Who We Are

The Growth Administration is the executive body for the implementation of the national program for economic growth of the Ministry of Economy.

The administration was established as collaboration between the Ministry of Economy and Industry and Joint Tevet with the goal of accelerating economic growth in Israel over the coming years. The conceptual basis for this initative is to put into action the competitive clusters model by Prof. Michael Porter of Harvard University, which has been successfully implemented around the world and achieved great results.

The administration works to formulate and apply a growth policy through partnership between the business sector, the various government ministries, the academy and all the players in the ecosystem.

The National Program for Economic Growth

The Ministry of Economy and Industry is launching the national program for economic growth as part of the development of the economic vision for the State of Israel. 

From a concept of give-and-take relations between two parties, to a concept of leadership by the business sector and full harnessing of the government to support and assist according to the specific needs of the economic activities in which the market specializes in.

The program is based on the theory of competitive clusters, according to the Porter model, which has proven very successful in many different regions of the world and aims to accelerate the growth of the Israeli economy.
