Bernard Flexner En Route to Palestine

Download PDF for this date

A cable was received by the Palestine Economic Corporation here, announcing the arrival in London of Mr. Bernard Flexner, its president, who is en route to Palestine in the interests of the Corporation.

Shortly after the meeting of the Board of Directors of the Palestine Economic Corporation, at which the plans for taking over the assets of the Palestine Cooperative Co., Inc. and of the Reconstruction Office of the Joint Distribution Committee in Palestine were approved, Mr. Flexner left for Palestine.

Mr. Flexner has been in Palestine before, but in view of the rapid changes in economic needs and business opportunities of the country, decided to make another trip at this time so as to have first hand knowledge of the present day problems in the light of which the Corporation may undertake new enterprises in addition to carrying on the work previously initiated by the J. D. C. and the Palestine Cooperative Co., Inc.
