Economic conference in Gaza to encourage investment

June 7, 2014 12:37 P.M. (Updated: June 8, 2014 10:38 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- An economic conference is slated to be held in the Gaza Strip in November, one of the conference's organizers said Friday.

Palestinian businessman Munib al-Masri told Ma'an that the main goal of the conference would be to encourage entrepreneurs from Palestine and other Arab countries to invest in projects in the Gaza Strip.

The conference's conveners will seek to develop electricity, water, and telecommunications networks in Gaza, al-Masri said.

"We want to implement the will of the late Palestinian president Yasser Arafat, who wanted Gaza to be the Singapore of the Mediterranean," he told Ma'an.
