The eighth Bilateral Economic Dialogue between the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs took place in Jerusalem on Thursday. Both sides raised ideas for cooperation in a number of fields.

The dialogue began with a meeting between M.F.A Director General Yossi Gal, and the Turkish Deputy Undersecretary in charge of Economic Affairs, H.Akil. Both expressed their strong support for enhancing and strengthening bilateral trade and economic relations between the two countries, and called upon the business communities in both countries to engage in active cooperation.

Alongside screening general economic indicators representing the trade and economic relationship between Israel and Turkey, both sides raised various ideas for cooperation in the health sector, agriculture and between the respective customs authorities. Possibilities of cooperation in the field of finance were raised as well.

In the near future, Israel and Turkey will explore ways to realize these programs and further strengthen their economic relationship.

Both sides agreed to hold the next bilateral discussion in Ankara in 2011.
