ISTANBUL (Aug. 27)
One hundred and fifty Israeli firms are exhibiting their products this year at the Izmir International Fair which opened ten days ago and will run until September 30. Among leading products on display at the Fair are radiators, refrigerators, pharmaceutical appliances, fertilizers, machines for making concrete and souvenirs.
The Turkish government, it has been announced, will permit Turkish purchases from Israel to the amount of 1,300,000 liras (about $475,000). The old import quota was 800,000 liras (about $300,000).
High government and Izmir city officials, led by Turkish Trade Minister Abdullah Aker, the Governor, Mayor, and the manager of the Fair, paid a half-hour visit to the Israeli pavilion and praised the exhibit as “one of the best” at this year’s Fair.
