WASHINGTON. June 18. 
MINISTERS representing most 
of ihc major industrialised 
countries began three days of 
talks here loday nhirh are 
likely lo be crucial in deter- 
mining whether an inter- 
national trade agreement can 
be reached by the Bnun econo- 
mic summii in a month’s time. 

According to Mr. Robert 
Strauss, the U.S. Special Trade 
Representative, the chief aim 
or the negotiations is lo nar- 
row the outstanding differ cures 
separating the parties. 

Both U.S. and European 
sources stress that it will nut 
prove easy to resolve the most 
difficult slicking points — par- 
ticularly the questions of 
access for agricultural pro- 
ducts. subsidies paid to domes- 
tic industries by national 
Goi'ernmenls. and “safeguard " 
measures that might be applied 
selectively against the products 
of another country. 

Tbe U.S. would still like to 
reaeb a final agreement by the 
July 15 deadline set by Mr. 
Strauss to strengthen ihe 
deliberations of the seven 
Heads of State, plus ihe Euro- 
pean Community, who are due 
to meet in Bonn three days 
later.

Backing 


But if that goal is not met, 
Mr. Strauss, who is acutely 
conscious of the Tact that any 
trade pact must be acceptable 
lo the U.S. Congress, may pass 
the mailer to the Heads of 
Slate in Bonn for final 
resolution. 

All the parlies generally 
agree that ihe trade pact must 
have political backing at the 
highest level to heighten its 
international acceptance and 
to act as a cohesive influence 
when officials bargain over the 
fine prim laler in the year. 

Besides the three outstand- 
ing issues of agriculture, sub-

Ministers this week will be 
discussing differences in 
customs valuations. 

They will also discuss the 
state of the steel industry 
worldwide. including the 
possible creation of ah Inter-

measures for balance of pay- 
ments purposes and the 
demands of the developing

ANTHONY POCSKY 





BY ROGER BOYES 


THE SOVIET UNION has issued 
one of its sharpest and most 
detailed attacks on Presidenr 
Jimmy Carter's foreign policy, 
accusing the U.S. of seriously 
threatening world peace. 

It came in an authoritative 
5. 500- word editorial published in 
all of the main Soviet newspapers 
at the weekend, including ihe 
Communist Parly organ Pravda. 

The attack had ttvo principal 
targets: President Carter’s recent 
speech at Annapolis naval 
academy outlining his policy 
towards Moscow, and the accusa- 
tion b> Mr. Zhigmew Brsezinski. 
the President’s National Security 
Adviser, during a visit to China 
last month, that the Soviet Union 


was violating “what v.-a« 
called ihe code of detente." 

Some Administration ofn- 
said the editorial, were o-*. 
ing so obsessed with the Se 
threat lhat they del i be;- 
wooed China. 

“ They al<o forget tiui 
Chinese leadership is plays r 
game of its own.” it’ ; 
“ Soviet/U.S. confrontation, 
even better, war — that is 
cherised dream uf Peking." 

Mr. Carter, said the edit>» 
had confused ralber than <. 
fied relations between the s" 
powers by his speech at Ann 
iis. His remarks had been - 
fully studied in Moscow, it •? 
but his policy was based <i

Mr. Carter’s human rights 
campaign was described as 
“disastrous for mutual confi- 
dence " and the U.S. was 
accused of pursuing an interven- 
tionist, neocoloniatist policy 
towards Africa, especially in 
Zaire. Russia and Cuba have 
repeatedly denied involvement 
in the Zaire fighting. 

Although unsigned, analysts in 
London said the editorial bore 
the dear imprint of Mr. 
Alexander Bovin, a senior Soviet 
commentator on V S. affairs, who 
is believed to be close to the 
Soviet President, Mr. Leonid 
Brezhnev- The editorial was 
clvarly approved at the highest 
level within the Kremlin.

Budget deficit measures 


By Our Own Correspondent 


ATHENS. June IS. 


A SERIES of measures to 
stabilise the economy and fight 
'mflaiiuu have been announced 
by the .Greek Government. Mr 
Constantine Mitsotakis. Co- 
ordination Minister, said in 
nation, now running at about 
35 per cent, was the Dumber 
one enemy. The measures were 
intended to bring ii down to 
last year's level of 12.S per cent. 

Mr. Mitsotakis said tite 
Government was setting the 
example by reducing overall 
Budget expenditure this year by 
15 to 20 per cent and slashing 
the public investments budget 
by 10 per cent. 

The cost of public utilities, 
water, electricity, telecommuni- 
cations and urban transport, 
would be frozen until the end 
of the year. 

To help channel deposits back 
„ banks, interest rales on 
deposits are increased by be- 
iween 2.5 and 3 per cent. Basic 
interest rates on simple savings 
deposits with commercial banks 
will go up to a maximum of 10.5 
per cent- and fixed term deposits 
will go up to 11 and 12.5 per cent, 
depending on the period for 
which they are deposited. 

Interest on bank credits is inr 
creased by 1 per cent and rates 
on long-term loans thus go up 
to 12 per cent per annum. In- 
terest on short-term lending for 
working capital is increased to 
between 15.5 and IS per cent, 
interest on export loan* remains 
unchanged at 9.5 per cent. 

Bank of Greece rediscount 
rate is raised from 11 per cent to 
14 per cent. To encourage in- 
dividuals to invest in the capital 
market, the Government has in- 
creased the tax-free limit on divi- 
dends received from company 
shares from drachmas 60,000 
fSl.666) to drachmas 90.000 
t $2,500 1 per recipient investor 
and from drachmas 15.000 (8436) 
drachmas 25,000 (S694) per 
paying-out company. 

The measures also include a 
decrease in company tax rates 
by 2 to 6 per cent for those 
companies which increase their 
share capital through the Stock 
Exchange.

THE POLITICAL crisis set off hy 
M. Leo Tmdemans’ threat to 
resign as Prime Minister of 
Belgium last Thursday appeared 
tn be well on the way io a -ulu- 
lion this evening after a •'■‘ee fr- 
ond of intensive consultations 
between members of the 
country’s four-party coa'.iiion 
Government. 

M. Tindemans said this after 
noon that he was satisfied that 
solutions had been found to 
differences in the Government 
over plans to put into effeer a 
scries of measures aimed at deal- 
ing with pressiny economic 
problems and the iarae deficit on 
tb-' national BudaeL 

While he did nm disclose the 
exact measures agreed, he said 


that they would be submitted to 
Parliament at the same time as 
the Government's intricate pro- 
posals for greater regional 
autonomy in the Herairh and 
French-speaking communities. 

In addition, the discussions 
appear to have produced a com- 
promise concerning demands by 
M. Tindemans and bis Social 
Christian Party that the Govern- 
ment be granted temporary 
special powers to legislate the 
1979 Budget by decree. 

The results of the weekend’s 
negotiations will be formally 
presented to the leaders of the 
Government's four parties to- 
morrow If they are accepted. 
M. Tindems.Es is expected to 
withdraw his offer to resign.

Rebuff for S- At&ca 


Sithole against 


reopening 


political issues 


A free interbank money 
market is to be created to adapt 
the Greek banking system to 
EEC conditions. 


By Our Own Correspondent 
SALISBURY. June IS. 
RHODESIA’S Transitional Gov- 
ernment would not exchange the 
internal settlement for the 
Anglo-American plan for all- 
party talks, the Rev Nrtabaningi 
Sithole said in an interview 
published here toda>. 

Mr. Sithole. who is a member 
of the four-man Executive 
Council, was commenting on the 
suggestion by Dr. David Owen, 
the British Foreign Secretary, 
lhat an all-party conference 
including the Patriotic Front 
guerrilla alliance, couid take 
place next month. 

Mr. Sithole said the council 
was not prepared to set aside 
the settlement to accommodate 
Mr. Joshua Kkovno and Mr. 
Robert Mugabe, the externaily- 
based leaders of the Patriotic 
Front. 

“ As far as we arc* concerned, 
the political problems have been 
resolved. We still cannot see 
that any good purpose can be 
served by the talks, if these are 
intended to reopen issues that 
have already been resolved by 
the Salisbury agreement.” 

The Rhodesian military com- 
mand reported the death of 
nine black civilians, including a 
tribal chief, through guerrilla 
action. Six guerrillas and one 
” collaborator ’’ wore killed. An 
elderly white couple were killed 
on their farm. 5o miles from 
Bulawayo, by guerrillas who also 
killed a black empiovee and 
burned buildings. 


Left-wing leader 


held during 


Peruvian voting 


By Hugh O’Shaughnessy 

LIMA. June IS. 

A SHADOW was cast over 
national elections today when 
General Leonidas Rodriguez, an 
important figure of the Peruvian 
left, was arrested as he was 
leaving a polling station this 
morning after voting for the 
planned constituent assembly. 

General Rodriguez, leader of 
the Revolutionary Party (PSRj, 
and formerly a close collaborator 
in the radical Government of the 
late General Juan Velasco, has 
been in hiding since his deporta- 
tion was ordered last month by 
the Government of General 
Francisco Morales Bermudez. i. 

The PSR says that the arrest! 


General Hendrick van den 
Bergh. the retiring head of 
the South African Govern* 
menlVs Bureau of State Security 
(BOSS), has been " refused a 
\isa to visit the U.S., Quentin 
Peel reports from .Johannes- 
burg. Quoting. Rapport, the 
Afrikaans Sunday, newspaper, 
he says that no reason has 
been given. 


Alliance continues 


The Free Democrat Party 
(FDP) in the state of Hesse has 
voted in favour of continued 
alliance with tbe SoelaJ Demo- 
crats <SPD>. Jonathan Carr 
reports from Bonn. The vote is 
a victory for Herr Hans 
Dietrich tiensrher. the FDP 
chairman and Foreign Minister. 
He feared that if the FDP 
retreated from clear support of 
the SPD after recent electoral 
setbacks it could lose all 
credibility with the voters at 
the state elections in October.

General Morales bos called the 
elections for a 100-man con- 
stituent assembly which would

civilian Government in general 
elections to be held in 1980. 

Wilb the Peruvian economy 
passing through a severe crisis

severe deflationary policies in

Franjieh ultimatum to Phalange 


BY IHSAN HI JAZI 


BEIRUT. June IS. 


MR- SULEIMAN FRANJIEH. 
the former President of Lebanon, 
stiil mourning the death of his 
eldest son Tony at the bands of 
rival Christian militiius, has 
served an ultimatum on members 
of tbe Phalange Party in northern 
Lebanon to quit the party or 
leave the area altogether, and 
thereby increased the chances of 
further clashes. 

He set the end oF this month 
as the final deadline for them 
to make up their minds, promis- 
ing that no harm would come 
to them before then. So Mr. 
Franjieh’s warnin’ was read out 
today at church services in vil- 
lages and towns In tbe north. 

