  • Description

    FINANCE MINISTERS FROM THE FRANC ZONE COUNTRIES MET IN PARIS TODAY (TUESDAY) FOR THEIR BI-ANNUAL MEETING. THE FRANC ZONE COUNTRIES ARE MADE UP OF FRANCE AND FORMER FRENCH COLONIES IN AFRICA. TODAY'S MEETING WAS THE FIRST OFFICIAL ENGAGEMENT OF THE NEW FRENCH MINISTER OF FINANCE, M. FRANCOIS ORTOLI.

    THE PRIME FUNCTION OF THE MEETING WAS TO DRAW UP AN AGENDA OF FRANC ZONE PROPOSALS FOR THE COMING MEETING OF THE INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND IN WASHINGTON ON SEPTEMBER 30. A SIMILAR MEETING WAS HELD IN DAKAR, SENEGAL, BEFORE LAST YEAR'S I.M.F. MEETING IN RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL.

    MINISTERS ALSO DISCUSSED NEW MEASURES TO COMBAT ANY POSSIBLE DETERIORATION OF THE RATE OF EXCHANGE BETWEEN THE FRENCH FRANC AND THE CURRENCIES OF THE OTHER MEMBERS OF THE FRANC ZONE. THEY ALSO CONFERRED ON PROBLEMS WHICH MAY ARISE BEFORE THE RENEWAL OF THE YAOUNDE CONVENTION, WHICH FORMS AN ASSOCIATION BETWEEN THE EUROPEAN COMMON MARKET AND THE FRENCH SPEAKING AFRICAN COMMUNITY.
