Seek New Fields for Palestinian Exports

A trade delegation of Palestinian producers and exporters is to be named at a meeting to be held here November 1 by the Committee on Agricultural Economics and Marketing of the General Agricultural Council. Its purpose will be to find new markets for Palestinian exports. The delegation will possibly go abroad in May or June.

The Committee has been conducting negotiations with the Roumanian government authorities with the hope of having certain trade restrictions governing trade with Palestine repudiated.

A sub-committee is to inquire into the future of the Nablus soap industry which is fast being undermined by high tariff walls in Egypt and imported acid oils. Another subcommittee was appointed to influence the Soviet government to import citrus fruits from the Holy Land.

Consignments of spring chickens to the United Kingdom on an experimental basis during April to May, 1934, will be the preliminary of a permanent commercial arrangement if it succeeds. A sub-committee will handle the experimental shipment.