Mr. Tony Fraujieb. his wife 
and their baby daughter were 
killed along with 30 others in 
an attack by militias of the 
Phalange Party against the town 
of Ihdcn. about SO miles north- 
east nf here la«t Wednesday. 

The former President served 
the ultimatum an Saturday when 


representatives and priests from 
54 villages m the north culled on 
him at bis hometown of Zgbortu. 
not far from lhden, to extend 
their condolences. 

In his angry remarks, which 
were on the front p a « P of most 
newspapers here today, Mr. Fran- 
jieh described the Phalange 
Party as “ evil '" and a “ microbe 
which is seeking to sow discord " 
among the people of the north. 

Tnc ultimatum was interp rete ^ 
by observers us indirating that 
the bunt for ihe Phafanffi5ts in 
the north will begin when ihe 
deadline expires. 

As many us 50 people, all 
Christians, have been killed 
already in vendetta attacks lo 
the wake of Tony Franjieb's 
murder. Several hundred people 
have fied their villeces and have 
takea reruae at Hie mountain 
resort nf Miryatah where Mr. 
Rgshid Karami. a former Prime 
Minister, who recently reached a 
reconciliation with tbe former 


President, has his summer resi- 
dence. 


They called an Mr. Karami, a 
prominent Moslem leader, to 
intercede with Mr. Franjieh on 
their behalt 

The Franjiehs and the majority 
of the Phalange Party members 
belong to tbe Mardnlte com- 
munity, the largest Christian 
denomination in Lebanon. 


Reuter adds: About 700 men 
belong to mainly-christian 
militias in south Lebanon have 
said they will shoot any members 
of the UN force who attempt to 
take over positions evacuated by 
Israeli troops last week. 

A UN spokesman said he was 
confident that tbe UN force could 
overcome the problem without 
resorting to arms.

to raise 
iron ore exports to China 


BY JOHN HOFFMANN 


THE LIKELIHOOD ijf sisnlficant 
new 1 sales of Australian iron ore 
ta China is very strong, accord- 
-. ln £Y t0- AustraJian officials in 
Pek f°g- The forecast was made 
on the eve of the arrival of an 
Australian -Government spon- 
sored iron -and steel mission for 
a. three week visit. 

--Members of the mission, due 
an Peking late tonight, represent 
most of Australia's major iron 
ore miners and steel producers. 

High hopes for further iron 
ana steel sales to China emerged 
several weeks ago during a visit 
oy the Australian Minister for 
Industry and Commerce, Mr. 
Lynch. 

He was assured in talks with 
metallurgies 1 and trade officials 
1 .95 ina would need greater 
quantities of imported iron ore 


PEKING, June IS. 


to support its plan to increase 
annual steel production from 

iook tomies to ®° m tonnes by 
l9o5. 

In the 1977 calendar vi-ar 
Australia sold- to China about 
3m tonnes of ore worth m» re 
than S30m, The Au-slralun 
Minister for Trade and Rcsoun-cs 
told Parliament recently that 
this figure was expected to be 
4m tonnes in 1978. 

In Peking this weekend the 
Australian Ambassador, Mr. C. 0 
Woodard, said Chinese imporis 
of iron, steel and ore wen; 
already at their highest levels. 

Australia will be in a 
secure position to press for 
further orders for iron ant! 
finished si eel as well as iron ore. 
China is building ten new steel 
plants as part of its modernisa- 


tion and industrialisation pro- 
gramme, but its demand for 
finished and special steels will 
lag behind production for some 
years. 

Already Australia counts as 
one of China's most important 
sources of iron ore. China bos 
vast resources of its own but of 
a low grade, but high-grade Aus- 
tralian ore. with its iron content 
of about 60 per cent, has been 
mixed with local ore to upgrade 
it. 

The proportion of Australian 
ore going into the furnaces is 
believed to be betweeu 10 and 
20 per cent. These figures sug- 
gest a potential demand for at 
least 10m tonnes a year of high- 
grade imported ore when China 
reaches its annual production 
goal of 60m tonnes. 


Greece seeks Arab investment 


BY OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT 


ATHENS, June IS. 


JIORE than. 100 leading Arab 
bankers and investors, lawyers 
and . economists are expected to 
parucipate in the first Greek- 
Arab investment meeting 
CGA1M) to be held in Athens 
next week. . 

The purpose of the meeting, 
which is under the auspices of 
Mr. Constantine Mitsotakis. the 
Greek Minister of Co-ordination, 
is to explain to Arab participants 
the opportunities that Greece 
offers to Arab investors in the 
various sectors of the Greek 
economy and also to point out 
the favourable investment con- 
ditions aod incentives available. 

Prof. Ioannis Georgakis, Greek 
Ambassador at large for the 
Arab countries and chairman of 
tbe Hellenic Chamber for 


Development and Economic 
Co-operation with the Arab 
Countries (CDC) which is 
organising the meeting, said that 
economic profiles of about 70 
specific investment projects .in 
Greece will be presented to the 
Arab participants. 

These projects represented 
investments totalling some S2bn. 
They include several projects by 
Government-controlled agencies 
such as the $640m petro- 
chemicals complex planned by 
the Hellenic Industrial and 
Mining Investment Company. 

Professor Georgakis said the 
largest number of tbe projects 
were in industry, including 
alumina and asbestos plants, but 
tbere were also some interesting 
projects in tourism, agriculture 


fin tbe processing of fruits and 
vegetables) as well as in 
shipping. 

Mr. Walter Bucbbolz, director 
general of the CDC, said the 
organisers' aim was to act as 
matchmaker between Greek com- 
panies seeking Arab capital 
cither through equity participa- 
tion or through loans and 
potential Arab investors partici- 
pating in the meeting. 

Mr. Buchholz said the Arab 
participants who have confirmed 
they will attend tbe GAIM come 
from all of the major oil-produc- 
ing Arab countries and particu- 
larly from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait 
Bahrein and Egypt. There were 
also participants from the United 
Arab Emirates, Jordan, Syria, 
Lebanon, Oman and Libya.

Japan may 
soon use 
tankers for 
storage 


Fraser gets

SE Asia

28th June, 1978. 



AGREEMENT WAS almost 
reached last week between the 
Japanese Congress and tanker 
owners on the use of super- 
tankers for storage. 

The move is designed to 
remove excess capacity from 
Japanfe& oil tanker fleets in an 
attempt to improve cargo rates 
for owners. 

Tanker owners are to be asked 
to tender |n the early part or 
July, with tbe first 10 very large 
crude carries lifting their car- 
goes in September. The follow- 
ing 10 suggested In the proposals 
for storage ^nay then enter 
storage in October. Hire for 
storage would \be at a rate of 
Y40Q per deadweight ton. 

In tbe Gulf, 47\5ra dwt tons are 
now idle or expected to be de- 
commissioned. Brokers said last 
week the figure was now 
approaching a record high. 

The volume of tanker tonnage 
heading for the scrapyards 
stowed last week, as a result 
of the bottleneck in yards in 
Taiwan, where vessels were 
queueing-up to enter harbour. 
Scrap prices have declined and 
brokers are not optimistic of an 
early, solution to the bottleneck 
Rates for oil tankers chartered 
from the Gulf remained un- 
changed last week. Worldscale 
16.75 was the best that was 
reported for ultra large crude 
carriers and Worldscale 20 for 
VLCCs. The use of smaller ships 
has not materially altered with 

110. 000- ton cargoes moving to 
Quebec at Worldscale 40. 

Dubai has been the only 
market to bold up witb cargoes 
covered for Eastern and Western 
destinations. A 110,000-ton vessel 
was -fixed at Worldscale 42i for 
a voyage to the West, and a 

52.000- ton cargo was moved to 
Japan at Worldscale 57* 

■Inquiries from the Mediter- 
ranean were slightly more abun- 
dant Ships did not find it too 
difflcuit to obtain cargoes Iasi 
week. The main destination was 
the U.S. Cargoes for Wesi 
African loadings have been 
scarce, with few fixtures 
reported 

Most of the U.S. 'bound cargo 
charters came from New York 
GaRjraith Wrightson, Londun 
brokers, said that conditions on 
the London market picked-up on 
Friday, but there was no hope 
that - the - conditions would con- 
tinue .an upward recovery In 
charter rates. 

On the sale and purchase 
markets, prices for bulk carriers 
hardened towards the end of last 
week. Tbe best example quoted 
by London brokers was tbe 
reported sale of the British flag 
bulk carrier. “Gunard Cham- 
pion," 24,646 dwt, built in 
1973.- . This was sold for 
US&Am. compared with the 
price for a sister ship last month 
of mm. 

On the dry cargo market, rates 
have, eased, although not across 
all vessel sizes. In the Atlantic, 
a 60,000 cargo of grain was fixed 
fixed for a voyage from the Gulf 
to Europe at $6-75, 75c down from 
peak. levels. Rates were slightly 
better in the Far East 


Cranes for Taiwan 

Contracts valued at S6m for 
manufacture and erection of four 
dockside container handling 
cranes have been won by Canron 
of Montreal, Robert Glbbens re- 
ports. The cranes are destined 
for' Kaohslung, Taiwan's largest 
port, and will replace others 
. destroyed in a. typhoon last year. 
;Tha contracts are due for com- 
pletion tills year.

Morocco to 
cut imports 


By Our Own Correspondent 

RABAT, June IS 
THE DECISION by King Hassan 
of Morocco taken early this 
month to slash imports by 20 
per cent in the nexl three years, 
takes effect tomorrow when 
restrictions are imposed on the 
import of some 500 products half 
of which will be simply banned. 

Prohibited imports now in- 
clude a variety of foodstuffs, 
confectionery, household appli- 
ances, clothing, papers, cars, 
motorcycles and cycles. Many 
of these items arc made or 
assembled in Morocco. Others 
( notably foods) are considered 
luxuries. 

• The Export Credits Guarantee 
Department has agreed to 
guarantee the repayment and 
funding of a S15m line of credit 
to be made available by Samuel

half and for Lloyds Bank inter- 
national and Lazard Brothers, to

merce Exterieur of Morocco

DUTCH CONSTRUCTION com- 
panies have started lo look 
beyond the Middle East for new 
market opportunities. Many 
major building contracts still 
have several years to run to 
completion and the largest one 
yet, worth about Fl lfihn {St. Sbn ) 
'for a university complex at 
Riyadh in Saudi \rabia, has still 
to be awarded. But afie-- only a 
few years of hecue activity as the 
oil states spent their’ newly 
acquired wealth, tbs Dutch have 
begun IQ search for new oppor- 
tunities. 

These lie in the development 
of new geographical areas and 
equipment and techniques to 
handle new i .-sf.s. Deep sea min- 
ing and dred-^inj vill be one of 
the growth ares* cf the next 10 
years if thp inve-tment activities 
of Holland's building companies 
arc anything to gu by. 

