'Israelis could do half of port work'

About 50 percent of development work being planned for the ports could be done by domestic suppliers, the Manufacturers Association of Israel said Wednesday, in response to the Israel Ports Company's plans to invest some NIS 630 million in the ports in 2007.

About 50 percent of development work being planned for the ports could be done by domestic suppliers, the Manufacturers Association of Israel said Wednesday, in response to the Israel Ports Company's plans to invest some NIS 630 million in the ports in 2007. The association called on the government, Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz and the ports company to obligate winners in port works tenders to use domestic companies when possible, and estimated that this would create 600 new jobs for local industry. Projects included in the plan to develop the ports include the construction of Hayovel Port B at the Port of Ashdod and the completion of Carmel Port A in Haifa.
