In the past year Holland has provided £10,500 for the establishment of a new colony, Ramataim, in the orange belt. New colonies of Orthodox Jews have been assisted by the Baron Rothschild to the extent of £7,000, while a new Bulgarian colony is being established by the Keren Hayesod on the land of the Jewish National Fund near Ness Zionna at a cost of £18,000.

Completion of the old settlements before the establishment of new ones is the present policy of the Zionist authorities. Every colony has been studied from the point of view of the experts’ recommendations in 1924. Expert committees have been appointed on table grapes, sericulture and standardization of agricultural machinery.
