Peretz, Shalom pledge to improve quality of life

March 20th

With the swearing in of the new government, Gilad Erdan has stepped down from his position as Environmental Protection Minister. We welcome Amir Peretz who will be taking his place. When leaving, Erdan stated " This ministry changed me,” said outgoing Environmental Protection Minister Gilad Erdan, who is now the communications and homefront security minister. “I understand much better today what is best for the state of Israel and its people.” 

“Today environmental considerations are an integral part of the decision-making in the economy and in the government,” Erdan said. “It is already clear to everyone that Israel cannot lag behind the international market, which has already learned that a correct economy is a green economy that ensures that everyone will live and benefit from a good and healthier environment.”