The Middle Ea-t boom years 
were a period n; strong growth 
for companies Mich as Hol- 
landsche Boron. whoso turnover 
rose from El Tim ($45flm) t" 
FI 2.44bn (‘M.Ibm in the five 
years to 1977. whii* Stevin re- 
corded an increase from FI S91m 
to Fl 1.79bn. Bi 1P77 these two 

companies wen' achieving ahout 
HO per cent «if turnover ouLside 
Holland, much of it in the 
countries around tru* Gulf. Bos 
Kalis We.stciin>i«jr mnde 70 per 
cent of its turnover abroad. 

The value of individual orders 
increased. A Fl lbn ord.'r to 
dredge an industrial harbour nt 
Jubail was wnq hv Stevin, Bos 
Kalis and Zanen Versiosr. This 
was topped hv a Fl l.-ibn order 
nlaced wirh Ggein for 32 tower 
blocks at Darn mam. Saudi 
Arabia, while Ballast-Nedam 
broke all rccnrds with a Fl 4.7bn 
order for a number of lownships 
in Saudi Arabia. 

Isolated large orders may still 
be won but the boom period is 
clearly over and governments 
are seeking an increasing share 
of local participation. With the 
notable exception of Saudi 
Arabia and the United Arab 
Emirates many Middle East 
enuo tries have been forced to 
nut a brake on spending. Com- 
petition from countries such as 


South Korea. Taiwan. Greece, 
and Jugoslavia has reduced 
margins. Executives of the 
Dutch construction companies 
admit they cannot compete with 
the prices quoted by many of 
these countries whose workers 
are often prepared to accept 
semi-military discipline in their 
work camps. Dutch employees 
have higher than average expec- 
tations when it comes to home 
leave and salaries. 

The Dutch contractors are, 
therefore, resigned to seeing the 
less complex projects go to tbe 
less sophisticated companies 
often from newly developing 
countries. Where managerial 
skills, technology and the logis- 
tics are more demanding, how- 
ever, the Dutch feel they still 


management of tbe completed 
contract instead of simply being 
called in to tarry out the 
engineering work. 

Ogem sees projects like this as 
the export of management know- 
how. Part of the attractiveness 
of Dutch contractors to Middle 
East customers is their ability to 
arrange the back-up services 
needed to carry out these pro- 
jects. Ogem has its own trans- 
port division but turned to the 
largest Dutch shipping line. 
Nedlloyd, to arrange the trans- 
port of many components to Rot- 
terdam by road and barge and 
then to Dammam by sea-going 
vessel. Shortly after signing its

ties. riles the Dammam order as 
a case in point. In wbat the

stant shuttle over IB months to

ing site to meet the tight con-

this nor only require tbe ship- 
ment of bulk items — Ogem also 
has to watch over the details and 
ensure there are pencils in the 
desks.

that it is studying the possible 
integration of some of its activi- 
ties with another Dutch company. 
HVA. HVA has interests in con- 
sultancy. management, engineer- 
ing and contracting in the agro- 
industrial sector. 


Stevin hopes to find more work 
in North and South America now 
that the Middle East boom is 
past its peak. Despite the poten- 
tial market in tbe U.S., Dutch 
contractors Feel they have been 
unfairly excluded by restrictions 
placed on the activities of foreign 
companies. They bave responded 
by going into joint ventures with 
U.S. companies. Bos Kalis has 
taken 25 per cent stake, the 
maximum allowed by the U.S.. 
in a joint venture, called Zapata 
Westminster Dredging Inc. with 


Zapata Corporation. It hopes to 
build a fleet of dredging vessels 
it can use in U.S. waters Ballast- 
Xedain has a 25 per cent etake 
in the North American Trailing 
Company. Ballast is also build- 
ing up its operations in selected 
African countries such as Egypt 
and Nigeria and in South 
America. Adriaan Volker has also 
turned to the U.S. and has a 25 
per cent stake in Eagle Dredging, 
together with the U.S. Dredging 
Company C. F. Bean. 

The development of new 
equipment opens up new markeis 
for tbe contractors. Their favour- 
able level of profits mean financ- 
ing is not a major problem. 

Stevin recently placed an order 
for a semi-^ubmersible self- 
elevating curter-drodger which 
will cost FIs 200m. It will be 
built at a Dutch yard and is due 
for delivery in September 1979. 
Stevin sees this as tbe first of 
a new generatinn of sea-going 
dredgers which can work in wave 
beichls nf 3 to 4 metres. 

The eishr-Iegged dredser can 
reach to demhs nr 32 metres and 
will he able »n tackle hard soil 
conditions. Its applications are 
in sea-mining, pipe-line trench 
making 3iul harbour excavation 
on inaccessible coasts. Adriaan 
Volker. too has hush hopes of 
a new technique which it has 
developed for covering pipelines 
on the sea-bed. 

Bns Kalis is a partner in a 
combined venture with Lockheed 
Missiles and Space. Amoco 
Minerals and the Royal Dutch 
Shell subsidiary Billiton Inter- 
national Metals, to mine man- 
ganese nnduies in the Pacific. 
Ocean Minerals expects to start 
deep-sea mining in an area 
between the Bay of California 
and Hawaii in the mid-1980s. 


Despite the fact that much of 
present day Holland owes its 
existence to the precursors of 
these construction groups, oppor- 
tunities at home remain fimtied. 
The slow-down in oonulartion 
growth and increased concern for 
the environment have led to 
shelving of several ambitious 
land-reclamation plans so the 
Dutch will probably remain a 
permanent feature on the inter- 
national contracting scene. 



Philips’ new dictation sy stem features 
the amazing new Mini-cassette 2; the first 
cassette with built-in, re-markable indexing 
strips. One on each side. The strip is a 
■specially-developed laminate on which you 
can make marks as you dictate simply by 
pressing a button. And they are erasable. 
So you can use the cassette indefinitely 



But that’s just one advantage of the unique facility we call 
Visual Mark & Find: Marks can be made in two separate rows: 
one for dictation passages, the other to identify special 
messages for your secretary: Messages you can record at any 
time, even during dictation. So there's no need for hand-written 
notes; and no separate strips to fill in. 

As the marks are made, special tones are simultaneously 
recorded on the tape. And with our new machines, designed to 
recognize these tones, any recorded item can be found - quickly 
and accurately. 


The system comprises two new 
dictation/transcription machines, 302 
and 303, and a new transcriber 304. 
Weve also included our famous pocket 
memos 185 and 9 5. transcriber 186, ✓ 

and our self-contained, remote- * 
controlled 260 dictation system. * * 
These and other units / & 
from our previous Mini- / 


/ 


cassette dictation equipment range are corny 
patible with Mini-cassette 2 for recording , 

and playback- Which is the sort of / y 

thoughtfulness you’d expect from / ^ 


ihe world's leading supplier of 
dictation equipment 



Simpiy years ahead.

component groups 
8 % profit margin 


BY TERRY D0DSW0RTH. MOTOR INDUSTRY CORRESPONDENT 


THE TOP TEN Tjk nioior com- 
ponent groups earned an averaye 
profit margin on sales of S.2 per 
cent in their past financial year, 
according lo a new survey. 

The Study, prepared ’by ihe 
Jordans research organisation, 
shows that the ten. which are 
all public, quoted concerns, 
earned better profits on average 
than the leading private compo- 
nent manufacturers. These had 
an average margin of 6-7 P ,?r 
cent. 

They also did far better inan 
■j number of leading foreign* 
controlled organisations, w-i «*? 
them owned by U.S.-based 
groups. 

According to the .Iordans 
figures, ihe lop (en In this gfoup 
earned a margin of only 0.7 per 
cent, on sales. 

The poor perFnrm-dnceF nf the 
foreign-based companies may be 
partly explained by the pre- 
ponderance of tyre manutac- 
lurcpi in the sauipie. Tyre 


producers have been going 
through a particularly tough 
patch in the last two years, 
many of them slipping into 
deficit. 

Miche’in. the French group, 
has proved a striking exception 
to this rule, however, making a 
margin of 11.6 per cent an sales 
in the year to the end of 1976. 

Jordans rates Michel in's per- 
formance, which embraces a 
jump in profits from £3m to 
£>4ni in three years, as “excep- 
tional" and comments: “Through 
its fast profit and sales growth 
it has now established itself as 
the leading foreign-owned com- 
ponent company in the UK." 

Cummins, another foreign- 
based concern, manufacturing 
diesel engines, also has a sound 
record. Tn 1976 it earned profits 
of £S.3m at a margin on sales 
of Il.S per cent. 

By contrast. General Motors 
reported profits of only £3-Sm 
aud a margin of -.7 per cent. 


Jordans says, however,. . that 
the figures df foreign-owned. 
subsidiaries have less- validity 
than those of UK-quoted com- 
paaies. .. .-'■ _^y 

The parent company- might oe 
levying hidden management 
charges or siphoning ofl- profits, 
through its prices on supplies,^ 
Imports from the parent 'wm*: 
p«ny might also be affected Tiy 
foreign exchange fluctuations. 

The best performer among the: 
public companies was Renbld., 
the chain manufacturer, whfch 
had profits of £14m and a return, 
of 12.2 per cent. . . .• ; 

Next was Associated Engm- 
eering, the precision engine 
parts producer, with profits ot 
tffclrn • 

Among the larger private 
producers. Cannon Rubber .had 
the best results, with profits: of 
£1.2m and a return o£ 12 J. per 
cent on a turnover of £9.Qm, 
covering a 17-month .trading 
period. - " ‘ 'll

LEYLAND CARS has eomi'leied 
one of the key elements in it’ 

plan to expand production .f Ihe 

Land-Rover and Ranee Rover 
with the introduction of :• new 
assembly track for ihe Rover VS 
engine, writes Terry DodswiuTii. 

Capacity on the new line, built 
at the A cocks Green planr. head- 
quarters of ihe Rover engine and 
transmission yroup. will he 
about 110.000 units a year nn ,i 
double shifi basis. This is ahnut 
twice the capability . of the uld 
line. 

Lcyland has injected £3m 
worth of new investment into 
A cocks Green fur the expansion. 


which will give Rover a well- 
pruven engine for both its car 
and four-wheel drive ranges. 

\n particular, this will allow 
output of the Range Rover, 
powered only by the VS al 
present, to be expanded to meet 
the high rate of demand. 

Improvement in engine output 
will now be followed by further 
investment in the assembly lines 
at Rover's Solihull plant 
Total output of Land-Rovers 
and Range Rovers is now run- 
ning at about 50.000 units a year, 
but the group Intends to increase 
this to more than 100.000 
vehicles in the next few years. 


fae Hirers Is that the new round 
of rises will be moderate 
enough to have no harmful 
impact on the present ^tron 
rate of sales growth. Ford, l 
particular, has long waitln 
lists in any case. 

Examples of the New Vau~»

need bank managers 
who understand 
iei 


When inflation changed the rules of financial 
management, it also changed the relationship 
between companies and their banks. Today 
companies look tu their banks as never before for 
co-operation and ad v ice. 

