Forty participants from 20 Latin American countries completed here today two courses on productivity and cooperation given in Israel under the sponsorship of the Organization of American States. Each course lasted three weeks.

At commencement exercises for the trainees, Alfred Pontes, representing the secretary-general of the CAS, greeted Israel on behalf of the organization. He declared that “Israel has done a very good job,” and promised to conduct further seminars in this country. The graduation ceremonies were attended, among others, by the ambassadors from 11 South American governments.
