Warsaw (Jul. 21)
The importance of Jewish participation in the revival of commerce was emphasized by the Polish Minister of Commerce, Kwiatkowski, in an address he delivered yesterday before a large conference of Polish businessmen held in the offices of the Polish Ministry of Commerce. The Ministers of Finance, Labor and the Interior were present. Representatives from the headquarters of the Jewish Merchants’ Association of Warsaw and delegates of Jewish merchants’ groups in various provincial towns were also present.
The commercial policy conducted until now by the government was harmful to the state, M. Kwiatkowski declared. As an indication of the new era which will be instituted by the government, the Minister stated that the government will endeavor to fulfill the demands of the Jewish merchants. He asked the delegates of the Jewish merchants’ associations to speak freely on their problems and the prospects for the future.
