Background: The arrival of M. Pinay, French Minister of Finance, in Bonn, July 3, was not - apparently - according to plan. After leaving his aircraft he had to wait in the Bonn civil airport buildings for some time before being greeted by Dr. Erhard, the West German Economics Minister, and the French Ambassador in Bonn.
M. Pinay was to have talks with Dr. Erhard about European trade problems and the economic integration of the Sear with Germany.
