Editor’s Note

Spring has arrived for many of us, not least for Palestine, where the hills of the West Bank are breaking out in ever more patches of green and lavender – as I saw on my trip there last week.

I’ll be writing about that and about some of the projects I visited in Jericho, Ramallah, Jerusalem and Jordan, thanks to JICA, the Japan International Co-operation Agency.

Other stories coming up this April include:

• The Jericho Agro-Industrial Park and its use of solar energy;

• The Palestine Stock Exchange and its IPO;

• The UK’s new ICT initiative;

• PalTrade’s plans to promote exports.

Last, but not least, we’ll be highlighting the progress of four world-class athletes from the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem as they prepare to fly the flag for Palestine at the Olympics here in London in July.

Thanks for looking!
