  • Description

    IN BUCHAREST, WHERE PRESIDENT NIXON IS THE TO MEET RUMANIAN PRESIDENT NICOLAE CEAUSESCU ON AUGUST 2, PREPARATIONS ARE WELL UNDER WAY. PRESIDENT NIXON IS VISITING RUMANIA AT THE INVITATION OF PRESIDENT CEAUSESCU.

    THE MEETING BETWEEN THE TWO LEADERS WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE STATE COUNCIL BUILDING IN BUCHAREST, AND A PRESS CENTRE HAS BEEN ESTABLISHING AT THE NEARBY ATHENEE PALACE HOTEL.

    EAST-WEST MEETINGS AT A MUCH LOWER LEVEL ARE WELCOME IN RUMANIA, WHICH HAS FOR SOME TIME BEEN BOOSTING ITS TOURIST TRADE, AND THIS YEAR THE GOVERNMENT IS HOPING THAT THE TOTAL OF AMERICAN TOURISTS WILL TOP THE 2-MILLION MARK.

    WHILE MOST OF THE TOURISTS CONVERGE ON BUCHAREST ITSELF. A FAVOURITE SPOT FOR THEM IS THE NEARBY BEACH AT MAMMAIA, WHICH OFFERS MILES OF GOLDEN SAND AND WARM SUNSHINE.

    ALMOST ONE-THIRD OF THE COUNTRY'S NATIONAL INCOME DERIVED FROM THE TOURIST INDUSTRY.

    SHOPS IN THE RUMANIAN CAPITAL ARE WELL STOCKED, BUT PRICES ARE HIGH WITH A PAIR OF WOMEN'S SHOES COSTING ABOUT TWO WEEK'S WAGES FOR A YOUNG FACTORY WORKER, AND A MAN'S SUIT COSTING ABOUT A MONTH'S SALARY FOR ONE OF THE MORE HIGHLY-PAID WORKERS. ALL OVER THE CAPITAL NEW BLOCKS OF FLATS ARE GOING UP. THEY ARE COMMUNAL LIVING QUARTER FOR THE CITY'S WORKERS.
