Palestine to Boycott

JERUSALEM () -- Palestinian industrialists and businessmen will boycott official representation at next week's Middle East economic conference to protest against Israeli measures strangling their economy, union members said Monday.

Representatives of industrial, agricultural and business associations in the Palestinian self-ruled areas decided at a meeting last Wednesday not to send an official delegation to the Cairo conference to protest against Israeli policies. The conference is scheduled to start Nov. 12.
