In a well publicized open letter  to the chairman of the ports authority, Mr. Shostak, director general of the Federation of Israeli Chambers of Commerce says that the port authority must take the initiative to stop port export fees subsidization.
 
The changeover to a new import / export tariff is not only an economic must but also an explicit request from the business community  in order to proceed towards an open & a more competitive logistics market, in the true sense of the word.
 
Mr. Shostak insisted that the period in which export fees were subsidized are over. Present government policies aim at the creation of an economy free of any discrimination.
 
In his letter to the chairman, Mr, Shostak pointed out that the higher the port fees are, the more expensive goods will be to the Israeli consumers who must cover, unwillingly, high  import terminal fees.
 
Mr. Dan Tichon , chairman of the port authority, replied explaining that a swift change in the port  tariff will create unnecessary difficulties and economic hardship therefore the change toward a new and more balanced tariff must be gradual,along a period of 10 years.
