    Background: Leaders form eight communist countries are continuing their summit meeting on economic co-operation following an opening session devoted chiefly to discussion on integration.

    The Polish delegation led by Prime Minister Jozef cyrankiewicz, host to the three-day conference which ends today (Thursday 14 May), opened discussions with an appeal to other members of the East European Trading Bloc for joint steps towards integration.

    Soviet Premier, Alexei Kosygin, and other leaders have listened to calls fro Comecon members to look beyond short-term interests in tackling their economic problems and in order to keep pace with the current scientific and technological revolution.

    Although no details of debates have been disclosed, observers expect some advance towards the creation of an international investment bank, as well as transferable currency and domestic pricing reforms within the group. These are regarded as essential preliminaries to integration, and have been under study since being raised at the last Comecon Summit Meeting.
