Israel's exports to Latin America up 13%

Israel's exports to Latin America increased by 13 percent between January and September 2007 compared to the same period in 2006 and totaled $930 million, the Israel Export and International Cooperation Institutes reported Sunday. "The increase in exports was influenced by the rapid growth in the Brazilian and Argentinian economies (4.7% and 8%, respectively) in 2007," chairman of the council's board of directors, David Artzi, said.
