    "BUT OVER AND ABOVE ALL, THE PRIMARY PRODUCING COUNTRIES RELY ON EXPORTS FOR THEIR VERY EXISTENCE AND DEVELOPMENT. BECAUSE OF THIS IT IS URGENTLY NECESSARY THAT INDUSTRIAL COUNTRIES AND DEVELOPING COUNTRIES SHOULD CO-OPERATE CLOSELY AND SINCERELY TO ENSURE THAT NOTHING IS DONE WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT THE EXPORTS OF PRIMARY PRODUCING COUNTRIES. ANY ACTION WHICH PRODUCES ADVERSE EFFECTS ON DEVELOPING COUNTRIES STRIKES AT THE VERY FOUNDATIONS ON WHICH COLOMBO PLAN STANDS, AND THEREBY NULLIFIES THE GOOD PURPOSE OF THE COLOMBO PLAN".



    "I WILL BE THE FIRST TO ADMIT THAT THERE IS NOTHING STARTLINGLY NEW IN THESE SUGGESTIONS, BUT I THINK YOU WILL AGREE WITH ME THAT THE TIME HAS COME TO TRY AND BRING THEM ABOUT QUICKLY. THIS MUST BE DONE IF WE ARE TO ACCELERATE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IN SOUTH AND SOUTH EAST ASIA. THIS MUST BE DONE IF THE PROSPECT OF A GROWING WORLD ECONOMY AND PROSPERITY ARE NOT TO GROW DIM. PROSPERITY, LIKE PEACE, CANNOT BE DIVIDED".
