Ziva Eger defends Israel’s IC policy – debunks think tank’s “conspiracy theories”
An Israeli think-tank has attacked the policies of Israel’s Industrial Cooperation Authority. Dr. Asher Meir, head of the economics department at the Kohelet Policy Forum, described the industrial cooperation policies as complicated, expensive, tending to disqualify many suppliers, and increasing contract costs. Ziva Eger, who heads the ICA, hit back. Israel’s policy is one of the most effective tools available to the government to leverage public spending, she said.
