March 16, 1966
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A new commercial agreement was signed here today between Israel and France, providing increases for the value of some of the Israeli exports, especially fruit juices, wines, olives and matzoh. The amount of French exports to Israel under the new pact was not indicated, but note was taken of the fact that French exports to Israel in 1965 were up by 14 percent, as compared with 1964.

Under the new pact, which extends the previously existing Franco-Israeli commercial agreement, Israel will be able to import in the next year $460, 000 worth of fruit juices, instead of the $200, 000 worth it imported to France in 1965; and $100, 000 worth of wines and matzoh, compared to last year’s $60, 000 worth. Israel will also be permitted to send to France, for the first time, transistors, electric valves and instant coffee.
