Palestine Trade Center

Who We Are

About PalTrade

Palestine Trade Center (PalTrade) was established in 1998, as a non-profit, membership based organization with a national mandate to lead the development of exports as a driving force for sustainable economic growth. PalTrade advocates for a competitive, business-enabling environment and is dedicated to improving trade competitiveness.  PalTrade provides a wide range of export support services in the areas of export development, market intelligence, export promotion, export policy and advocacy.

PalTrade identifies, and brings, visibility to Palestinian exporters by unleashing their export potential to transform their businesses and accelerate prosperity within their communities. We identify deserving enterprises who exhibit high potentials in growth. We are committed to the materialization of their immense potential and their emergence as successful exporters through four main processes:

  1. PalTrade raises issues of concern through national and international public awareness campaigns.
  2. We cooperate and work with civil society, government and businesses to address trade impediment issues through a multi-stakeholder approach.
  3. We promote effective trade policies by connecting practitioners and policymakers.
  4. We provide services that help Palestinian companies assess their export readiness, build their capacity to export and identify new export markets.

By advocating for the implementation of business-enabling laws, increasing public awareness and supporting the sustainability of firm-level export capabilities, PalTrade contributes to the creation of a Palestinian businesses society where the potential for success is unlimited. Moreover, PalTrade provides support for businesses in terms of export promotion programs, trade missions, business-to-business meetings, and policy advocacy.

PalTrade adheres to a strict code of ethics and is a member of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) – Palestine.


A competitive, globally connected, export driven Palestinian economy.
