Basics by Free Trade Agreement: Israel
Are Agricultural Products Covered by this Agreement?
Some agricultural products were covered by this Agreement, and in 1996 the United States and Israel concluded a separate Agreement on Trade in Agricultural Products. Designed to enhance market access for a number of additional American agricultural products, this Agreement established three categories of product coverage: (1) products free of tariffs; (2) products free of tariffs within certain quotas; and (3) products with preferential tariff rates.
Among the most important American agricultural exports that now enter Israel on a tariff-free, quota basis are: chilled and frozen beef, fresh and processed poultry, apples, grapes, pears, citrus, sunflower seeds, cheese and selected fresh and frozen vegetables. Under the agricultural accord, Israel also committed to the gradual reduction of these quotas.
