More U.S. Businessmen on Way to Israel to Give Israeli Businessmen ‘know-how’

Nine top flight American businessmen have visited Israel as volunteers over the past two years to give Israeli businessmen the benefit of their “know-how” and another group is expected here shortly for the same purpose, it has been reported by the International Executive Service Corp. The I.E.S. was organized to send American executives abroad for short periods to advise foreign companies. According to William L. Finger, vice president for the Middle East and Africa, it plans to expand its activities in Israel. The nine executives who have already been here came as part of an experimental pilot project. Finger said the I.E.S. activities in Israel would be sponsored by the Israel-American Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber announced that it will dedicate a new 15-story “American House” in Tel Aviv during Israel Independence Day celebrations in April.
