Olmert presents new plan for fighting poverty

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert presented on Wednesday a new economic plan for fighting poverty. The aim of the plan is to get at least 115,000 people out of the poverty cycle within three years, Olmert said. "The key to reducing poverty is increasing growth," Olmert said at a press conference, at which he and Finance Minister Avhraham Hirchson presented the main points of the government's "social agenda" for 2008-2010.
