    Bilateral trade between Jan & Aug hits record R44,2 bil. £1,6-bil in Israeli exports to UK (up 38%) & £957 mil in UK exports to Israel. Vivian Wineman, president of the British Board of Deputies, said: “This is a wonderful piece of news that shows that attempts by the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement to discredit Israel are failing. We are all better off - particularly Israelis and Palestinians - when there is strong trade between the UK and Israel, because it leads to tremendous economic growth, innovation and, most crucially, more jobs for all.”
