In meeting with settler leaders, minister boasts of NIS 40 million investment in West Bank tourism

In a meeting with settler leaders, Yariv Levin boasts of having invested NIS 40 million ($11.15 million) in West Bank tourism over his past three years as minister.

“Tourism in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) is at a point of tremendous momentum,” he tells leaders of the Yesha settlement umbrella council, highlighting the grants his office has given to hotels over the Green Line.

“We now have a window of opportunity to make big moves in the tourism industry and this is a time of desire that should definitely be exploited. We will continue to establish and bankroll activities in Judea and Samaria in addition to establishing facts on the ground,” adds Levin.
