PRESS RE .EASE
COMMONWEALTH ECONOMIC CONFERENCE

What They Are Talking About
.THa Commonwealth Economic Con-
erence that opened in London last
Thursday is the first occasion since the
Ottawa Conference of 1932 on which Com.r
monwealth Prime Ministers, 'Finance
Ministers, and other senior ministers have
met to survey the whole range of financial,
economic, and commercial problems facing
their countries and the world.
Messrs G.1. Adams (Barbados) and A.
lemes (Trinidad) are attending the Con-
ference, as advisers to the Secretary of
State for the Colonies.
Informed quarters emphasize that dra-
matic decisions should not be looke:i for
from this Conference, particularly with
regard to the convertibility of sterling.
The first task of the Conference may be
to review progress in stabilizing the
balance of p yments position since the
Commonwealth Finance Ministers met last
January. If, as is foreseen, Ministers are
satisfied that the present balance of 'pay-
nients surplus with the non-sterling world
can be held, the Conference would then
consider how best that position can be
consolidated and improved. The possi
abilities would be examined of adopting
policies of expansion instead of th i es-
trictions, which were applied to meet an
acute emergency.
The British Government's view is under.
stood to be that there is no justification
for speculation on sterling convertibility
emerging as an immediate result of the
conference. The attitude of the new ad.
ministration in the U.S.A. will have an
important bearing on the question
In indicatingher own capital inv,-s ... r.i
programme, Great lritain is ex,cit.edi
to take the line that develop ne .. ai iA,ne
is no less important from the pint ,of
view of the sterling area as dtvelopnent
in less advanced countries 'Tlere is no
question of setting up a master body for
co-ordinating development schemes : the
aim is to find the type of projects best
calculated te increase the economic power
of the sterling araa, to serve world needs,
and to attract capital from outside.
It is hoped in this connection to enlist
the aid of the International Bank and Inter
national Monetary Fund. Here as else
where a joint approach by the Common.
wealth as a whole could prove more
effective than. individual approaches by
separate countries.
A problem of importance to the West
Indies which is likely to come up for dis-
cussion is that of devising means to avoid
extreme fluctuations in commodity prices
which seriously affect the financial stabile.
ty of producing countries--especially
those which, like most of the Britisn Carib -


412
A


bean territories, rely on the export' of a
very narrow range of products
The possibilities for the expansion of
expo ts will doubtless have high priority
on the agenda, and the attitude of the
Commonwealth countries to the General
Agreement on Tariffs and Trade ((GAff)
would be debated. The trend of the Con'
ference is thought likely to be in favour
of seeking revision of GATT. so as to en-
dow the countries concerned with greater
freedom to defend themselves against cut-
throat competition.
Sterling balances, though no longer con-
side, ed as formidable a problem, as they
once were, are another probable item for
discussion.
The Commonwealth Economic Confer-
ence is expected to last about a fortnight.