So Williams & Glvn's encourages its managers 
to go out 3 nd visit customers on their home 
ground. In this way, the managers obtain a first- 
hand understanding < >f the business that no 
balance sheet could ever give them. 

You’U find Williams & Glyn’s is more alert in 
other respects too. We can give you a decision, 
even on a major proposition, more quickly 
because there is no elaborate hierarchy within the 
bank to delay it : the chain of command is short 
and direct. Wouldn’t you like a bank that 
understands the way we live now? 

Call in at your local Williams & Glyn’s 
branch. Or write to: Marketing Development 
Office, Williams & Glyn’s Bank Ltd., New 
London Bridge House. 25 London Bridge Street, 
London SEI 9SX. 


Five ways to 
more profitable business 

1 Working Capital 

Williams & Glyns managers can advise 
you on the most suitable ways of 
providing working capital for your 
particular business. 

2 Instalment Credit 
Through a subsidiary company, 

. St. Margaret's Trust Ltd., Williams & 
Glyn’s can provide instalment credit 
for the purchase of goods or equipment. 

3 Quick Decisions 

The shorter chain of command at 
Williams & Glyn's ensures you of aquick 
response. 

4 Cash Flow Control 

W illiams & Glyn's specialists are always 
ready to help with advice. 

5 Medium-term Loans

loans from 2-7 years for the purchase of 
new plan t and equipment, etc.

Aircraft sprinklers call 


A CALL fur large passenger 
aircraft to be fitted with 
sprinkler systems was made 
yesterday by Mr. Brian Powell, 
station officer in charge of the 
Carlisle fire nation. 

This 'would give the aircraft 
protection at all times, which 


was important as aircraft fires 
were bard to fight because of 
access restrictions. 

The system envisaged by Mr. 
Powell is a small-bore, high- 
pressure piping ring round all 
the main decks. It would be 
fuelled in flight by water from 
the aicraft’s own supply.

Put houses 
on market 
says survey 

By Christo pher Dunn 
HOME OWNERS are urged to 
put their houses ou .the market 
as soon as they think of moving 
in a survey of the UK Droperty 
market by the Royal Institution 
of Chartered Surveyors. 

This would help to reduce the 
shortage of houses for sale and 
prevent bouse prices rising said 
Mr. John Thomas, president of 
the Institution. 

But prices were beginning to 
stabilise. New homes showed the 
biggest price Increases. 1 

Many people were carrying 
out improvements rather than 
buying another house. 

“Ensure that the expenditure 
results in an increase in the 
property value of at least the 
cost of the work.” Mr. Thomas 
said.

Virtually simultaneously. 

And if any ones busy, it keeps trying 
regularly till it finally gets through. 

It will even sort out your messages in

With private lines, the ADX can transmit

or receive across the globe in seconds.lt works 
almost as quickly with the public telex system. 

Banks and brokers use it, of course. 

But so do car, paper and chemical companies,

LABOUR N'EWSil 



new 



challenge 

By Our Sheffield Correspondent 
SHEFFIELD, June IS. 
LEFT-WING coalfields, led by 
Yorkshire miners president Mr 
Arthur Scargill, will . block 
attempts to raise extra cash for 
the National Union of Mine- 
workers if its president Mr. Joe 
Gormley and his moderate 
majority on the executive again 
reject calls for the “democrati- 
sation " of the executive. 

. Mr. Scargill, who has clashed 
bitterly with Mr. Gormley in 
recent weeks, yesterday spelt out 
his ultimatum for the HUM 
annual conference in Torquay in 
three weeks. 

- 41 If they support our resolu- 
tion for more democracy we will 
■support their resolution for 
higher financial contributions to 
go to the national union,” he 
said. 

But if moves to get a more 
democratic voting system on the 
NUM national executive were 
. again defeated, Mr. Gormley 
would have a better chance of 
“ frying snowballs ” than getting 
the extra cash the national union 
so badly needs. 

The Yorkshire call for more 
democracy will be discussed at 
the conference before the reso- 
lution seeking a 50 per cent 
increase in weekly contributions. 
As changes of rule, both will 
require a two-thirds majority to 
go through. 

Small areas 

Yorkshire has the support of 
South Wales and possibly Scot- 
land and other Left-wing coal- 
fields, so Mr. Scargill could be 
able to stop the necessary 
majority being achieved. 

Yorkshire's conference resolu- 
tion says that if a show of hands 
.vote on the executive is chal- 
lenged, there should be a card 
vote, based on the size of the 
areas. 

Mr. Scargill, who has been 
backed on this issue by Mr. Mick 
McGahey, of the Scottish miners, 
objects to small areas such as 
North Wales or Cumberland 
having one vote on the NEC, 
even if they have fewer than 
1,000 members, while Yorkshire 
with 68.000 members has only 
three votes. 

Such a rule change would 
immediately juarantee , a Left- 
wing majority on the executive. 


Make more jobs, 

governments 
told by unions 

BY CHRISTIAN TYLER, LABOUR EDITOR 


LEADERS of trade union, in 
Western Europe and the U.S. 
have given warning that worl eni 
will stop co-operattng in raiding 
productivity or . rationalise? 
industry unless governments act 
quickly and directly to Increase 
job opportunities. 

They say that unions wilt -.mi 
demand increases in real wa.'cs 
for their members, and that, 
coupled with lack of output *nd 
productivity growth, will raise 
industrial costs. 

The main revival of etnpU.v- 
meut should come through a 
joint commitment to fasi-r 
economic growth, but work- 
sharing will be necessary in 
combat the immediate jobs prob- 
lem. the unions say. 

These warnings,' together with 
a strategy far regaining full 
employment., will be relayed ti« 
next month's Western economic 
summit meeting in Bonn. 

The strategy is based on a 
document discussed by uniun 
leaders from. Britain, Denmark. 
Sweden and the U.S. with Mr. 
Emil van Leunep, OECD sec- 
retary-general. and officials from 
OECD member-countries earlv 
this month. 

It was submitted to last week';. 
J inconclusive meeting of OECD 
'Ministers in Paris, ‘and will be 
revived for the summit in the 
light of unions' disappointment 
at the failure of the 24 OECD 
Governments to set specific 
. growth targets. 

j The unions also say that unless 
; something is done urgently. 


ihure will be a "stampede 
towards protectionism with 
adverse results for all con- 
cerned.” 

Governments were in danger 
of losing workers' confidence and 
cuuld face political and social 
unrest, particularly from the 
large numbers of young un- 
employed — now nearly half the 
jobless in the OECD countries. 

The unions demand Govern- 
ment job-creating and training 
programmes, and say that jobs 
must be adapted to workers as 
well as workers to jobs. 

. They also say that anti-infla- 
tion policies have had little 
success in creating stability, and 
Governments seem to ignore the 
fact that unemployment is itself 
inflationary. 

Increased purchasing power 
for workers, and thus increased 
demand, was the only efficient 
way of bringing new investment 
min a depressed economy. 
Raising profits “is not u suitable 
method.' (he document says. 

Investment plans shnuld he 
negotiated between governments, 
unions and employers, and the 
role of workers in company 

decision-making increased. 

The document says that 
developing countries should be 
helped to provide the basic needs 
uf their own people, “not to 
produce cheap goods with under- 
paid labour for foreign markets.” 

The unions also criticise the 

system of “ managed flouting ex- 
change rates” and call for a 
reform that will bring more 
short-term stability. 


Health Service employees 
take tough line on pay 


A TOUGH line on' pay was 
decided on yesterday by the 
executive of the Confederation of 
Health Service Employees, on the 
eve of their annual conference. 

Leaders of the -nurses and 
health workers union are de- 
manding a return to “responsible 
collective bargaining 1 * and a 
minimum basic wage for alt 
health workers of £80 for a 
35-hour week. 

The confederation said that 
the basic pay of . ancillary 
workers, porters, and; : domestic 
staff was £4H.42p for a 40-hour 
week at present. Other grades of 
ancillary workers and ‘ nurses 
received higher wages," but ail 
for a 40-hour week. ' 

The union had supported the 
Government during fife" “past 


three years of pay policy, but 
n>jw felt it was time to redress 
the fall in members’ living 
standards. 

© Seven operating theatres at 
one- of London's most modem 
hospitals are closed for all hut 
emergency operations because of 
a walk-out by nurses. 

Talks are to be held today at 
Greenwich District Hospital — 
opened only three years ago — 
in a bid to settle the dispute. 

The nurses walked out on 
Thursday in protest at the dis- 
missal of the sister in charge of 
the hospital's theatre suite. 

She "had refused to sign an 
undertaking that she would work 
with a newly introduced grade 
uf theatre staff — operating 
department assistants. 


Drivers 

demand 

ballot 

inquiry 


By Our Labour Correspondent 

THREE HUNDRED Midland 
lorry driver members of the 
Transport and General Workers’ 
Union yesterday called for an 
inquiry at national level into 
allegations of irregularities in 
union ballots involving Mr. Alan 
Law, the union’s Midlands Trade 
Group secretary. 

The allegations are now the 
subject of a police investigation. 

The lorry drivers’ 5/35 branch 
called for an inquiry into the 
organisation of three ballots last 
year, the subsequent division of 
the branch into four units and, 
specifically, the roles of Mr. 
Law and Mr. Brian Mathers, 
regional secretary. 

It is alleged that Mr. Law 
failed to send individual ballot 
forms to members of 5 '35 
branch in an election Tor a place 
on the union's regional commit- 
tee. 

Clear message 

The vote was not accepted, a 
re-run was ordered, and Mr. Law 
resigned his powerful position 
as unpaid secretary or 5/35 
branch. The branch was then 
separated, giving it Jour 
secretaries. 

Mr- Dennis Mills. 5/35 co-ordi- 
nating committee chairman, an- 
nouncing the resolution, said: 
“ I cannot say whether it was a 
censure of Alan Law. It was a 
clear message to have a full in 
quiry so we know the full facts 
and can clear the air.” 

Mr. Law was not at the meet- 
ing yesterday because he was 
attending a Yorkshire miners' 
gala. 

He has denied the ballet- 
rigging allegations, saying that 
pressure of work made it im- 
possible for office staff to send 
out all the ballot papers on 
time. 

The resolution called for the 
proposed inquiry to be conducted 
by one national officer, one 
national committee member, and 
five lay members of 5/35 branch 
— their findings to be reported 
back to the branch and the 
union's national and regional 
committees.

PLANNING a new ciiv nf 250.00U 
inhabitants where constraints un 
the type uf dwellings, accebv 
£>ysiems, industries and other 
aspects allowed are severe, is no 
mean task. Add to that Ihe 
problems mbereni in working on 
land rcclnimed from the sea us 
part of the Zuydor Zee project 
and the task takes un fresh 
complexities. 

The Lake Ijssel Polder 
Development Authority >s

ning of the 25n,000-mbabitam 
A 1 mere city ami the 100,000- 
inbabilant Leljsiad. both close 
to Amsicrdam smd both barred 
to development as overspill or 
durmitory areas for Amsterdam. 

