Israel Firms Participate in New York International Trade Fair

Fifty Israel commercial firms and manufacturers, as well as the government’s Tourist Office will exhibit this year at the New York International Trade Fair which opens Monday and runs for one week. Dr. E. Justice-Dayan, director of the Israel Commission for Fairs and Exhibitions, who came here to supervise the exhibit, said today that there is reason to believe Israel exports to the United States may be increased materially as a result of participation in the fair.

Included among the products to be exhibited will be yarns, woolens and knitwear, foods, wine and beer, costume jewelry, phonograph records, arts and crafts, fashions and raincoats. Exhibited for the first time in this country in one of the Israel booths will be a sewing machine manufactured in Israel. Only articles that are likely to have a market in the United States have been included in the exhibit. After the fair here the exhibit will be shown in other cities.
