This is a particularly exciting day for me. Shipped the first crate for export back in the ’70s, my brother and I have been facing the challenges since his death. I love industry and am connected to it in my veins.
Israeli exports are the glory of our economy and carried the economy on its shoulders along with the entire industry during the Corona era. I am proud to head the institute, which is part of the critical infrastructure for strengthening exporters and pushing new manufacturers to improve competitiveness and go abroad.
We have exceptional opportunities to strengthen Israeli exports in the region, with markets that until a year ago seemed imaginary and to operate with innovative means adapted to the changing world.
Exports are now at a precedent-setting junction, and we face difficult challenges. Now in the face of competitors’ activity abroad and the weakening of the dollar and the euro, which undermine the foundations on which exports rest, both exports of goods and exports of services. It is not only the traditional industry that is dealing with the shortage of manpower, the rise in the price of raw materials and transportation in parallel with the addition, but also the high-tech industry is at a very sensitive and dangerous junction.
Upon taking office, we will be able to work together, the experienced and purposeful members of the institute, alongside the Minister of Economy and the Manufacturers Association, to develop and strengthen exports.
I thank the outgoing chairman Adiv Baruch for an important and significant service during a fascinating and challenging period on the other. “
