The Palestinian Authority (PA) is hoping to attract $5,000 million of funds from the private sector with a new investment plan. The plan will be completed by the beginning of March and presented to potential investors at the Palestinian Development & Investment Conference in Bethlehem and Gaza in April. Ernst & Young is the consultant. ‘The main objective is to attract investors from the Gulf, the Palestinian diaspora, Europe, the US and South America,’ National Economy Minister Mazen Sinokrot told MEED on 21 January in Abu Dhabi at the beginning of an international roadshow to promote the scheme. ‘We are receiving an excellent message from investors. Palestine is a country in the making. There’s been interest from the UAE, Saudi Arabia, the US, Jordan and Palestinians abroad,’ Sinokrot said. ‘This conference will come at the right time, following the Palestinian Legislative Council and Israeli elections.’
