Ramallah: Palestinian Authority Prime Minster Salam Fayyad said on Tuesday he is confident his government will have the institutional framework in place by the end of the summer necessary to win global support for an independent Palestinian state.

“It is our goal and our expectation that as a result of what we are doing – getting ready for statehood, developing institutions that delivery services competently and (developing) core values – that our state of Palestine will be founded,” Fayyad said.


“I am very happy to tell you that in many areas of governance we are already there", he added.

Fayyad, the Palestinian Authority’s No. 2, has been cracking down on corruption and inefficiency as part of a two-year-old campaign to gain recognition for a Palestinians state from the United Nations General Assembly, probably in September.


Israel is opposed to the plan, saying a state should be achieved through negotiations, even though they have been deadlocked for months.

Fayyad said the PA’s economic bodies, including the Palestine Monetary Authority and Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS), were already up to the standards he had set. He cited the Palestinian CBS for special praise, saying it was close to meeting the International Monetary Fund’s IIMF’s) highest benchmarks.

Palestinian statehood has been recognized by Brazil, Argentina, Chile and other Latin American countries. France, Norway, Spain, and Portugal have upgraded local Palestinian representations. But Fayyad said that creating corruption-free institutions is as important as winning international support for a Palestinian state regarded as worthy of joining the community of nations.

Speaking at a venture capital conference in the West Bank city of Ramallah, Fayyad said he was anxious to wean the PA off foreign assistance both as part of the statehood drive and to encourage foreign investment. As well as good government and functioning legal system that can enforce contracts, investors want to government to show sustainable budgets, he said.