Though the twu centres will 
not reach their projected popula- 
tion totals till the year 2000, the 
development lines have been 
fixed to provide work.- recreation 
facilities, nature reserves, ser- 
vices, schools and shopping 
centres, as well as houses, keep- 
ing the whole in step so that 
there does nor arise — as has been 
the case in loo many instances 
in Britain — a situation where 
there is housing, but precious 
iillie else. 

Co-ordination is an immense 
task to carry nut manually and 
tbe authority for some time has 
been making use or the 
PROPLAN approach, available 
on the Cybernet services of 
Control Data. 

This allows planners lo carry 
out lime, resource and cost 
analyses nf projects which 
encompass up tn 8.00(1 activities 
and 12.000 relationships, import- 
ant is thar the program suite 
enahtps a planner to see very 
quickly Ihc relationships among 
dependeni activities so that, for 
instance, if a major road scheme 
has io he changed, all the other 
wnrk affected will he pinpointed 
at once and the extent In which 
it is being influenced by the 
alterations. 

Such work is difficult if nut 
impossible in <in manually when 
sucb big projects are under 
way.

How managers are 




to make themselves 



HEAT MANAGERS and pro- 
fessjonai staff are now the 
Biggest growth area for trade 
unions could be seen as evidence 
Qf what appears to be a widely 
■held view — today's manager is a 
pretty disconsolate beast. 

But managers have not just 
Been throwing in their lot with 
the established TUC unions — 
A STMS is the obvious example 
— and TASS and APEX as well. 
There has also been a swelling 
in the ranks of non-affiliated 
unions such as the UK Associa- 
tion of Professional Engineers 
(UKAPE). Perhaps most 
interesting has been the growth 
of managers’ associations, often 
sneeringty referred to as “sweet- 
heart unions.” or worse, by their 
bigger TUC brothers. 

What is clear is that more and 
more managers are departing 
from their traditional indivi- 
dualist roles and are seeking 
the strength of collective repre- 
sentation. 


Dilemma 


The dilemma facing managers 
is complex. It is not just a 
question of whether they should 
join a union or a managers' 
association, but whether their 
interests are best represented 
■within the TUC orbit or else- 
where. The trouble is that the 
elsewhere is practically 
nowhere. 

There are some signs that 
alternative groupings are 
struggling to make their voices 
heard. In January this year 
for instance, the British Medical 
Association formed the MPSLG 
(Management and Professional 
Staffs Liaison Group) when 
doctors making representations 
to the Government were iold 
that they were not speaking on 
behalf of very many people. 
The MPSLG is a fairly loosely 
knit framework and includes 
the National Unilever Managers’ 
Association (NUMA). the 
British Dental Association, the 
Confederation of Employee 
Organisations, and the Associa- 
tion of Professional Scientists 
and Technologists. 

Another, .and a darker horse 
altogether, is the British Insti- 
tute ol Management. One 
thought wh'ieh has recently 
gained some favour within the 
corridors of the BHTs Manage- 
ment 'House ' is* for a link-up 
with the management associa- 
tions, with the BIM acting as 
an umbrella organisation. 

All negotiations and repre- 
sentations at a company level 
would continue to be conducted 
hy the individual associations. 


but the BIM would make 
national representations on 
their behalf, to government 
The. appeal to the BIM is 
obviously enormous because 0 f 
the gains it could make in both 
membership and political 
authority. For the management 
associations, there would be ihe 
strength of the BIM's estab- 
lished reputation. 

But the BIM would have to 
o\-crcome considerable resist- 
ance. both internal and external 
if it were to undertake such a 
radical step. 

Many of these issues were 
very much in evidence la-.t 
month, when over 200 managers 
from industry gathered at a 
conference organised hy th- 
Institution of Works Managei 
to discuss their problems and i.. 
compare the relative meriis of 
trade unions and management 
associations. 

There was broad agreement 
as to why managers were seek- 
ing collective representation. As 
Chris Hayward-Jones,' general 
secretary of the Shipbuilding 
and Allied Industries Manage- 
ment Association (SAIMA) told 
the conference: "Over a period 
of years, as a result of govern- 
ment incomes policies and shop- 
floor trade union pressures l'or 
single status, managers in ship- 
building. as elsewhere, have ex- 
perienced a progressive 
erosion of differentials between 
themselves and their sub- 
ordinates. 

“The spread of ■ collective 
bargaining and the increasing 
power of the trade unions has 
brought * about a steady 
diminution of the status and 
authority of middle managers 
who, as an unorganised body, 
frequently found themselves by- 
passed in the negotiating and 
consultative process and having 
to implement decisions which 
they themselves have had no 
power to influence." 

Where the managers at the 
conference were not so unani- 
mous in their opinions was on 
the type of organisation which 
would be best for them to join 
in order to gain effective 
representation. 

Chris Hayward-Jones explained 
why managers in the tihipbuild- 
ing industry had chosen, to form 
their own managers' association 
in preference to joining an 
established, and already recog- 
nised, union. 

By being m the same union 
as their subordinates, he said, 
managers qbuld face difficulties 
in their working relationships 
especially’ if there were a con- 
flict between unions and the 
employer. He pointed out that 
a manager held a dual role— as 
an employee and as an agent of 


the employer. In addition, many 
managers belonged to profes- 
sional bodies and had to comply 
with ethical rules; they feared 
they could be called upon by 
their union to lake part in 
action “ which they might con- 
sider to be at variance with 
their managerial or professional 
obligation.” 

. Frank Morley, vice-chairman 
of the National Unilever Man- 
agers Association, noted a simi- 
lar trend in the private sector 
and pointed out that virtually 
ail large companies had shown 
a tendency to drill towards 
bureaucracy and standardisa- 
tion. •* it is almost with reluc- 
tance that managers have recog- 
nised this, as the implications 
arc frustrating to the individual- 
ism which most managers 
cherish.” 

Another example at the con- 
ference of managerial frustra- 
tion was the extent to which 
legislation supported trade 
unions and eroded the standing 
of individual managers. 

The shipbuilding managers 
thought that none of the 13 
CSEU unions in their industry 
were suitable to represent 
managers across the whole 
range of functions, as they 
were all largely craft unions. 
"We felt if to be vital 
that managers across the 
industry, irrespective of their 
individual function, should have 
enmmon interests which over- 
ride functional boundaries, and 
should be represented by a 
single organisation which would 
coherently express their collec- 
tive point of view.” 


Influence 


The managers were not 
ali meted to a trade union which 
was affiliated to a political party 
— "or was run by extremists" 
he said. 

Hayward-Jones also pointed 
out that managers would have 
little influence on any of the 
CSEU unions, if they joined. 
The unions would be predomi- 
nantly composed of non-mana- 
geriai staffs, whose interests 
differ from those of managers 
—and since they were in the 
majority, they would prevail. 

SAIMA was formed in 1975 
and irr- December last year 
joined John Lyons' Engineers' 
and ^Managers’ Association 
(EMA iawhicb is affiliated to the 
TUC. Although SAIMA boasts 
a 70 per cent membership 
among managers, it Is strag- 
gling for recognition hy British 
Shipbuilders against stiff oppo- 
tion from the might of CSEU. 

The. shipbuilders’ manage- 
ment association was organised 


along very similar lines to the 
Steel Industry Management 
Association, which represents 
over 12,000 middle and senior 
managers in the British SLOCl 
Corporation. It was the general 
secretary of SIMA. Robert Muir, 
who provided the conference 
with what to some was the un- 
palatable fact Lhat single in- 
dustry management associations 
are faced with a credibility prob- 
lem. 

“We are quite clearly a trade 
union of managers,” he 
emphasised, going on to say that 
a management association has 
to choose between being 
crusading and being compliant. 

“We at SIMA have had to 
stand our ground and resorted 
to industrial action in 1974. 
Managers must he able to take 
action and must be seen as 
willing to take it.” 

A similar, although markedly 
less strident view, came from 
the private sector's National 
Unilever Managers’ Association. 
“It has been suggested that 
some companies have pre- 
empted the genuine unionisa- 
tion of managers by establish- 
ing controlled managers' associ- 
ations which masquerade as 
independent unions.” said vice- 
chairman. Frank Morley. “No 
doubt there arc examples of 
such marriages of convenience 
but they must he regarded as a 
temporary expedient which 
cannot survive in the long 
term." 

Moriey said that a non- 
aggressive attitude between a 
company and its managers' 
association should not be 
misinterpreted as a conspiracy 
between them, or the acceptance 
of domination by the company, 
a comment which might be 
viewed with some cynicism by 
seasoned trade unionists. 

"It would be foolish to deny” 
added Moriey. “that the threat 
of sanction!,- is not an essential 
part of the negotiating stance, 
but once managers have demon- 
strated an ability to act as a 
collective body and have the 
same protection as other 
unionised employees, it does 
not require the adoption of a 
truculent attitude or a 
cacophany of sabre-rattling to 
convince employers that 
managers can react effectively 
if provoked." 

There was a marked dif- 


ference of opinion al the con- 
ference about whether manage- 
ment associations .uiiuild era Vi-

At the conference represenla- ; 
tives of h<»th as.-uciatiun* urged- 
other managers ” to gel into the , 
TUC — that is where the puwer is 
— and. influence it from the in- 1 
side." 


Reluctant 


A number of managers 
expressed cnn.>iclerable doubts 
about the eiT.cti venoms of this 
course. As one put it: “ I think 
it is a little naive and a little 
patronising. Ewn .supposing 
half a million managers joined 
the TUC. what influence would 
they have . . . we've already 
agreed uur interests are 
different, that's why we arc 
reluctant to join traditional 
unions, for lhat very reason.” 

The alternative, according to 
a number of speakers at the 
conference, was to group 
management associations 

together: the most frequently 
mentioned example was the 
MPSLG (Management and Pro- 
fessional Stalls Liaison Croup), 
which was initiated by the 
doctors, but includes other pro- 
fessions and managers’ 
representative?. 

The future unionisation of 
managers is far from certain, 
or settled. While the existing 
established organisations fight 
for the whip hand, there is an 
alternative: a new body repre- 
senting managers collectively. 
There is far too much un- 
charted territory ahead for one 
to be able tu predict, but it 
might he worth watching to see

AN INCREASING number of 
executives, like migratory birds 
with lauliy directional equip- 
ment. spend much of their time 
flying from their own homes to 
alien land* scattered through- 
out the globe and darling back 
again. This is in the name of 
business and is. doubtless, of 
the greatest benefit. 

Unlike holiday-makers, to 
whur.i flying abroad is a rarity, 
many of these executives em- 
bark upon their endless, inter- 
mittent Odysseys as casually cs 
lesser folk catch buses. They 
rend ro develop a consuemdinal 
attitude to the exercise which 
is line sn long as they do not 
forget vital precautions. Just 
because journeys from, say, 
Britain to Bolivia seem far less 
ibunling than trip? from Liver- 
pool Street to Llandudno, so 
.speed and ease likewise have 
ntii eliminated the dangers of 
certain diseases which, if nnt 
always fatal, arc singularly 

unpleasant and debilitating. 

