collection. The outstanding obligations are to be classified into various groups of
items: food (rice, stock fish, milk, frozen fish, canned fish, dressed chicken,
canned meat, frozen or chilled beef and other meats, other foodstuffs), industrial
raw materials, spare parts, books, durable consumer goods, other consumer goods,
capital goods, motor cars, motor vehicles and trucks. Within each group the
financial obligations are to be further classified in order of expected .shipment date
as follows: a) within three months, b) over three months but within six months, c)
over six months and within 12 months, and d) over 12 months.

The circulars also indicate that existing forms M and Letters of Credit should not be
extended or amended without prior approval of The Central Bank. The circulars state
that the inventories of financial obligations should be reported to The Central Bank
no later than Tuesday, March 30. They indicate that after the above information is
evaluated new instructions will be issued by The Central Bank.
