Just days before the US sponsored Bahrain conference, the White House released the first of a two-part Middle East peace plan, outlining the Trump administration’s “economic vision” for Palestinian Arab territories and neighboring Arab countries.
The highly anticipated proposal calls for a $50 billion investment in PA territories from private companies and donor countries to jump start local economies and boost conditions in Jordan, Egypt and Lebanon, which would each receive a portion of the funds.
The 40-page plan rests on three initiatives: 1) to “unleash the economic potential” of the Palestinians, 2) “empower the Palestinians to realize their ambitions,” and 3) “enhance Palestinian governance.”
The second part of the plan is meant to address the political implications of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and is expected to be released in the fall.
