    (TRANSCRIPT)



    JENKINS: SEQ 5: "The high level representation at this conference, the presence of so many ministers and so many other decision makers is very welcome to us in the community and encouraging for the building of a very good relation of interests and confidence. The association of South East Asian Nations has been slowly but firmly taking shape over the past few years. We in Europe welcome this new demonstration of the cohesion of your organisation. The oil price increase of 1973 and subsequent recession have aggravated the financial problems of most developing countries. As a result, there have inevitably been balance of payment problems and growing indebtedness. The Community has viewed these developments with concern and is prepared to make its contribution toward a solution."
