Israel Shipping Report Q1 2016

BMI View: We expect positive growth across the three primary Israeli ports in 2016 - Ashdod, Haifa andEilat - as Israel enjoys accelerating economic growth. Crucially, the drivers of this growth will be key insupporting an expansion in port container volumes. Private consumption and exports will increasefollowing a slump in Q215, supporting box traffic in both directions through the facilities. Unemploymentwill remain low, boosting domestic consumer demand, while a relatively upbeat outlook for the eurozone incomparison to recent years, and a resurgent US economy, will support exports.
