The FTA was the U.S.’s first bilateral free trade agreement and Israel’s second (following Israel’s free trade agreement with the European Community, which was signed in ). The Agreement entered into force in September after it was approved by the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote and by a voice vote in the U.S. Senate.
