Who We Are

We facilitate and catalyse initiatives to build quality employment and a thriving private sector and society in Palestine. Portland Israel is developing an infrastructure that successfully integrates tech professionals from the Arab and other minority, social and geographical periphery into the tech industry.

Our Role

Despite the many obstacles and restrictions, Portland remains deeply committed to strong economic development in Palestine.

Our role is both strategic, with the new “Blueprint for Palestine” private sector economic strategy, and impactful on the ground, including IT programmes helping train up and internationally connect hundreds of computer programmers in Palestine, such as TAP and the UK-Palestinian Tech Hub. The Trust also publishes the authoritative Palestine Economic Bulletin.
