Time for Action - Foreign Policy Committee

Letters are needed NOW in support of foreign economic aid. The League support position on economic aid is part of the 1966-68 Foreign Policy Current Agenda Item: "Support of U.S. policies to promote world trade and development, while maintaining a sound U.S. economy." Relevant aspects of the League position include:

... Support of sound and adequate development assistance programs i.e. programs which are long-range, adequately financed, effectively coordinated, and which emphasize cooperative efforts by developed countries, and maximum self-help by developing countries.

... Encouragement of private investment in the less developed countries , as an important component of U.S. development assistance programs.

... Maintenance of a sound, dynamic U.S. economy as essential to world development.
