six operate in the food, metals and furniture industries, and will add approximately 373 workers to the park, which has been given national preference "A" status, allowing it various incentive schemes for businesses that move there. The project's aim is to bring 60 factories to the Negev with 4,000 employees in its first three years of the project.