Immunisation against specific 
diseases is statutory and, with- 
out valid certificates, the 
debonair traveller (who can so 
easily forget to check) may be 
refused entry to other countries 
or. in certain places, may be 
admitted only after immunisa- 
tion has been performed by 
local officials. Not only may 
this prove outrageously expen- 
sive. tiie amateur vaccinator 
may have only a rudimentary 
knowledge and the results can 
be unpleasant. 

Apart from the compulsory 
immunisations. prophylactic 
methods should be adopted 
agaiDsr other equally serious 
diseases. But only a fnol, one 
might imagine, would ignore the 
chances of being smitten by 
diseases simply because no law 
exists to enforce protection 
against hostile organisms. 

Of the statutory immunisa- 
tions. there are but three: 
vaccination against smallpox, 
and immunisation against 
cholera and yellow freer. 
A I (h crush smallpox is supposed 
tbv WHO) to be virtually 
extinct, many countries, par- 
ticularly a majority of 
African republics, insist that 
visitors possess valid cer- 
tificates. Necessary or not, 
this is a fact, and ignoring 
advice may cause great incon- 


l^iPjILgf. r L(& l ggSSlL^ 





Jo/}/CUX 


the amateur vaccinator . . . 


\cnience. Immunity against 
smallpox lasts three years from 
vaccination. Reactions are un- 
common and vaccination is con- 
traindicated in very few 
circumstances. 

Immunisation against cholera, 
which disease, in its Asiatic 
form, killed countless numbers 
during the 19th century, is 
required by many countries. The 
El Tor variety, which is the 
usual one nowadays, is much 
less severe: but. unless proper 
remedies are applied to victims 
(as will always be instituted in 
sophisticated countries), this 
may cause death. Immunisation 
against the causative bacillus is 
by two injections four weeks 
apart. Immunity of up to 50 
per cent lasts for only six 
months. Reactions are rare and 
usually take the form of tender- 
ness, redness and swelling of the 
target area. 

Protection against yellow 
fever, a most dangerous disease 
carried by the Aedeis aegypli 
mosquito, which thrives in much 
of Africa and in Central South 
America, is provided by one 
injection and immunity lasts 
for ten years. This immunisa- 
tion cannot be given con- 
currently with that involving 
another live virus (eg., small- 
pox or poliomyelitis) and should 
precede cither <if the others by 
seven lo 14 days. Immunisation 
can only be carried out at 


specially designated centres in 
the UK. 

But immunisation must also 
be considered by travellers 
aiming for countries where none 
of these diseases exist It is 
very likely that during their 
journey, there may be scheduled 
or unscheduled stops in 
countries where the infection 
exists, for the casual organisms 
do not discriminate between 
visitors and stop-overs. Even if 
the voyager is not attacked, 
there is still a likelihood that 
officials at the place of dis- 
embarkation may require valid 
certificates simply as a wise 
precaution. 

Illnesses against which pro- 
tection is advisable include 
malaria, poliomyelitis, typhoid, 
and tetanus, for which no certi- 
ficates are required. These will 
be discussed in the next article. 
As to the others already 
described, it cannot be empha- 
sised too often that frequent 
travellers must make sure that 
they keep up to date with their 
immunisations so as to avoid 
angry frustration and dis- 
appointment. And. statutory or 
not. no journey to dangerous 
parts should be undertaken 
without protection. Setting 
business considerations above 
health is as stupid as it is 
forlorn, and a dead executive 
is profitable only to the under- 
taker.

BY SAMUEL BRITT AN 

THE UK is enjoy in; Ihc nearest 
ihiny to u boom that it has ex- 
perienced since the puncturing 
nr th.- Heath Doom by the oil 
crisis of late A973. You can look 
at almost any statistical senes 
you like and you will come to 
the same conclusion. 

Industrial production in the 
six months to last April has risen 
at an annual rate of nearly 5* 
per cent. Retail sales volume 
vi as on the same basis nearly S 
per cent up. These indicators 
ure still well below their IP73 
peaks and there no evidence 
hr any long term growth; but the 
boom* is definitely ihere. 


their soa*lo 




-V. 


Vacancies 


Unfilled vacancies— probably 
still the best indicator of the 
general state of demand — have 
recovered to tbeir highest level 
since the winter of 1974-75. Ex- 
port volume* is expected to be 
well up in the second half of 
1978. according to an official poll 

of iarye companies. The DTI*s 
spring survey shows an expected 
upturn in manufacturing invest- 
ment of 10 to 13 per cent in 197S 
— although still not enough to 
retrain the 1970 peak. Judging 
from anecdotal evidence among 
industrialists I would expect the 
next CB1 survey to be markedly 
optimistic. 

Indeed after so many years in 
which the Budget forecast has 
overstated real growth there is an 
excellent chance that the 1978 
forecast of 3 per cent will prove 
an underestimate of the actual 
rise on <1DP: and given the low 
underlying rate of productivity 
growth. unemployment should be 
fallinc fast. 

What accounts for the change ? 
The evnfcnl but wrong answer 
would be “The imminence of a 
General Election.” A more 
realistic response would be that 

there is to be an election this 

autumn because the economy is 
booming. 

The proximate cause of the 
boom is the surge in real per- 
sonal incomes. According to the 
National Institute, average earn- 
ings in 1978 should be up by 
over 13 per cent. With increases 
in emp'oyinent, social security 
naymenis and tax reliefs, the rise 
in personal disposable income 
should come to uver 15 per cent. 
This compares with a retail price 
rise between 1977 and 1978 esti- 
mated at just over 9 per cent. 

But this still does nut take us 


very far. Why have real incomes 
und spending risen so? Since! 
the mid-1970s most Government! 
attempts to boost the economy 
have become badly unstuck. A I 
first clue is Riven by the chart' 
oF the real money supply— that 
is the money supply divided br 
the price index. This indicator 
gave forewarning of the 
depressed condition of the mid- 
1970s but has been strongly 
positive since the summer of 
1977. 

Rut this is still only half an 
answer. For the authorities can 
onlv control the nominal money 
supply, not the real one. The 
dramatic clement which has 
changed has been the fall in the 
inflation rate from 16 per cenl 
in 1976 and 1977 to its present 
levels. . , 

This dramatic drop can hardly 
be due to pay policy — we have 
bad very s'milar pay norms 
since 1975. The big change has 
been the turnaround in the 
effective sterling rate, which 
changed course from a sharp 
downward trend up to the last 
quarter of 1976 to a pronounced 
upward movement lasting until 1 
this February. (The moderate 
relaDse this spring has not yet 
affected prices or wages). 

Sterling 

The improvement' in sterling; 
was itself due to the turn-round 
in confidence after the IMF 
agreement af December 1976 and, 
the first main impact of North 
Sea oil on the current account. 
Both these are once-for-all 
bonuses. From 1979 onwards 
Inflation will bear a more normal 
relation both to money supply 
and growth and tbe increase of 
money earnings. This means 
that real demand will also slow 
down l if not by as much as the 
National Institute fears): and 
the Keynesian establishment is 
clearly beeinnina to clamour for 
further stimuli, whether from a 
world boost at the July summit. 
UK import controls or anything 
else available. 

An alternative conclusion is 
that 1978 has been an excep- 
tional year in which a demand 
stimulus — due basically to the 
foreign exchance markets rather 
than the Chancellor— has been 
possible. By 1979 the underlying 
forces limiting output and 
employment will once again be 
in control and clever “manage- 
ment” will be of no avail. 


BY JUSTINIAN 

SEVEN YEARS ago the Franks 
Committee was net up to examine 
section 2 of the Official Secrets 
| Act 1911 — that catch-all pro- 
vision that makes the 
unauthorised disclosure of both 
serious and trivial information 
from government sources a 
criminal offence. In Parliament 
last Thursday the Government 
repeated its promise to publish 
a White Paper during this par- 
liamentary session indicating its 
proposals for legislation. 

Simultaneously, the Foreign 
[Secretary announced that in 
I future he would make available 
working papers on which certain 
foreign policy decisions had al- 
ready been taken. Thus the two 
aspects of the "open govern- 
ment” debate — a much more 
narrowly defined restriction on 
penal sanctions - for revealing 
State ‘'secrets'* and the estab- 
lishment of a public righr to 
I government information — were 
I placed in juxtaposition. It has 
not always been the case.

The Franks Committee in its 
report in September 1972. 
emphasised that its examination 
of the situation in this country 
suggested strongly that open- 
ni'«c in government depended on 
political and constitutional fac- 
tors rather than on legal pro- 
visions. It thus declined to con- 
sider legislation haspd on the 
lines of the United States laws 
■ -n public to i#"iji docu- 

ments. “because such a 
suggestion raided important con- 
stitutional questions going be- 
yond our terms of reference.” 
The growing clamour for some- 
thing comparable to tb«> U S. 
Publir Information Act 1967 has 
now elevated the discussion, 
about the place of the criminal 
law as a stick with which to 
heat the leakers of confidential 
governmental information, into 
an is«ue of hich constitutional 
importanee. A Labour Party 
Committee is on the point of 
n^iwln* * Freedom of Infor- 
mation Bill : the Conservative 
Party is studying the snhiect 
with’ a similar aim in mind ; and 
•» v" , »»r»*s*rv h'viv is kno’* - n tn he 
producing its solution. What are 
these propospals likely to be? 

The U.S. legislation requires 
only that identifiable docu- 
ments should be made available 
to the public for inspection and 


copying. There are nine excep- 
tions to the rule or availability- 
The nine are: defence and 
foreign policy secrets specif 
by Executive Order; internal 
personnel rules; matters ex- 
pressly excepted by Statute: 
privileged or confidential trade 
or commercial information - - 
privileged intra- governmental 
documents and correspondence: 
disclosure of personal and 
other files that would consti- 
tute an unwarranted invasion 

of privacy: law enforcement 
(mainly police) regulations: 
reports relating to supervision 
of financial institutions; and. 
quaintly, geological and other 
data concerning wells. 

The ‘U.S., additionally, has 
penal Statutes dealing with 
espionage (equivalent to our 
Section i of the Official Secrets 
Act 1911, providing for the 
offence of spying) and concern- 
ing Government information. 
Thus the law generally prohibits 
disclosure by public servanrs of 
confidential information about 
private business affairs, by 
which is meant the unlawful 
disclosure of trade secrets and 
other business information. 
There are also a number of 
other provisions prohibiting the 
disclosure by persons other 
than public officials of certain 
narrowly defined types of in- 
formation. A typical example 
prohibits the disclosure of in- 
formation by bank examiners 
without authority from the bank 
or Federal Reserve officials. 

