In the end, Shohat and Rabin ignored the committees' findings, and the FEPZ emerged from the Knesset virtually unchanged from the original proposal.
In the case of the Israeli FEPZ, not only did capital actively seek out a business-friendly environment, it actively worked to create one.
MK Gedalya Gal (Labor) added, "If it succeeds, if there is growth and new jobs, then we can consider widening the FEPZ to include the entire country.
The clamor to join an FEPZ will come from anyone who could benefit from deregulation, no taxes, and no customs.
For now, Yerushalmi's energies are focused on winning concession rights in Israel's FEPZ.
