  • Description

    President Ford called for an international project to develop a comprehensive world energy and resources programme when he addressed a World Energy Conference in Detroit on Monday (23 September).

    Mr. Ford said the scheme would be called Project Interdependence. Its aim would be to increase energy production, eliminate waste, help the poorest countries, force a cooperative spirit to avoid conflicts over oil, and work out a global strategy on fuel prices.

    He told the 3,600 delegates from 65 countries that sovereign nations cannot allow their policies to be dictated by artificial rigging of fuel prices.

    The Energy Conference is the ninth this century and is a meeting of energy experts who have gathered in Detroit to discuss the world's energy situation and plan a world free from fuel worries.
