  • Description

    President Valery Giscard D'Estaing of France has returned home after what has been described as a successful meeting with the heads of state of French-speaking nations in Africa.

    Among points agreed on at the two-day meeting in Bangui, Central African Republic, was a call for a complete reorganisation of the International Monetary System, taking into account the needs of developing countries.

    The heads of state at the meeting also approved the French sponsored meeting of oil producers and consumers in Paris next month, and decided to hold regular meetings themselves.

    Their final communique said they wished to contribute to the establishment of a world economic order based on solidarity between developed and developing countries, as well as on dialogue between producers and consumers of raw materials.

    Speaking to newsmen after the meeting, President Giscard D'Estaing paid particular attention to the plan for a financial system to be operated by French speaking African countries.

    He said it was very important as it was the first time such a scheme had been envisaged.
