UK-Israel Trade Thriving Despite Talk of Boycotts – Herb Keinon (Jerusalem Post)
Britain, which has emerged as a center of BDS activity against Israel, was in 2014 the third largest market for Israeli exports in the world, following the U.S. and Hong Kong.
According to the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics, the two countries conducted $6.3b. worth of trade in 2014, with almost $4b. in Israeli exports to the UK.
“We have seen roughly a doubling of imports of Israeli goods” since 2009, British Ambassador to Israel David Quarrey said on Wednesday.
He added that in 2014 more Israeli companies were listed on the London Stock Exchange than any other foreign country.
