JERUSALEM (Apr. 17)
The Israel Government was expected here today to grant facilities for a Coca-Cola plant in Israel under regulations which encourage foreign investors. In general, the Government has not been encouraging the establishment of industries aimed exclusively at production of goods for current consumption, and not exportable. However, it is generally believed that, should a Coca-Cola plant be established in a development area, the usual facilities for “approved concerns” would be granted.
Recently, the Zenith Company, of the United States, was granted plant facilities after it had agreed to establish a television set factory at either Beersheba or Nazareth, both of which are included among development areas.
