Israel Imports Will Continue to Rise,
Organ Says; Trade Deficit Up 14 Pct.
WASHINGTON (JTA) — Israel's
imports, which reached a record
$1,400,000,000 in 1970, an increase
of 9 per cent over the 1969 level,
are expected to grow at the same
pace during 1971, according to
Commerce Today, a biweekly pub-
lication of the U. S. Department of
The magazine says the import
situation is a reflection of the
rapid growth of Israel's economy
since the 1967 Six-Day War.
It states, "This over-all growth
is likely to continue" unless it
is impeded by inflation which
began in 1970 and the massive
trade deficits which have been
financed by borrowing from
Commerce Today says that the
rate of increase in Israel's gross
national product has decreased
from 14 per cent in 1968, to 10 per
cent in 1969 and 9 per cent last
year and is expected to be only 8
per cent this year.
The magazine also reported that
in 1970 the U.S. sold Israel $342,-

000,000 worth of goods, or 23.8 per
cent of Israeli imports. At the
same time, the U. S. purchased
$149,000,000 of Israeli goods, or
19.1 per cent of all Israeli ex-
Israel's balance of trade deficit
rose by 14 per cent during the first
six months of 1971, owing mainly
to the purchase of ships and air-
craft abroad, the Israel Central
Bureau of Statistics reported.
If ships and planes are excluded,
Israel's trade deficit actually de-
clined by 8 per cent for the period.
According to the bureau's fig-
ures, it stood at $298,000,000 for
the period January-June 1971, com-
pared to $325,000,000 for the same
period last year.
Adding the purchase of ships
and planes, the deficit climbed
to $412,000,000. Israeli over-all
imports grew by 19 per cent dur-
ing the January-June period to to-
tal $879,000,000 net while exports
rose by 24 per cent, totalling $468,-

The Pentagon assessment was

Raymond V. B. Blackman, editor
of the authoritative Jane's Fight-
ing Ships, that U.S. naval strength
is in a serious decline while So-
viet sea power was expanding
into a "super navy."
Blackman said in a foreword to
the 1971-72 issue of Jane's, pub-
lished in London, that "so prolific

The Pentagon spokesman, ques-
tioned by the JTA, said the two
aircraft carriers the U.S. maintains
in the Mediterranean and the fleet
of ballistic submarines equipped
with inter-continental missiles gave
the U.S. an advantage in long-
range strike feasibility.
According to the Pentagon, the
U.S. has approximately 40 ships
in the Sixth Fleet while the So-
viets have about 50 in the Med-

60, not including Soviet vessels
in Egyptian ports flying the Egyp-
tian flag. The source said the
Russians had two aircraft car-
riers based in the Black Sea. He
said both U.S. and Soviet naval
vessels would use the Suez Canal if
it was reopened.
