Download PDF for this date

It is announced that an Italian Mission to Mexico has laid before the Ministry of Agriculture of that country a plan for the establishment of large agricultural colonies of Italians in the regions of Tamaulipat and Jalisco.

President Obregon has promised the support of the Mexican Government in the prompt realisation of this plan which is similar to the one which was recently considered by Jewish organizations.

The Italian General Emigration Office states that the scheme is being actively considered.
