Official: PA to implement 3-year economic plan

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Authority has prepared a 3-year plan to develop the national economy, the economic adviser to President Mahmoud Abbas said Monday.

Mohammad Mustafa said the plan includes projects to build electricity generators, and to use natural resources -- particularly water and gas -- to reduce the cost of industrial production.

It also focuses on supporting the agricultural sector, as well as tourism, Mustafa added.

Mustafa's comments were made during a visit to Hebron, where he was welcomed by Hebron governor Kamel Hmeid, Hebron mayor Daoud Zaatari and the director of Hebron's Chamber of Commerce and Industry Mohammed Hirbawi.

Mustafa visited the Ibrahimi mosque in Hebron's old city and said the holy site would remain Palestinian and Islamic despite Israeli restrictions.
