The largest Israeli exhibit ever to go overseas was due here aboard the motorship Mandarincore. The display, valued at $1 million weighs 2,000 tons and will cover 8,000 square meters of floorspace at the world trade fair that opens in Buenos Aires on Oct. 5.

Adin Talbar, deputy director of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, who saw the ship off in Israel, said the exhibit was the most comprehensive that Israel ever sent abroad. It contains samples of virtually everything made here, from heavy machinery to jewelry and high fashions. It will be set up at the Argentinian fair near an Israel tourist pavilion containing a restaurant, an Israeli supermarket and displays of coins and stamps, Mr. Talbar said.
