Germany is Israel’s Third Largest Customer; Follows Britain and U.S.

West Germany is now Israel’s third largest customer, bowing only to Great Britain and the United States as an importer from Israel, the Israel Trade Mission told a press conference here today.

Israel’s exports to West Germany in 1959 amounted to $16,960,000. In the first three months of this year, the amount was $11,650,000 as compared to $8,250,000 in 1959. Mission spokesmen estimated that by 1965, Israel deliveries to West Germany will average $20,000,000 a year and the total trade volume between the two countries will reach the $50,000,000 mark.
