    Background: AN EXHIBITION ILLUSTRATING WORK OF THE COLOMBO PLAN WAS OPENED IN LONDON TODAY (MONDAY). IT IS BEING HELD IN CONNECTION WITH THE CURRENT MEETING OF COLOMBO PLAN MEMBERS.

    IT WAS OPENED BY THE MINISTER OF STATE AT BRITAIN'S FOREIGN OFFICE, LORD WALSTON. THE EXHIBITION FEATURES PROBLEMS OF RURAL DEVELOPMENT, WHICH IS THE CHIEF TOPIC AT THE PRESENT COLOMBO PLAN MEETING.

    (THE COLOMBO PLAN IS THE NAME GIVEN TO CO-OPERATIVE EFFORT AMONG COUNTRIES IN THE INDIAN SUB-CONTINENT AND SOUTH-EAST ASIA, AIDED BY WESTERN NATIONS OUTSIDE THE REGION. ITS CHIEF AIM IS TO DEVELOP THE ECONOMIES OF THESE COUNTRIES AND RAISE THE STANDARD OF LIVING.)
    MOST OF THE 22 MEMBER-NATIONS ARE REPRESENTED AT THE EXHIBITION. LAOS, SUFFERING FROM CIVIL WAR, IS ONE OF THE SOUTH-EAST ASIAN COUNTRIES THAT CAN BENEFIT GREATLY UNDER THE PLAN.

    ON THE BHUTAN STAND -- A DECORATED GOLD BOWL. THIS COUNTRY ON THE RUGGED SOUTHERN SLOPES OF THE HIMALAYAS IS STEPPING SLOWLY INTO THE MODERN WORLD -- HELPED BY THE COLOMBO PLAN.

    FROM THE PHILIPPINES, A DISPLAY OF LACE -- ONE OF THE COUNTRY'S MOST ATTRACTIVE EXPORTS. LIVE DESERT LOCUSTS ARE SHOWN AT THE ANTI-LOCUST RESEARCH CENTRE STAND - A GRIM REMINDER OF HOW A YEAR'S HARD WORK ON THE LAND CAN BE RUINED OVERNIGHT.

    A SILVER CASKET FROM MALAYSIA. THE FEDERATION HAS BEEN PARTICULARLY CONCERNED WITH RURAL DEVELOPMENT, AND GREAT STRIDES HAVE BEEN MADE IN THE PAST FEW YEARS.

    THAILAND'S MISS SRINUAN CHAIWASIE IS JUST ONE OF THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS WHO HAVE BENEFITED UNDER THE COLOMBO PLAN. AND SO HAS THAILAND'S INCREASED PROSPERITY, HELPED PARTICULARLY BY AMERICAN AID.
