Foreign Investment in Israel Skyrocketed in Past Two Years Despite Boycott-Jews (BDS) Movement

11

Israel is a miracle country. A bright light in a dark region. Despite the regular attacks from the BDS Movement, the United Nations, academia, the mainstream media, and the neo-Nazi Democrats, Israel continues to thrive and prosper as never before. Israel’s continued ascension is a testament to the indomitable spirit of the Israeli people. Am Yisrael Chai!

Foreign Investment in Israel Skyrocketed in Past Two Years, United With Israel, JNS.ORG, April 8, 2019. 

A Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) report released Sunday reveals that foreign investments in Israel totaled $129.1 billion for 2017, a 20.2 percent increase compared to 2016 and 30 percent higher than 2015, which saw foreign investment of under $100 billion.

The CBS figures covered investments by foreign residents or companies who bought more than a 10 percent stock share in Israeli companies.

In 2017, 60.4 percent of foreign investment went to the fields of trade and services. The remaining investment was divided between high-tech (32.6 percent), industry (28.3 percent) and advanced technologies (15.8 percent).

The greatest amount of investment by foreign residents came from the United States ($21.1 billion), followed by the Netherlands, the Cayman Islands, Canada, China, Luxembourg, Singapore and Switzerland.

Israelis abroad were also investing more outside of Israel.
