26.That parts of Area C can be beneficial economically is further illustrated by current Israeli
economic activity in that area.
There are about 20 Israeli industrial settlements in the West Bank
in addition to many others with cultivated agricultural areas (agricultural developments sometimes
extend beyond the built up boundaries of the settlements). The GoI estimates that the value of goods
produced in West Bank settlements and exported to Europe is US$300 million per year. Other analysis also considers goods that were partially produced in settlements, resulting in an increased estimate of
US$5.4 billion in 2008.
