The change in aid and trade in that time has been massive
- Aid has reduced from $3.7b to $2.3b
- Services trade has gone from $1.0b to $7.5b
- Goods trade has gone from $2.4b to $44.2b
The US used to supply more in aid, than trade to Israel. Now their trade is more than 20 times greater than their aid.
Europe and the US should drop their trade barriers so that we have more trade, and less need for aid.
