Israel Bilateral Agreements

Trade in agricultural products is covered by three bilateral agricultural agreements concluded between the EFTA State (Iceland, Norway and Switzerland) and Israel. These agreements are part of the instruments for the creation of the free trade area and are subject to the disciplines applicable to trade in goods in the main agreement. They provide for important concessions on both sides, taking into account the respective sensitivities. The United States-Israel Joint Committee (JC) is the central monitoring body for the free trade agreement. At its last meeting in February 2016, the JC discussed possible new joint efforts to increase bilateral trade and investment. In case of renewal of a contract, only one of the contracts between the same parties is counted. Depending on the situation, the counted treaty may be the old one if it remains in force until the ratification of the newly concluded IIA.
