Fischer: No risk of recession
Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer told the Knesset Finance Committee that the Israeli economy is not in risk of a recession, clarifying that his decision to lower interest rates stemmed from a desire to foster demand in the market and influence the exchange rate.

 

Nonetheless, he pointed to two problems the next government will have to face - the expected budgetary deficit and the housing situation. (Zvi Lavi)
