Abstract:

This workshop conference had two principal purposes 1 to consider and discuss practicable ideas for restricting West-to-East resource flows, while limiting undesirable side effects on the Western Alliance, the international financial system, the peoples of Eastern Europe, and the Third World and 2 to identify issues in this broad area that may warrant further study and analysis. Section I of this Note distills from the oral discussion its principal implications with respect to policy and research, such as reducing access by Eastern economies to foreign credits, collective action by Western Europe, Japan, and United States, and looking at several issues relating to the gas pipeline that may warrant further research. Section II contains a digest of the meeting based mainly on rapporteur notes of the oral discussion.
