MIAMI (Nov. 25)
The Florida-Israel Chamber of Commerce responded this year to more than 40 inquiries from Israel for help in finding distributors, machinery and equipment for Israeli factories and counseling in business and technology, Arthur S. Rosichan, Chamber president, reported at the Chamber’s annual dinner meeting here.
He also told the 500 business and professional guests that the Chamber responded as well to requests from Florida business and professional people for information on sources of investment in Israel as well as information on Israel inventions and products. He announced that after Jan. 1, the Chamber will become the America-Israel Chamber of Commerce Florida Region.
Zvi Brush, Minister of Information of Israel, who substituted for Israel Ambassador Ephraim Evron who was ill, stressed the advantages of investing in Israel, including its proximity to the European Common Market, which he said made it advantageous for American firms to establish plants in Israel for sales in the-Common Market.
Brush said he was very optimistic about the peace accord between Israel and Egypt and that formal diplomatic relations between Israel and Egypt would be established soon.
