Environment Minister Gideon Ezra told the Manufacturers Association of Israel he would initiate a government fund to help small and medium-sized factories meet environmental standards without suffering economic damages, the association said Sunday. Ezra and the industrialists agreed that the fund would provide NIS 50 million in assistance to factories in Israel's economically disadvantaged "periphery" regions. Ezra also said his ministry would grant factories in the North leeway in matters related to environmental permits and extensions during the crisis period, the association said.
