Israel’s economy continues to perform well both in terms of macroeconomic and fiscal outcomes. Growth has averaged 3.3% since 2000, higher than in many OECD countries, although this was partly driven by strong population growth, which accounted for half of this impressive increase. The external surplus is comfortable, and the public debt-to-GDP ratio, already well below the OECD average, is still falling.
