Minister Fayot visited the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT) from 5 to 8 September 2022. The mission mainly covered humanitarian projects supported by the Luxembourg Development Cooperation while giving an overview of the development aspect and allowing a meeting with the Palestinian Authority. The planned meeting with the Israeli Authority could not take place due to diary conflicts. The visits and meetings were in the following regions and cities: East Jerusalem, Area C (Abu Nawar), Bethlehem, Hebron and Ramallah.
The mission allowed Minister Fayot to see first-hand the many overlapping challenges, rooted in prolonged social and political instability and amplified by global economic, environmental and health shocks.
