Download PDF for this date

Israel will transfer its main technical assistance office for Latin American countries from Rio de Janeiro to Lima next September, it was reported here today by Dr. Jvier Silva Ruete, Peruvian Minister of Agriculture, who Just returned from a visit to Israel.

Dr. Ruete voiced admiration here for Israel’s methods of increasing agricultural production and lauded the country’s cooperative organization for the marketing of food products, which, he said, has been of assistance to Peru. During his stay in Israel, Dr. Ruete toured the Negev irrigation project and inspected Israel’s facilities for the use of subterranean water resources.
