France to Start Supplying Israel with Industrial Equipment

French trucks, tractors, agricultural machinery and industrial equipment will soon be seen in Israel as a result of the $30, 000, 000 credit recently extended to this country by France, I. Bacquier, the French commercial attache, said here today. He announced that Israel will participate for the first time in the famed Marseilles International Fair.

In an interview here, M. Baquier said that there was a good market in French Africa for Israeli exports. Israeli products were well-received there, he said, especially vehicles assembled in Israel. Meanwhile, dairies in Israel prepared to export canned milk to French Equatorial Africa. If they can produce milk at prices competitive with the Dutch industry, it was said here, there is a market which could absorb their production surpluses.
