    Background: M.J.F. Deniau, the member of the Common Market commission responsible for Development Aid, arrived in Dakar, Senegal recently to discuss the forthcoming second Yaounde convention. After being welcomed at the airport by M. Jean Collin, the Senegalese Minister for Finance and Economic Affairs, M. Deniau met journalists and later President of the Republic, M. Senghor.

    Senegal is one of the 18 African and Malagasy French-speaking states with associate membership of the European Community.

    M. Deniau stressed the importance of a joint position in view of the signing of the second Yaounde Convention next January 1, which is the framework for the associate status of Senegal.

    He pointed out that the possible membership of Great Britain of the Common Market would mean similar associate membership of English-speaking African states. This means that the present associated states must say exactly what they do and do not want.

    Regarding the gap between the developed and the developing countries, M. Deniau said that most importance must be placed on general industrialisation, not on specific projects.

    Later, M. Deniau attended a dinner in his honour given by President Senghor and his wife. M. Deniau and President Senghor exchanged views on Senegal's relations with the Common Market.
