  • Description

    Last-minute efforts to save the 66-nation international coffee agreement were going on in London today, as members of the World Coffee drafted a new article to solve the drawn-out instant-coffee dispute between Brazil and the United States.

    The conference met today at the Coffee Centre in London, 23 days after it last broke up in deadlock.

    The U.S.-Brazil dispute is the only remaining obstacle to renewal of the International coffee agreement which expires in September this year.

    When the conference broke up on January 23, a six-man special delegation was sent to Washington and Rio de Janeiro to seek a solution.

    Today, Coffee Council chairman Snr Angel Cordera of Mexico gave a brief resume of the delegation's work. While the drafting committee continued working in private, Snr Cordera said that their work had brought agreement near and a full agreement would soon be published.

    One innovation which is thought likely to be included in the new agreement is the setting up of a body independent of the main Council to arbitrate in all matters of dispute between member states.
