PARIS, (JTA)—Israel was ...d-

Organization for Economic Co-
operation and Develor.ment, the
20-member body that includes
18 West European nations, plus
the United States and Canada.
The organization's C o u n c
meeting here, announced that
Israel has been admitted to the
OECD "scheme" for interna-
tional standards for fruit and
The "scheme" is designed to
insure that products entering
trade among the OECD coun-
tries conform with agr'ed
standards in regard to quality
and homogeneity. OECD stand-
ardization is regarded as an es-
sential economic factor in the
trade in perishable products,
where transport and marketing
are a constant problem. Israel
is the first non-member coun-
try • of OECD admitted to this
"scheme" and, so f - r, the only
non-member in the plan. Its
admission is generally regarded
here as a further step in
Israel's participation in the
OECD's work.
