Finance Minister Avigdor Lieberman will today convene the heads of the business sector for a special meeting to coordinate expectations ahead of the forthcoming formulation of the Arrangements Law. The expectations of the business sector from the incoming minister are enormous and concern all areas of activity.
This is part of a series of meetings held by the incoming minister with senior figures in the economy and in the field of economics. The meeting today will be attended by: President of the business organizations Dovi Amitai, President of the Chamber of Independent Organizations (LHB) Roi Cohen, President of the Chamber of Tax Advisors Yaron Gindi, President of the Hotels Association Amir Haik and President of the Craft and Industry Association Yossi Alkobi.
On the agenda are a number of issues that concern the business sector. The self-employed and small businesses are mainly bothered by the request to spread over another ten years the loan payments made during the corona period, amounting to NIS 16 billion, and a postponement of interest payments.
The Lahav, which enlisted the services of Dr. Ruby Nathanson, seeks to implement accelerated depreciation regulations, a reduction in business property taxes, unemployment benefits for the self-employed, and the operation of training tracks for the unemployed.
Amitai seeks, among other things, a freeze on regulation and the establishment of an advisory committee on this issue, accelerated investments in infrastructure, self-licensing reform in the Arrangements Law, and the concentration of all ministries dealing with professional training into one roof.
Haik will ask for continued point assistance to hotels, facilitations in recruiting workers for the industry, the abolition of VAT on an assistance grant of NIS 300 million from the Ministry of Tourism (which means that the state charges back NIS 50 million), and continued assistance for inbound tourism.
