BONN (Aug. 21)
Eighteen handicraft production and export firms from Israel will take part in this year’s Frankfurt international autumn fair from Aug. 26-29. They will display a wide range of ceramics, gold and silver jewelry, glassware, and wood and metal products. Furniture will also be on display. Exports of these articles have risen from $4.3 million in 1965 to $13.9 million in 1972.
A total export of $36 million is estimated for 1981. Market experts here say that Israeli manufacturers of jewelry can expect increasing international orders, this despite world-wide increases in the price of precious metals.
Meanwhile, the German “Institute for New Technical Form” in Darmstadt has made a special award to Israeli designers for their ceramic ware.
The first international symposium on victimology, to take place in Jerusalem next month, will be attended by leading criminologists from all continents.
