Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to ease the economic burden on Israeli citizens as he was presented Monday with the list of experts who will comprise a panel to engage in dialogue with representatives of the popular protests currently sweeping Israel.

The team will appoint 14 permanent members, five of whom are academics from the private sector. In addition to the permanent members, there will be eight external advisers.

The Prime Minister’s Office announced that the name of the panel, which will be lead by Prof. Manuel Trajtenberg, who formerly headed the government’s economic advisory council, will be “The panel for socioeconomic change.”
