§ Mr. Eden
On the basis of the decisions so far taken by the Council, the 1191 main task of the Organisation for European Economic Co-operation in the coming months will be to review and report on the economic position of member countries and their prospects in the period following the end of the European recovery programme last April. The report, which will also cover the United States and Canada, is expected later this year.
Special attention is being paid to the expansion of production and to internal financial stability, on which a group of independent experts will shortly report. The organisation will also endeavour to maintain, and if possible extend, measures taken for the liberalisation of trade, and will complete the agreement to continue the European Payments Union.
