The Secretary of State for International Trade visited Israel last month and, together with the Israeli Minister of Economy and Industry, signed an agreement to ensure continuity in our trade and investment relationship as we leave the EU. Securing continuity is the strongest foundation on which to build further on our successful trading relationship.

The UK and Israel have an important trading relationship, which we are committed to strengthening through our dedicated trade promotion team at our Embassy in Israel. To this end we continue to liaise with the Israeli government on maximising future trade opportunities.
