World Bank: Palestinians will get poorer if roadblocks remain
12/13/2007
The World Bank on Thursday endorsed a Palestinian reform plan that requires $5.6 billion in international aid over three years, but warned that the money will not stem economic decline in the West Bank and Gaza unless Israel also eases Palestinian movement and trade. The Palestinians plan to ask for the aid at a conference of donor countries next week in Paris. The World Bank said the plan is "a process around which the Palestinian Authority, Israel and the donor community can coalesce."
