The large turn-out of buyers and industrialists from foreign countries at Israel’s metals week exhibition that opened here today indicated more than anything else that the Arab boycott of Israel is approaching bankruptcy, observers here noted. Minister of Commerce and Industry Haim Barlev, who attended the opening, stressed that Israel Aircraft Industries and others that manufacture or assemble or process metal components attract buyers from near and far.

One industrialist attending the exhibit is J.R. Harvey, operations vice-president of Babcock & Wilcox, the American manufacturer of power generating equipment that is building a coal-fired power station near Hadera. Babcock & Wilcox is one of three major American firms that have submitted bids to build Israel’s first nuclear power station.
