A group of 40 business leaders from the Soviet Union toured three Baltimore companies yesterday to learn about the various stages of business development in the United States.
The group's two-week tour is sponsored by Soyuz Transworld Corp., a Washington-based firm that promotes trade between the two countries. The businessmen have toured Washington to learn about American government, traveled to Baltimore to learn about manufacturing and are to go to New York for an introduction to the New York Stock Exchange.
In Baltimore, the group toured the General Motors plant on Broening Highway to see a large manufacturing plant. It also visited Polk Audio, a medium-size stereo equipment maker, and J.L. Wickham, a growing manufacturer of machine tools.
