  • Description

    THE PRESIDENT OF THE IVORY COAST'S NATIONAL ASSEMBLY, M. PHILIPPE YACE, WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE FIFTH MEETING OF THE EURAFRICAN CONFERENCE WHICH OPENED IN TANANARIVE YESTERDAY (FRIDAY). THE CONFERENCE CONTINUES UNTIL JANUARY 15 AND IS ATTENDED BY 108 DELEGATES -- 3 FROM EACH OF THE 18 AFRO-MALAGASY STATES AND 54 FROM THE EUROPEAN COMMON MARKET STATES. THE DELEGATES WERE GREETED BY MALAGASY'S FOREIGN MINISTER, M. RABEMANANGARA.

    THE FOUR PREVIOUS CONFERENCE WERE HELD IN DAKAR (1964), ROME (1965), ABIDJAN (1966) AND STRASBOURG (1967). THE PRESIDENCY OF THE EURAFRICAN CONFERENCE IS HELD ALTERNATELY BY A EUROPEAN AND AN AFRICAN DELEGATE -- THE OUTGOING PRESIDENT BEING M. ALAIN POHER, PRESIDENT OF THE FRENCH SENATE.

    IT IS EXPECTED THAT THE CONFERENCE WILL CENTRE ON AN EXCHANGE OF VIEWS ON THE PROBLEMS OF INDUSTRIALIZATION AND THE DIFFICULTIES FOR ADVANCEMENT IN THE SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL FIELDS IN THE ASSOCIATED STATES. IN FACT, THE DEBATES WILL STRESS THE PROSPECTS OF RENEWING OF THE YAOUNDE CONVENTION WHICH EXPIRES MAY 31ST, 1969. IN ITS ACTUAL FORM, THE CONVENTION ALLOWS FOR THE CREATION OF A ZONE OF FREE CIRCULATION OF MERCHANDISE IN WHICH THE ASSOCIATED STATES HAVE FREE ACCESS TO THE EUROPEAN COMMON MARKET WHILE OPENING THEIR MARKET TO THE PRODUCTS OF THE SIX-NATION EUROPEAN COMMUNITY.
