Israel is a significant market for raw materials as well as finished products made in the U.S.A. Arthur Settel, official of the Department of Commerce in Washington, told the American-Israel Chamber of Commerce and Industry at a luncheon meeting today.

“The American people take pride in the progress and development of all nations which are devoted to peaceful growth, and Israel is a pre-eminent example,” Mr. Settel said, “She has set an example by the astonishing revitalization of the land and people in less than 14 years of independent existence.

“She has set an example by having exerted great moral influence in the new African and Asian States which have seen in Israel a model for their own development–since Israel, like them, had to start from scratch and weld together a heterogeneous population in a short time.”
