Israel Shipping Report Q2 2015

We expect moderate growth across Israel's ports in 2015, which will benefit from the base effects of arebound in economic growth following disruption caused by the conflict in 2014. The port of Haifa willreturn to growth following two years of decline in its container throughput. The Israeli ports sector isundergoing a state of flux, with the major ports set to be expanded with new, privately operated, terminals,which will be able to handle the larger vessels that are becoming the norm on the key Asia-Europe traderoute on which Israel stands. However, these developments face strong opposition from current portworkers and unions, which is impacting throughput.
