Socio-Economic Agenda, Israel 2008-2010

The National Economic Council in the Office of the Prime Minister published a policy agenda aimed at stimulating growth for the long-term while simultaneously reducing poverty.

The National Economic Council has proposed two long term goals:

  • To reduce poverty while encouraging growth
  • To create leverages for balanced, long-term growth

In pursuit of the first goal, the Agenda sets two policy targets:

  • An average annual reduction of 1% in the rate of poverty for the years 2008-2010
  • An average annual increase of 1% in the employment rate for the years 2008-2010
