Download PDF for this date

Lebanon, Jordan, and Lybia have refused to participate in the international trade fair which opens here in April on the grounds that the Israel pavilion had been given more prominence. By contrast, Egypt, Iraq, Syria, Saudi Arabia and the Sudan have decided to vie with Israel and are devoting considerable sums to their national pavilions.
