• Short Summary

    Four specialist commissions were set up by the International Energy and Raw Materials Conference in Paris on Friday (19 December)
    The commissions will deal with energy, raw materials, development problems and finance, and will tackle the world's economic problems
    A final preparatory meeting is to be held in Paris on 26 January 1976, and the commissions are to start their negotiations on 11 February 1976
    The commission have been instructed to report back to a new ministerial conference in about a year's time
    The Paris conference, held after lengthy preparatory sessions in April and October, was the first meeting between the oil-producing states and their customers from the industrial and developing worlds
    The major problem delaying the establishment of the commissions centred on the whether they should be free to choose their own subjects for negotiation
    The January meeting will be restricted to the two conference chairmen, Canada and Venezuela, and the chairmen of the four commissions, one from each of the industrial and developing sides
    Formally closing the three-day conference, the Canadian Foreign Minister, Allan MacEachen, the conference co-chairman, told his fellow ministers: "We have laid the foundation for the beginning of a historic international dialogue"
    Fellow co-chairman, Manuel Perez-Guerrero, the Venezuelan International Economic Affairs Minister, said: "We are facing a very difficult and arduous task, but we believe we can bring solutions to the world problems"

    Background: Four specialist commissions were set up by the International Energy and Raw Materials Conference in Paris on Friday (19 December)
    The commissions will deal with energy, raw materials, development problems and finance, and will tackle the world's economic problems
    A final preparatory meeting is to be held in Paris on 26 January 1976, and the commissions are to start their negotiations on 11 February 1976
    The commission have been instructed to report back to a new ministerial conference in about a year's time
    The Paris conference, held after lengthy preparatory sessions in April and October, was the first meeting between the oil-producing states and their customers from the industrial and developing worlds
    The major problem delaying the establishment of the commissions centred on the whether they should be free to choose their own subjects for negotiation
    The January meeting will be restricted to the two conference chairmen, Canada and Venezuela, and the chairmen of the four commissions, one from each of the industrial and developing sides
    Formally closing the three-day conference, the Canadian Foreign Minister, Allan MacEachen, the conference co-chairman, told his fellow ministers: "We have laid the foundation for the beginning of a historic international dialogue"
    Fellow co-chairman, Manuel Perez-Guerrero, the Venezuelan International Economic Affairs Minister, said: "We are facing a very difficult and arduous task, but we believe we can bring solutions to the world problems"
    SYNOPSIS: Four commissions to tackle the world's economic problems were established by the International Energy and Raw Materials Conference in Paris on Friday. The commissions will study energy, raw materials, development problems and finance. They're the result of hours of haggling at the conference ... which was the first meeting between the oil-producing states and their customers from the industrial and developing worlds. One of the conference co-chairmen, Canada's Foreign Minister, Allan MacEachen, talked about the conference to journalists
    Mr. MacEachen also said the conference had laid the foundation for the beginning of a historic international dialogue. His fellow co-chairman was the Venezuelan International Economic Affairs Minister, Manuel Perez-Guerrero. He said the conference was facing a very difficult and arduous task, but believed that it could bring solutions to the world problems. A final preparatory meeting involving Commission heads is to be held in January. One of the difficulties in establishing the commissions was deciding whether or not they should be given specific mandates
