Visit of World Bank Mission to Israel Postponed Indefinitely

The visit of a World Bank mission, expected here this month, has been postponed indefinitely, it was learned here today. The postponement also sets back the visit of Eugene Black, president of the World Bank, who was to follow the mission. The reason for the postponement is understood to be technical and not political.

Israeli authorities, it was understood, have not yet completed their detailed investment proposals for the mission’s consideration. The proposals are to include extension of the country’s electrical network, construction of the Ashdot port and a water development project.
