Euromart Council OKs Surcharge
on Citrus; Threat to Israel Imports

BRUSSELS (JTA)—The Council
of Ministers of the European Eco-
nomic Community allowed the re-
cent decision of the EEC Com-
mission providing for minimum
reference prices on citrus fruit im-
ported into Common Market coun-
tries, to go into effect Wednesday.
At the same time, the Council
decided Tuesday to leave the door
open for reconsideration of the en-
tire issue which threatens Israel's
orange exports to these countries
because of compensatory taxes
aimed at rising prices to a level
higher than Italian oranges. That
ruling would increase the price of
Israeli oranges for the ultimate
European consumers by about 20
per cent and could reduce Israel's
income considerably.
While permitting the commis-
sion's ruling to take. effect, the
Council's decision authorized the
commission and the special com-
mittee for agriculture to present
before Jan. 31, proposals for an
alternate solution to the problem
of citrus imports into the Com-
mon Market countries which would
give due consideration to the effect
of the system on trade with coun-
tries outside the EEC.
Tuesday's decision, while im-
plementing the. ruling providing
for unpredictable compensatory
taxes on imported citrus, opens
the way to some new approach
to the protection of Italian
orange producers which would
not affect the traditional trade

channels of non-member coun-
tries.
Israeli orange producers must
now await the first test cases of
the price differential and the at-
titude of EEC officials on the en-
forcement of the compensatory
taxes, before the precise effect of
the system on Israeli trade is
known.
Israel Minister of Commerce and
Industry Haim Zadok had gone to
Europe to try to persuade the
Council of Ministers to negate the
new ruling.
Reporting that he had discussed
the issue with the top representa-
tives of the Euromart at the EEC
headquarters in Brussels, Zadok
said then that reversal of the newly
created rule on "reference prices"
was unlikely in view of the fact
that France, one of the six mem-
bers of the EEC, is now boycotting
the EEC's Council of Ministers.
Aharon Becker, secretary gen-

eral of the Histadrut, Israel's
labor federation, appealed Mon-
day to the heads of trade unions
in the member countries of the
European Economic Community
to intervene on Israel's behalf
in this country's struggle to
maintain its competitive position
in the export of citrus fruit to
Common Market countries.
In messages cabled to union
leaders in France, West Germany,
Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands
and Luxemburg, Becker asked
them to intervene with their gov-
ernments to prevent the introduc-
tion of the minimum prices which
would threaten the employment of
thousands of workers in the citrus
industry and allied jobs. He stres-
sed the urgent need for immediate
action in view of the approaching
citrus harvest.
About 40 per cent of Israel's
total exports to the Euromart coun-
tries consists of citrus fruits.
