TEL AVIV (Feb. 26)
Israel is selling “know-how” to the People’s Republic of China, employing the promotional services of a local public relations firm and a PR firm in Hong Kong which specializes in translation.
Yonatan Goldberg, head of the Gitam Image Promotion Co., disclosed today that Gitam was commissioned to prepare publicity and informational material for the representatives of two Israeli comparies who went to China recently to explain certain processes and to see that they were properly implemented.
Goldberg declined to identify the companies nor did he indicate the kind of “know-how” Israel was exporting to China. At least part of it seems to be military, according to reports. Western military attaches in Peking reported several months ago that British-made tanks at a ceremonial parade were fitted with Israel-made cannons.
