Israel May Become “valuable Importer” of Argentine Products, Israeli Official Says

Declaring that he could not reveal any details of his negotiations with the Argentine Government with regard to an Argentine-Israeli trade agreement, Herman Hollander, member of the Israeli commercial mission here, today expressed the hope that within a few weeks he will be in a position to issue an official announcement on the first results of his mission in this country.

Mr. Hollander, who spoke at a luncheon tendered him by the Argentine-Israeli Economic Corporation, revealed that since May, 1948, Israel has purchased $6,280,000 worth of Argentine products as compared with $832,000 imported from Argentina by Palestine during the entire year of 1946. “Israel may become a very valuable importer of Argentine products,” he stressed.
