SYNOPSIS: In Vienna on Thursday, the four-day East-West Trade Congress completed its business. The conference was reported to be the largest of the kind ever held. Two-hundred delegates from five continents were in attendance. The conference was co-sponsored by the Danube European Institute of Vienna and the Stanford Research Institute of the United States.
Speakers at the conference emphasised that trade between Eastern Europe and the West had developed more than world trade as a whole. Delegates pointed out that some eastern European countries had made inroads on areas, such as Latin America, that only western countries had previously explored in trade.
It was proposed that the delegates consider the establishment of an International Industrial Trade Cooperation Centre. Such an organisation could seek solutions to the problems of marketing, trade discrimination and import restrictions. The Centre, it was said, could greatly increase the already favourable trade relations between East and West.
