THE "77" CONFERENCE -- NAMED 77 AFTER THE NUMBER OF COUNTRIES THAT ATTENDED THE FIRST UNITED NATIONS CONFERENCE ON TRADE AND DEVELOPMENT WHICH TOOK PLACE IN GENEVA IN 1964 -- HAS BEEN CALLED SO THAT THE DEVELOPING COUNTRIES CAN DECIDE ON A COMMON LINE TO ADOPT IN THE FACE OF THE GIANT INDUSTRIALISED NATIONS. NINE NEWLY INDEPENDENT NATIONS HAVE JOINED THE 77, SO WHEN THE CONFERENCE OPENS ON TUESDAY 86 COUNTRIES WILL BE REPRESENTED BY SOME 800 DELEGATES. BOTH THE AFRICAN AND THE ARAB NATIONS HAVE BEEN HOLDING REGIONAL MEETINGS PRIOR TO THE CONFERENCE.

    THE ARAB REGIONAL GROUP MEETING OPENED ON SATURDAY. 14 ARAB NATIONS WERE REPRESENTED AT THE REGIONAL MEETING.

    NO FORMAL AGENDA HAS YET BEEN PRESENTED FOR TUESDAY'S CONFERENCE, BUT THE AFRICAN REGIONAL GROUP MEETING HAS DISCUSSED AN AGENDA SIMILAR TO THAT EXPECTED FOR THE CONFERENCE. THE MAIN AIMS CENTRE ON: THE AVAILABILITY OF RAW MATERIALS AND PRICE STABILISATION; INCREASED EXPORTS FOR MANUFACTURED AND SEMI-MANUFACTURED GOODS; CUSTOMS BARRIERS AND PREFERENCES; CONDITIONS OF FINANCE AND AID; AND SPECIAL MEASURES IN FAVOUR OF THE LEAST PRIVILEGED DEVELOPING COUNTRIES. THERE WILL ALSO BE DISCUSSION OF WAYS OF INCREASING TRADE AND CO-OPERATION BETWEEN THE DEVELOPING COUNTRIES.
