  • Description

    Addressing delegates to the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday (3 October), the Foreign Minister of Senegal, Mr Assane Seck, called for the establishment of a new world economic order. This was the best way, he said, to ensure that the developing nations of the Third World received their just share of the world's wealth.

    Mr. Seck told the General Assembly that the appropriation of raw materials by the strong nations against the interests of the weak formed the basis of the present unfair economic structure. Raw materials, he continued could be priced against an index of values for manufactured goods. With this system, the terms of exchange for raw materials would be protected.

    The Senegal delegate went on to discuss the programme of action drawn up by the Sixth Special Session of the United Nations -- held earlier this year -- to consider the problems of the developing nations, and of raw materials in particular.
