  • Description

    Fifty seven developing countries and the nine members of the European Economic Community have held a three day conference in the Bahamas to work out a new trade and aid pact. But the conference between the EEC and the African, Caribbean and Pacific States (ACP) was inconclusive. The most controversial issues will be dealt with when the sixty-six nations meet in Brussels on May the 24th. The developing countries urged the EEC to increase its aid from 4-point-65 billion dollars to 13-point-5 billions. But Common Market officials said it was not likely to increase by much more than a third.

    SYNOPSIS: Delegates at the conference hall heard Bahamas Prime Minister, Lynden O. Pindling, pay tribute to Jean Monnet, the architect of the European Economic Community who died recently. Monsieur Monnet worked towards the first ACP-EEC meeting in Togo, West Africa, in 1975.
