The Israel Government today granted its first loan to a joint Jewish-Arab industrial venture. A Jewish food processing company, in partnership with Faris Hamdan, member of Parliament and an Arab landowner, will establish a canning plant in the Arab village of Baka el Garbieh. Most of the food canned in the plant will be grown by Arab farmers at Baka el Garbieh.
