The new chemical complex now nearing completion at Arad, in
which Israel Bond funds play a major role, will be the largest enter-
prise in the entire country. The cost of construction is expected to be
more than $40,000,000, and the huge combine of chemical plants is
slated to earn some $23,000,000 per year from exports. Above is a

plant in anal stages of construction.
