The UK greatly values our bilateral trade relationships with both Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

Although the focus of the UK-Israel Free Trade agreement is trade with Israel, we will continue to build upon our commercial links with the Occupied Palestinian Territories, including through the Trade Facilitation and Customs Support programme (Tasdeer). This is a 3-year, £15 million programme funded by UK ODA, seeking to improve trade performance In the Occupied Palestinian Territories with an integrated focus on gender and social inclusion, supporting inclusive growth.
