Israeli Exports to U.S. Increased by 9 Percent in First Half of 2013

Exports dominated by three sectors: pharmaceuticals, chemicals and electronic components; Turkey now Israel’s third largest export market.

Exports to the United States, Israel's largest export market, totaled $5.4 billion in the first half this year, an increase of 9% over the same period last year, according to figures provided by the Israel Export and International Cooperation Institute. Pharmaceuticals were a major source of this growth, though exports still grew by 4% when pharmaceuticals are excluded.
