That is the conclusion reached by Hugh p. Farley, director in Lebanon for the U. S. Foreign Operations Administration. He has spent a year studying investment possibilities and economic development in this region. VA MEDICAL HEAD - Dr. William S.

Dr. Middleton is the dean of the University of Wisconsin Medical School 60 Passengers Unhurt in Plane Mishap Government investment here of- 'ten hits been In cooperation with foreign governments, but the Arab states have taken the initiative ill many cases. "Look at Hie map from Tripoli to Baghdad," Farley said. "In every Arab state there has been government investment to the tune of millions of dollars In productive projects which mean more jobs, greater productivity, and a higher standard of living." Farley pointed to the 10 million dollars of American aid to Libya last year, 40 million to Egypt. 6 million to Lebonon, and. 8 million to Jordan. Iraq financed most of lus own projects with oil revenues, which now amount to about HO million dollars yearly. Dam Planned Development projects-planned by these governments on their own will have far-reaching effects on Arab economy. Farley mentioned a dam being planned in Egypt to irrigate two million acres, the 100- million-doll.ii- Lltanl River hydroelectric project, to which the Lebanese government is committed, and Iraq's vast irrigation program, which will absorb the equivalent of a billion dollars of oil revenues in the next generation. ••In the past four years, the Lebanese government has invested 50 million Lebanese pounds (16 million dollars) In Ihe Beirut International Airport, to make It one of the busiest in the Orient," Farley said. "Shipping companies have 'told me the service they get In Beirut's seaport Is among the best in the Mediterranean.
