Economic Analysis

Economic Dialogue

The EU held its last Sub-Committee on Economic and Financial Matters with the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah in November 2014.

The European Commission presented the EU economic outlook based on the spring 2014 economic forecast. The Palestinian Authority presented recent macroeconomic developments and measures addressing ongoing economic challenges.

The meeting provided the opportunity to discuss:

  • the key fiscal reform challenges faced by the Palestinian authorities, including in the areas of expenditure reform, taxation and public finance management;
  • the work of the Palestinian Monetary Authority; and
  • the potential for developing the economic inter-linkages between Palestine and Israel.

The Sub-Committee also discussed the economic implications of the recent conflict in the Gaza Strip and of the reconciliation between the administrations of the Gaza Strip and the Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority.

The next meeting will take place in Brussels in autumn 2015 (to be confirmed).
