A report on foreign (direct and portfolio) investment in the West Bank and Gaza;
A survey of Palestine’s agricultural potential;
And, last but not least, we’ll be highlighting the progress of five Palestinian athletes from the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem as they prepare to fly the flag at the Olympics here in London at the end of July…PLUS a report on a very brave and determined man, Hussam Fares Azzam, a champion in world Paralympics…AND Palestine’s remarkable achievements in football (WOMEN and men!).
