  • Description

    Japanese Premier Ikeda called for increased assistance to under-developed countries when he addressed the opening session of the twelfth Ministerial meeting of the Colombo Plan Conference at Tokyo's Akasaka Prince Hotel Nov 14.

    Attended by twelve Cabinet ministers, and minister and ambassadors representing the twenty-one member countries, the four-day closed session meeting will focus attention particularly on South and South-East Asia, because of its economic, social and political significance.

    Two hundred delegates attended the official's meeting at the same hotel from Oct 31 until Nov 12, during which time they adopted the annual report of the Consultative Committee on Economic Development in South and South-East Asia, and reviewed the achievements and problems of the Plan's technical co-operation scheme.

    Over its eleven years of history, the Colombo Plan has provided some six billion dollars worth of assistance to under-developed nations of South and South-East Asia.
