The Israel Export Institute will participate in 50 international fairs during the 1981/1982 fiscal year compared to 36 during 1980/1981, according to Institute chairman Yitzhak Weiman. They will include three in Egypt, for Israel’s first-ever showing in a former enemy country. They are a book fair, a general fair and a fair for laboratory equipment.

Equipment and products to be shown include automotive spare parts, airplane equipment, safety equipment, electronics, textiles, building equipment, plastics and packaging, industrial sub-contracting equipment, processed foods, books, furniture, medical and laboratory equipment, agricultural equipment and fashions.
