Jerusalem conference to discuss investment in Israeli and Palestinian economiesBinyamin Netanyahu, Israel’s Prime Minister designate, is to open the STEP Jerusalem Wealth Management Conference on March 25 with a speech that is expected to launch his program for economic peace.
The conference, which is to take place in the David Citadel Hotel, will discuss many of the issues faced today by individuals, families and companies wishing to invest in the Israeli and Palestinian economies. Speakers will include representatives of the Bank of Israel, Ministry of Trade, the International Monetary Fund, the Association of Banks in Palestine, the US Embassy, the new Israel-Palestinian Chamber of Commerce, and the PalTel Group. Attendees are expected to include investors and international institutions.
The event is being hosted by STEP and organized by Fortress Capital Management. “We believe that this event will provide unparalleled opportunities to look beyond divisive politics and instead explore exciting commercial and financial ventures which are of economic benefit to all,” said Dylan Shub, Fortress Capital’s Middle East chairman.
