JERUSALEM (Nov. 24)
Yigal Hurwitz, Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism, will visit Rumania next week to discuss with Rumanian authorities the development of commercial and tourism ties between the two countries. He will be the second minister to leave the country next week. Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan will be in West Germany on a formal four-day visit where he will meet with government officials. Premier Menachem Begin, who postponed his visit to Britain because of President Anwar Sadat’s visit, will be in London between Dec. 2 and Dec. 5.
Hurwitz, who will stay in Rumania for one week, will chair an Israeli-Rumanian committee which convenes once a year according to the 1968 economic cooperation agreement between the two countries. Israel wants to increase the imports of meat, buses and agricultural vehicles from Rumania. Israel’s export to that country consists of citrus, phosphates and chemicals.”
It is also expected that Hurwitz will brief the Rumanian authorities on Sadat’s visit. Rumanian President Nicolae Ceausescu reportedly played a major role in arranging the Sadat visit.
