The latest figures from Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics – covering the first 10 months of 2014 – show bilateral trade at a record 3.16 billion pounds, with exports from Israel to the UK up 14% and Israeli imports from Britain up 13%. Previous figures for the period showed trade worth 2.5 billion pounds.
