On the other hand, the general assembly of the Arab Palestinian Investment Company APIC held a meeting on 19/09/2018, whereby, approved acquiring 50% of the Medical Supplies and Services Co. MSS, to become the fully owner of the company. This will happen through a strategic deal to acquire the stake of Mr. Walid Kayyali through a private placement of 7.00 million shares of $2.15 per share. Therefore, this will raise APIC'S paid-up capital from $75 million to $82 million. On the other hand and according to the expectations, the third quarter financial data disclosures for the listed companies are the most important anticipation for the investors in Palestine Stock Market PEX with their different types. Whereby, the long term investors may formulate a very clear vision about their annual return due to these disclosures, while speculators will follow any price wave that results from the financial disclosure.

In another context, the World Bank announced a new report about “Enhancing Job Opportunities for Skilled Women in the Palestinian territories”, which reported that The Palestinian territories suffer from limited job creation with stubbornly high unemployment rate, hitting particularly the youth and women. A striking feature of the labor market is the significantly higher rate of unemployment among skilled women (47%) relative to skilled men (18%), despite entering the labor force in comparable numbers and facing same constraining environment. Furthermore, high-skilled women are more likely to be unemployed than low-skilled women. Moreover, the report mentioned that skilled women make up the bulk of the Palestinian female labor force. If employment barriers are reduced, and women have more access to jobs, the results on welfare and stability in a fragile context will be reflected in better living conditions for the Palestinian households, and for the Palestinian economy.
