Economic commentators predicted a land of plenty in the Middle East after the 1993 signing of a peace treaty on the White House lawn. Although change has been slow, Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, and the Palestinians are working together. This article focuses on the infrastructure plans of Israel. Israel is the most developed economy in the region and is investing billions of dollars over the next 10 years on projects designed to place it at the center of the "new Middle East." Some of those projects include $35 million in road upgrades, especially in the Tel Aviv area; a $1 billion suburban railway system in the Tel Aviv area; an $850 million terminal to be added to Ben Gurion Airport; a railway and road network linking Israel, Jordan, and Syria; and construction of marinas along the Mediterranean.
