New bill prefers local textile firms over foreign ones
Dec '10
A bill newly presented by Knesset member Shelly Yacimovich, contains a proposal under which the Israeli textile firms would be given preference in the bids for manufacturing goods for large defence systems, even when the tender price quoted by them is 50 percent more than the least offer price quoted by their international counterparts.

The bill contains a proposal of giving a preferential treatment to the Israeli textile firms in emerging security forces and the Interior Ministry's tenders for procurement of products for the police, IDF and prison services.

The bill is likely to get the final assent from the Knesset over the next few days. Once the bill is passed, the domestic textile firms would earn a preferential treatment in the bids for various products such as defence uniforms, fabrics and other items prepared from fabrics like tents, etc.

Yachimovich, while stressing on this new legislation, said that it would not only serve the purpose of securing jobs of a large number of factory workers, but may even lead to generation of new employment opportunities.

She, while emphasizing on the national facet of the bill, said that police personnel, soldiers and prison guards in the country would no more be required to put on China-made uniforms, as they would get to wear the uniforms that are exclusively made in Israel.
