ABSTRACT
Israeli assets continued their climb last week, as the confidence-building measures which comprise the U.S.-sponsored "road map" to peace started to live up to their name. The latest developments saw Israeli and Palestinian Prime Ministers Ariel Sharon and Mahmoud Abbas attend a joint press conference, together with Israel's handover to Palestinian security forces of responsibility for the main thoroughfares in Gaza and the West Bank town of Bethlehem in Israel. Confirming just how badly Israel needs the boost to business sentiment, the continued under performance of the tax take.
