They keys to the Israeli pavilion were handed to Moshe Yehuda, commercial attache of the Israel Embassy, by Vazquez Yona, municipal engineer, on behalf of Mayor Manuel Iricibar. The Argentine Government meanwhile freed Israel from paying import dues and customs duties on merchandise up to a half million dollars in value which it will bring to the fair. The fair opens in October.
