Leading Soviet government circles are discussing the possibility of opening the doors of Russia for the entry of qualified Jewish workers from lands abroad, the correspondent of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency learns.
In the event that the decision should be made, the condition for the entry of Jewish workers would be their pledge to settle in Bira Bidjan, Far Eastern Region, which the Soviet government has declared its intention of developing into a Jewish republic. If the doors are opened such action will be prompted by the lack of qualified workers for the development of Bira Bidjan.
