Co-operation Sought Between Jewish and Arab Tobacco Growers in Palestine


Co–operation between Jewish and Arab tobacco growers was urged by the District Governor, Lt. Col. C.H.F. Symes, during his visit to the Jewish colony at Rosh Pina. He declared that the Government was dealing with the question of the tobacco industry in Palestine very carefully, and that it was the desire of the Government that there be co-operatpion between the Jewish and Arab tobacco growers so as to avoid competition and secure a good market for both.

The Arabs, however, are hesitating to co-operate as they are afraid that they will be the lesers by such an arrangement-Propaganda is now being made by the Sub-District Governor of Acre to persuade the Arabs in his district of the feasibility of such an arrangement.
