Board of Deputies welcomes commitment to post-Brexit trade agreement between UK and Israel

Reacting to the announcement by Secretary of State for International Trade Dr Liam Fox and Israeli Economy and Industry minister Eli Cohen on Israel-UK trade, Senior Vice President of the Board of Deputies Sheila Gewolb said: “We welcome this commitment to ensuring that trade between Israel and the UK runs smoothly after Brexit and the  aspiration of the two governments for an even more ambitious agreement in future.

“We are pleased that Ministers have heeded the community’s call, as laid out in the joint Board-JLC pamphlet Brexit and the Jewish community pamphlet, to build on the increasing level of trade between the two countries. We have since followed up to make the case to the UK and Israeli  governments at the highest level.”
