||<p>The Secretary of State for International Development has not recently held any
discussions with her Israeli counterparts on economic revitalisation in Gaza. The
UK remains gravely concerned about the humanitarian and economic situation in Gaza.
In August 2017, Minister Burt met with Israeli officials to discuss various issues
including the dire need to improve the humanitarian and economic situation in Gaza.
We welcome all practical steps to improve conditions as a matter of urgency. HMG officials
regularly discuss economic revitalisation in Gaza with their Israeli and Palestinian
counterparts. For example, on 13 March, senior HMG officials attended a United States
hosted conference on the humanitarian and economic situation in Gaza alongside representatives
from 20 countries, including Israel.</p>
