At its session last November, the conference took the blacklist more than twenty British, French , German, Spanish, Italian, Swiss and Swedish firms which had activities with Israel. The session will discus ways to tighten the Arab economic blockade to stop Israeli goods getting through occupied territory into Arab countries.