Attractive as the American 
solution appears to be, there 
are grave doubts about how 
well it has worked in practice. 
Mr. Upon Brittan. QC and 
Conservative MP. sounded a 
warning note about the desira- 
bility of going down ihe 
American path in this country. 
His prescription and - that of 
others might find a happier 
parallel in Swedish law. 

Exceptions 

Tn Sweden there are detailed 
provisions in three inter- related 
subjects. Every citizen (includ- 
ing public officials and members 
of the armed forces) has the 
right of free expression, which 
includes the publication of 
official documents. The only 
exceptions are for the protec- 
tion of individual rights and 
public security. Another part 
of this Swedish Freedom of the 
Press Act specifieialfy gives 
every citizen the right of access 
to official documents. Excep- 


tions to this right are specified 
iu a Secrecy Act. .. . 

A general exception to the 
right of public access is made 
for working papers and other 
similar documents prepared by 
an authority as part of the pro- 
cess of reaching a decision. Such 
a document becomes’ publicly 
available only if, once that 
decision has been taken, it is 
placed on permanent record. 
This seems to be the model for 
Dr. Owen’s pronouncement last 
Thursday. 

Public access 

The exceptions to the right of 
public access contained in the 
Secrecy Act are not of this 
general character but related to 
categories of subject matter. 
The Act sets out in considerable 
detail the classes of document 
that are to be kept secret and 
the periods for which secrecy is 
to apply. These classes include 
documents on certain defence 
matters, tbe publication of 
which would harm tbe defence 
or security of the state: docu- 
ments relating to Sweden’s 
foreign relations: Cabinet 

records: documents relating to 
law enforcement agencies, but 
only if publications would be 
detrimental to the prevention or 
detection of crime or to tbe 
safety of the State or of an 
individual: certain Bank of 
Sweden documents: many kinds 
of documents containing per- 
sonal information about indivi- 
duals (censuses, registration of 
births, medical reports, social 
assistance, and criminal records, 
unless the individual concerned 
consents to disclosure or the 
authority holding the informa- 
tion is satisfied that it will not 
he used to his detriment or his 
family’s): many kinds of docu- 
ments containing commercial 
and industrial information: and 
a variety of other documents, 
which include official inspection 
reports, patent applications, 
documents relating to industrial 
relations, wage negotiations and 
court proceedings heard in 
camera. 

The switch in emphasis from 
the mere scrapping of the 
theoretically indefensible pro- 
visions of the Official Secrets 
Act to the question of the wider 
accessibility of governmental 
information reflects tbe quest 
for open government The days 
of government by secrecy are 
clearly numbered.

THE- MOST satisfactory featdte 
of the innings played by Botham, 
Gooch and Gower in the Lord's 
Test was not so much tbe runs 
scored: but rather the manner 
in which they were acquired. 
These three young stroke-makers 
if they do not make the mi sake 
of changing their approach, pve 
the opportunity to bring a style 
and elegance to the England 
hatting which has been massing 
for such a long time. ; 

Over fhp w>nt decade English- 
bom, colourful stroke^nakers 
have become a rare.- almost 
extinct breed. In county cricket 
the entertainers and the match- 
winning batsmen almost exclu- 
sively came from overseas. At 
international level we were often 
short of runs. and. when we did 
put together a large total it was 
invariably a utilitarian affair 
which took a very long time, with 
occasional bright flashes from 
Greig aod H’Oliveira. who both 
came from South Africa, and the 
inventiveness of the all-rounder 
Knott. 

Our two genuine international 
class batsmen of this period. 
Boycott and Edrlcb, were essen- 


tially reliable acquirers of runs, tents, not only bere> but ail oyer

I U.S. OPEN GOLF BY. BEN WRIGHT, Denver, Colorado, June 18L 


Andy North wins in close finish 


ANDY NORTH, a 2S-year-old 
Winconsin born professional is 
the new U.S. Open Champion 
and tbe tallest to history. His 
rounds of '70, 70, 71. and 74 for 
a one over par total, of 285 gave 
him a one stroke advantage over 
Dave Stockton (71. 73. 70, 72) 
and J. C. Snead (70, 72. 72. 72). 

Next at 288 came Hale Irwin 
and Tom Weiskopf. and at 5 
over par Gary Player Andy 
Bean, Jack Nicklaus, Bill Krat- 

zert and Tom Watson. 

The lanky North who has won 
only one tournament in nearly 
five years on tour here, was 
apparently coasting to victory 
and notably relaxed with five 
holes to play. At this stage he 
was four ahead of Stockton, his 
nearest rival, and five ahead of 
Snead. 

North holed an S Ft putt for 
a birdie three at the short par 
four 13th of 382 yards to put 
himself in this comfortable posi- 
tion. But be missed the fairway 
at tbe long 14th to drop a stroke 
and as he missed his putt. 


Stockton was holding a huge one 
for a birdie two at the 15th lo 
create a sudden two-stroke swing. 

Then, North tried to get too 
clever with his recovery from 
the hunker to the right of the 
green at the 208 yards 15tb. left 
the ball in the sand, and came 
crashing down to earth with a 
t w i (-over-par five that allowed 
Stockton to close within one shot 
of him. 

Meanwhile, the rest of the 
field had- dropped away out of 
contention, beaten senseless by 
this testing golf course. Tom- 
Weisbopf iiad a last round of 88, 
the equal best round oT tbe 
championship- to finish on 2S8. 

At 289 eame Tom Watson, who 
made a brief threat with an out- 
ward .half of 32, only to falter 
thereafter; Andy Bean, Jack 
Nicklaus and. Bill Kratzert 

Peter Oosterhuis, the lone 
Briton, finished with a 74, well 
down IheJist.at 296. 

Playing alongside Gary Player. 
North whose previous rounds of 
70. To and 71 have been a model . 


of consistency, immediately .got ‘ 
away from ,h(s partner, whose / 
putter -chose to go sour on him. 

North got in a six-foot putt.for *■' ; 
a birdie at the 4th hole and.'3ut'-: 
the green With two splendid shots 
at the 543 yard 5th. for -another" .. 
birdie that left the field flounder: _v. 
ing in bis wake at least five-* 
shots behind. t. . 

The drama of the final hole. 
was almost ' unbearable. inT its - • 
suspense. First came Stockton.:' 
who like North after him drove 
into the right band rough -away 
from the . water that- . hnv vaff'2-' • 
the way down tbe left.- 

Stockton came up V febort 
could not get up .and - 

.two shots to save bis par. -'V "^ 

North also niiBsedf- -the green" K’- 
and Sopped his 'pitch - tamely r

played a marvellous. bunker- sho^i^

Eddery a good bet at 5-1 




WITH WHAT appears to be a 
particularly tricky Royal Ascot 
lo prospect for backers this 
week, 1 believe it could well pay 
punters to throw in their tot 
with champion jockey Pat 
Eddery, in a bet offered by the 
Tote. 

The young Irishman, who is 
riding with as much verve as 
evei this season is on offer at 
5 to 1 hy that firm lo finish 
leading jockey over the festival, 
which opens tomorrow. Lester 
Pigcotl. so often the top Jockey 
at the four-day meeting (which 
does not include Saturday’* 
Heath card!, and in need of 15 
to achieve a century nr Rnyai 
Ascot victories, is the favniirup 
:il 2-1. Carson is with Rrtriery 
on 5 to 1. with .Mercer just h 
point longer. Any other named 


rider is available at SO to L 

Although Pigeons record 
there and his choice of mounts 
muy well, make him a ” good 
thing " in many people's eyes to 
continue where he left off a 
y<ar ago. I believe that he will 
be hard-pushed to head the table, 
with Vincent O'Brien's stable so 
completely out of form. 

Eddery's principal hacker, 
Peier Walwyn; has his string ip 
fine fettle and it will come as a 
surprise if Seven Barrows does 
noi land at least a couple of 
valuable prizes. At present. 
Eddery’s likely mounts for the 
Lamhourn stable include For- 
midahie (St James’s Palace 
Stake*. Tuesday) Camden Town 
(Jersey Stakes. Wednesday), 
Ruckskin ' (Ascot Cold Clip. 
Thursday) and Dactyl ogr a pher 


(pa'g Edward VII Stakes, 
Thursday). 

The . champion's list of outside 
rifles continues to grow,, wU6 
bookings already confirmed foi 
Adrian Maxwell's Kirin (Queen 
Anne Stakes, Tuesday). Mick 
g7?° te v WrHwlin . (Wokingham 

Stakes. Friday), and the Liam 
Browne-trained Lomond Shoe 
(Cork and Orrery Stakes, 
Thursday). ...

curves was commendable, but

The Jail Diary of Albie Sachs

Festival Kail 


Lynn 

Harrell 


As their soloist for Friday’s 
visit to the Festival Hall, the 
Royal. Liverpool Philharmonic 
brought the American cellist 
Lynn . Harrell to play the Dvorak 
Concerto’. _ Mr. Harrell has . be- 
come a welcome summer visitor 
in recent years, yet he can sel- 
dom have been heard to such 
advantage as on this occasion. 
His playing bad a simplicity and 
directness almost but not quite 
concealing complete mastery and 
a kind of natural nobility that 
had nothing to do with the semi- 
theatrical poses beloved of some 
major cellists. Only when the 
concerto was over did one sud- 
denly ahd gratefully recall the 
absence of the moments of tech- 
nical. strain to which most inter- 
preters of the solo part are 
subject." 

Ope factor contributing to the 
unusual degree of untroubled 
sprenky was the discreet but not 
undervitalised accompaniment by 
the.RLPO under their principal 
conductor. Walter Weller. The 
long - opening tutti was not- so 
satisfactory. Here the tone was 
tbinnish and tbc upper wood- 
wind squealy as they had been 
once or' twice previously in 
Smetana’s Vltava. These are the 
kind of thing the Festival Hall 
shows up. . ■, . ,

Brahms" there was again some 
sourish .intonation and a certain 
smallness of effect in the first

- ^ ^ xTRONALD CRICHTON 


After Nicholas Wright’s elegiac 
lament for the fate of white 
democrats in the Cape Town of 
1952 (Treefops. at the Riverside 
Studios). David Edgar’s RKC 
studio piet-c arrives as a harsh 
and 11 n equivocal pay-off. The 
first 90-Day law has been en- 
forced and Albie Sachs, a promi- 
nent white lawyer, is incarce- 
rated without trial. It is Cape 
Town, 1953. 1 have not read 
Sachs's diary (currently out of 
print) but much of the play, 
most of it in monologue form, 
has an authentic rjng. It may 
not tell us as much' about South 
Africa as Treetops ; "hut it tells 
us enough, and it conveys with 
extraordinary force the feeling 
of what it must be like to 
measure out your life against a 
self-imposed routine of exercise, 
ablutions, word games, ami blank 
inactivity. 

