New opportunities for employing Jewish workers are expected to result from the establishment in Homel of a metal industry center, if the plans of the Soviet Government, just approved, are carried into operation.
According to the project, 54,000,000 roubles are to be invested during the next five years for the erection in Homel of 28 new factories. Eleven thousand workers would be employed. One of the factories is to be a tractor plant. Other plans are to manufacture glass, matches and paper. It is stated that, like in Kerch, the Jewish workers in White Russia are to be aided in entering the industries.
