In recent years, the government of Israel has been making unprecedented investments to enhance economic development for the Arab minority (20.6% of Israel's citizens) and harness its potential to become Israel's next engine for growth . Last week the largest ever government plan to advance economic development in the Arab sector was approved, allocating approximately NIS 15 billion for the development of Arab society and closing socio-economic gaps between Jews and Arab in Israel.

This presentation by Mr. Aiman Saif, General Director, Authority for Economic Development of the Arab Sector, Government of Israel, provides the most current updates on the government's investments and approach to these issues, the latest assessments of recent progress and challenges ahead, and discusses existing programs as well as future government plans in this area.
