Commerce in Israel during Operation "Guardian of the Walls"
Due to increasing rocket attacks on Israel from the Gaza Strip, the government of Israel ordered the Israeli Defense Forces to operate in order to put a stop to the constant threat on Israel's citizens.
The operation, named "Guardian of the Walls", has commenced on May 10th 2021 and aims against the Hamas terrorist group acting from Gaza.
Over the last weeks hundreds of rockets have been fired at cities and places in Israel. The protective Iron Dome Battery has so far successfully
intercepted most of the rockets.
As of today, despite the disruptive situation, Israel's commerce and trade is continuing as usual and the government has not declared a national
state of emergency. We managed to come out of the Covid-19 crisis fast, and our economy is strong. Israel's market has been and is still one of the most stable, most robust, and liberal markets globally.
Israel has played a pivotal role on the world's stage in tech and innovation, from healthcare and renewable energy to food security and AI; Israel's entrepreneurs help solve tomorrow's problems.
We will continue to develop and enhance Israel's foreign trade and friendly economic relationships with the world, and we welcome you to keep an open discussion with us on what is going on in the region and how we can work together to make things better for years to come.
