Egyptian Paper Urges Harbor Challenging Haifa

A bitter complaint is voiced in “Mokattam”, leading Arabic daily here, against the alleged indifference of the Egyptian Government to the development of Haifa harbor and plans to improve port facilities at Beirut and Tripoli.

Various plans were submitted to the Egyptian Government for the improvement of the Alexandria harbor, but these were rejected on the grounds of economy. The paper declares that Alexandria will be the loser in the harbor competition among cities along the Mediterranean.
