We regularly raise our concerns about Gaza, including on movement and access issues, with the Government of Israel.

We will continue to work with the quartet representative, the Government of Israel and the Palestinian Authority to reopen Gaza for business. We believe that a strong economy in the Occupied Territories is key to promoting peace, stability and prosperity.
