  • Description

    TOKYO'S AKASAKA PRINCE HOTEL WAS THE VENUE WHEN MORE THAN TWO HUNDRED DELEGATES FROM TWENTY ONE COUNTRIES ATTENDED THE ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF COLOMBO PLAN MEMBER NATIONS ON OCTOBER 31.
    REFFERED TO OFFICIALLY AS THE 12TH MEETING OF THE CONSULTATIVE COMMITTEE OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IN SOUTH AND SOUTH EAST ASIA THE CONFERENCE WILL LAST UNTIL NOVEMBER 17.
    THE DELEGATES HAD PLENTY TO TALK ABOUT, FOR IN THE TEN YEARS SINCE THE PLAN WAS CONCEIVED IN 1950, THERE ARE OVER 100 MILLION MORE PEOPLE LIVING IN THE COUNTRIES COVERED BY THE PLAN.
    A REPORT READ TO THE DELEGATES ATTENDING THE FIRST DAYS SESSION WARNED THAT ONLY SUSTAINED EFFORT ON THE PART OF ALL COUNTRIES CONCERNED COULD AVERT A TRAGIC OUTCOME TO THIS UNPRECEDENTED POPULATION INCREASE.
    THE DELEGATES WERE ALSO TOLD THAT SINCE 1950 NEARLY TWO THOUSAND EXPERTS HAD VISITED THE REGION TO PERFORM AND DEMONSTRATE TECHNICAL SKILLS.
    THE SIX AID GIVING NATIONS ARE THE UNITED STATES, BRITAIN, CANADA, JAPAN, AUSTRALIA, AND NEW ZEALAND.
    THE DELEGATES TO THE MEETING, BESIDES DRAWING UP FIFTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE CONSULTATIVE COMMITTEE WILL REVIEW ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENTS IN EACH MEMBER COUNTRY.
