The first quarter of 2006 saw 1.2 percent more workers employed in industry than the same period last year as 4,200 people started jobs in the sector, the Israel Manufacturers Association said Sunday. The period also saw a rise in industry output, which rose 1.6%, with productivity up 1%. "These figures show that the current security situation should not cause investors to run away from Israel," said IMA president Shraga Brosh. "The [crisis in Gaza] will not cause cancellation of export orders either,"he added.
