Plans Drawn for Expanding Israel’s Cultural and Scientific Ties

Download PDF for this date

Plans aimed at expanding Israel’s cultural and scientific ties with other countries were forwarded today to Foreign Minister Abba Eban by a special task force which he had appointed last April.

The committee’s recommendations called for the appointment of a scientific adviser to the Foreign Minister, who would advise on scientific ties overseas; creation of an advisory public council on cultural and scientific relations; and a gradual increase of the number of cultural and scientific attaches at Israeli missions abroad. The proposals also recommended more cultural exchanges under Israel’s cultural agreements with other nations.
