Download PDF for this date

Two delegations of prominent leaders of this new republic left yesterday for Israel. One is a delegation of trade union leaders, the other is a smaller group representing the Joint Provincial Council of Ghana’s Chiefs.

The union delegation, consisting of six members headed by Deputy Secretary General Mettlenunoo, of the Ghana Trade Union Congress, will be guests of the Israel Confederation of Labor and will spend four months in Israel to study the operations of the Israel union movement. The unionists are particularly interested in the cooperatives conducted by Histadrut.

The second group was headed by Paramount Chief Tsibu Asarem of Assin Atandasu State. He will be the guest of the Mayor of Jerusalem, and will study the administration of regional and local councils in Israel.
