Israel Trade Mission to Leave for Poland; Seeks Trade Pact

An Israel trade mission will leave for Warsaw this week to negotiate a new trade agreement, it was learned here today.

The mission will offer citrus products in exchange for Polish barley, sugar and lumber for boxes. Between 1949 and 1951 Israel and Poland signed three annual pacts, the last of which lapsed in 1952 without being renewed. Poland still owes Israel some $200,000 on the 1951 agreement.
