  • Description

    Further talks have been held in Brussels on Spain's admission to the European Economic Community.

    SYNOPSIS: The Spanish delegation was led by Mr. Raimundo Bassols who is Chief of the Spanish Mission to the E.E.C. and Ambassador. It was hoped that these talks would approach the final stages of Spain's application to the join the Common Market.

    The E.E.C. has already decided in principle that Spain should join the Common Market, however, when that decision was taken, it was also announced that Spain's membership would present considerable problems.

    Spanish membership, it was pointed out, would be a fundamental test of the strength of the Community since some sectors of the Spanish economy would required a transition period of some ten years. Spanish agriculture, it was said, was very backward and its industry would need protection from the competition of E.E.C. members.
