The latest from Invest in Israel:
The world’s three largest rating agencies, Moody’s, Fitch, and Standard & Poor’s, in a vote of confidence in the Israeli economy, maintained a high credit rating for Israel at a time when the economy’s resilience was put to the test by both global financial pressures resulting from the credit crisis and geopolitical conflict. While Israel was not immune to the effects of the global credit crunch, as its main trading partners were hit by the crisis, the country’s sound macroeconomic fundamentals and strict fiscal policy served as a buffer to dampen the impact of financial wobbles.
As a consequence of the macroeconomic strategy that Israel had adopted during the last two decades, together with the relatively conservative approach that was undertaken by the Israeli banking sector and the regulation carried out by the supervisor of banks, the Israeli economy was relatively well prepared to confront the challenges of the global crisis, including the prospects for economic slowdown. Though the crisis continues to loom from nearby Europe and a consequential slowdown might reflect on Israel through its trade ties, Israel’s comparatively strong economic performance throughout the crisis vouches for its ability to continue to withstand any further financial pressures.
The Israeli policy of removing barriers to trade in goods and to open capital movements has served the economy extremely well. Israel is committed to openness as a strategic approach, while recognizing the importance of financial sector regulation. The adoption of this strategy contributed significantly to Israel’s economic growth and its increased economic efficiency.
