. . American trade with Israel picked up last year following a slight
decline in the previous year; however, the U.S. share of the Israeli
market declined during the last months of 1964 . . . This was appar-
ently due to the fact that good local crops in Israel reduced the
volume of shipment of agricultural surplus commodities from the
United States . . . This drop in American share was in proportion
to the larger total of Israel's imports; in absolute terms, U.S. exports
to Israel rose, despite the loss in surplus feed grain sales against local
currency . . . In 1964, U.S. exports to Israel totaled $203,000,000, or
almost 10 percent above the $183,000,000 of 1963 . . . This year, it
is anticipated in Washington that sales of U.S. goods to Israel will
exceed $210,000,000 . . . Israel's total import was about $825,000,000

the centers, assisted them "to be-

With respect to services for