At one point Sachs imagines 
himself converting -his experi- 
ence into material for a stage 
play. How could' be. 'explain to 
an audience what it means to 
stare at a cel] wail for hours on 


end? He would let them just 
look at an actor for two whole 
minutes without a word uttered 
nr a gesture formed. Peler 
MrEnery, performing thorugh- 
uut with a graceful flexibility 
:md wry understatement that is 
positively spell-binding, leaves 
us alone for two interminable 
minutes bv doing nothing. He 
does nothing better than any 
actor I have ever seen doing 
nothing, which must take some 
doing. 

Around Mr. McEnery flits a 
resourceful company playing 
jailers, policemen, lawyers and 
thugs. Particularly good arc 
Peter Clough as a variety of 
insensitive characters and Edwin 
Richfield as a Bible-punching 
sergeant whose response to in- 
justice has been dulled by his 
experience as an Afrikaaner 
whipping boy. There is a beau- 
tiful speech for Mr. Richfield 
about Job that is as good as any- 
thing Mr. Edgar has written. 
The- encounter leaves Sachs only 
more depressed; even his whist- 
ling companion who joins in 
snatches of the Neic World 
symphony along the corridor is 


revealed with a cruel thud to be 
a hard-nosed janitor. 

At the end of the 90 days 
Sachs j?s “released" with sus- 
picious friendliness, but before 
he can even have a word on the 
telephone- wilh his mother he is 

'* 1 iKirrested.” At the end of 
that 90 days, in the one lighting 
variation of the evening, he 
rushes down to ihe sea. like 
Roger Daltry in Ken Russell’s 
Tomwijf. joyously declaring his 
freedom and his name. But 
nobody knows him. nobody cares. 
The experience helps him to put 
his useless pain tas he calls itt 
into some kind of mature per- 
spective and. as the play ends, 
we see him. finally released and 
packing his books for England. 

If the play leaves me eager to 
learn more about Albie Sachs, 
that is not necessarily a fault of 
the playwright who has written 
an exrelirnt prison play. Howard 
Davies directs it with decisive 
clarity and real care, well sup- 
ported by Chris Dyer’s white 
skeletal set that suggests both 
claustrophobic isolation and the 
labyrinthine corridors of a brutal 
bureaucracy beyond. 


St. George’s, Hanover Square 


Alexander Balus 


Granada remembers Falla 


by RONALD CRICHTON 


For some IS years, until he 
left Spain for Argentina in 1039, 
Manuel de Falla and his sister 
lived in Granada in a tiny house 
orwnnen on the southern slopes 
of the hill crowned by the 
Alhambra. There is a garden, 
small too. but laid out with such 
art on more than one level 
that It seems larger than It is. 
The view across the valley to 
the- Sierra Nevada is still stupen- 
dous although the city has 
Invaded the valley with a rash 
of high-rise blocks. The carmen 
remained in fortunatelv appreci- 
ative private hands until 1962, 
when the municipality bought it 
as a Falla museum: much of the 
original furniture and many of 
the composer’s modest posses- 
sions (including an array of 
dusty hats) were re-assembled 
and displayed there. 

The result, touching and 
delightful though it is, cannot 
pretend to he a sufficient memo- 
rial for the outstanding Spanish 
composer of modern times — 
there is no room to show manu- 
scripts or documents of any size, 
let alone to store or examine 
archives. The city, hacked by 
the Ministry of Culture in 
Madrid, decided to do more. 
Falla’s younger brother German 
was an architect. German's 
daughter Maria Isabel married 
a younger architect. Jose Marfa 
Garcia de Paredes. He was 
appropriately chosen to design 
a “Centro Manuel de Falla" 
combining a concert hall, exhibi- 
tion rooms, study rooms and a 
home for the archives — in spite 
of the great and continuing popu- 
larity of some of his music Falla, 
through a series of historical 
accidents, is among the least 
well-documented of leading 
modem composers. 

The object was not merely to 
set up a memorial but to make 
something useful. This in many 


respects old-fashioned man had 
firm ideas about the social use- 
fulness of music and the desir- 
ability of avoiding “vanity and 
egoism.” To pul things on the 
simplest plane, musicians inside 
and outside Spain need access 
to information about Falla. 
Granada needs a modem concert 
hail both for everyday use and 
for the annual festival — the 
Moorish and Renaissance Courts 
on the Alhambra make admirable 
sound-chambers but they are 
open to the skies and even in 
Andalusia it can ram. as those 
who attended the recent in- 
augural concerts will be aware. 

The Centro is the first official 
building of any importance to 
have been erected on that archi- 
tecturally holy hill since 1527. 
when the Palace of Charles V 
was plumped down in the middle 
of the Alhambra. The task 
needed tact as well as courage. 
Garcia de Paredes has designed 
a long, low building with an 
uneven silhouette which barely 
rises above the tree line. The 
site slopes steeply; even so, 
much of the building is under- 
ground. On the outside there 
is a minimum or concrete but a 
great dent of beauti/uliy tight 
and weathered-looking brick, 
roofed with even lighter and 
mare weathered-looking tiles. 

One enters through a gateway 
down brick stairs then turns 
sharply left into a garden 

already laid out with gravel paths 
among box-edged parterres of 
shrubs and small trees. The 
horizontal lines of the entrance 
to the building are sharply 
bisected by the trunks of a 
cluster of tall trees — a palm, 
cypresses and magnolia — rising 
from an octagon of cobbles with 
a trickling fountain on the rim. 
No important trees were 
displaced and the brickwork will 
soon be covered with creepers. 
To one side is a terrace with the 
same breath-taking view as the 


one from Falla’s garden just 
below— the two gardens are in 
fact joined by a half-hidden 
stair. During the interval of the 
first evening's concert a sickle 
moon hung high over the land- 
scape, full of promise for fine 
weather, dashed next afternoon 
by more torrential rain. 

The concert hall has seats on 
either side of a central space for 
performers. The seating is un- 
equally divided (the total 
capacity is 1,311) and the 
smaller, steeper part can be 
curtained off. The. problem cf 
giving visual unity to the 
elongated, threefold space has 
beeo solved by suspending from 
the ceiling four long rows of 
huge. stylised Andalusian 
lanterns. The seals, by our poor 
standards, are luxurious, the 
orchestral area is slightly larger 
than that of the Festival Hall. 

The first sounds heard at the 
opening concert were the voices 
of Granada University's Manuel 
de Falla choir singiDg (twice) 
his tiny, polyphonic Znrocatio ad 
Indtcidtum Trinitdiem. Then 
the National Orchestra of Spain 
took over, under their new con- 
ductor Antoni Ros Marba. the 
recent successor to Friibbecfc de 
Burgos. They gave excerpts 
from La rida breue. Nights in 
the Gardens of Spain (the soloist 
Rafael Arozco playing the work 
for the first time, not yet quite 
adept at placing the difficult 
obbligato piano part in the tex- 
ture). the orchesrrul version of 
the Homenaje a Debussy and 
the two suites from The Three- 
cornered Hat. 

A slight feeling that the 
orchestra were, so to speak, still 
trying out the new hall', may well 
have helped to avoid the super- 
ficial brilliance plus solemnity 
one learns to expect on these 
official occasions. The architect 
worked in tandem with the Ger- 
man expert Loihar Cremer, res- 
ponsible for the acoustical side 
of the Phtiharmonie and the 


Deutsche Oper in Berlin. The 
first impression was good: a 
bright but not qlarinq immediacy 
with enough shine to flatter the 
string tone and nourish voices, 
rather like ihe Fairfield Hall at 
Croydon. 

For the chamber concert on 
the second night my seat was 
behind the orchestra area, from 
which position everything worked 
except songs with piano— fortu- 
nately, as well as Falla's sadly 
neglected Gautier settings and 

the Scren Spanish Folksongs, the 
soprano Mcoserrat Alavedra. 
now half-facing the instruments, 
sang the Sonet© a Curdoba with 
harp and Psyche, a ravishing 
miniature for voice, flute, harp 
and three strings. Psyche in par- 
ticular made a deeper impression 
than usual. Ros Marba. who 
conducted this, took infinite 
pains over balance, yet it was 
clear that the kernel of the work 
in spite of the seductive instru- 
mental colour lies in the strong 
vocal line. Both P.vj/efn? and the 
equally but differently elusive 
Soneto deserve a recording with 
these artists. 

In the Harpsichord Concerto 
Ros Marba. the soloist Rafael 
Puyana (in bis most communi- 
cative form), and some excellent 
instrumentalists from Madrid 
succeeded in a work fiendishly 
difficult to bring off in any large 
ball. They did this not with 
clatter and brilliance but with 
a remarkable inward intensity — 
everything kept down to mau-h 
the soft elow of the harpsichord 
without loss of urgency. This 
rewarding concert also included 
two early but not worthless salon 
pieces for 'cello as well as the 
Four Piano Pieces and the 
formidable Fanfosta Bnetica. the 
piano works excellently done by 
Jacinto Matute from Cadiz. 
Falla’s birthplace. When the 
study and archive facilities are 
ready, the Centro Falla should 
take a unique place among 
European Arts complexes. 


Vienna Festival by ARTHUR JACOBS 


by ANTHONY HICKS 


In past years at about tins time 
Denys Darlow and his' Tilford 
Bach Festival /forces have enter- 
prisingly given a lesser-known 
Handel oratorio at St George's, 
Hanover Square, where Darlow is 
organist. *li is a church very 
much associated with the com- 
poser: he' worshipped there for 
most of his life in London. The 
performances, have been valuable 
adjuncts to ihe QEH concerts of 
the Handel Opera Society, pro- 
viding a different interpretative 
approach and generally fuller 
texts. Now Darlow. with indus- 
trial sponsorship, has launched a 
London Handel Festival based 
on St. George's. It opened «n 
Saturday with the oratorio 
Alexander Balus. and there are 
concerts every night ihis week 
ending with the apparently in- 
evitable 1 Messiah.. Rarities in- 
clude the Cbandos anthem Have 
mercy” and a large Italian 
cantata, and a good admixture 
of works bv Bach. Vivaldi and 
other contemporaries fills out we 
programmes. 

Alexander Balus is quite a 
rarity in Itself, though there was 
a respectable performance by the 
HOS two years ago and an in- 
adequate recording io German 
was once available. The story of 
an ill-fated marriage between a 
usurping Syria king and Ciecn 
patra. daughter of the Kinc of. 
Eevpt, is not an obvious choice 
for an oratorio; but Handel and 
his. librettist Thomas Moreii 
having scored a hit with Judos 
Moccaboeus in 174/. doubtless 
thought a further episode from. 

the Apocryphal First Bouk of 
Maccabees was worth a tf.v-. Un- 
fortunately Morell s text is clum- 
dilv constructed. 

The first two acts are almost 
entirely given over to anti ci pay 


imti* the 
Cleopatra’: 
suddenly rc 
set up the V 
foot-hold in 
plot finally 


ingi the:, wedding of Alexander 
and Cleopatra, with vague hints 
of something dire to come; not 
ddlc of Act 2 does 
father Ptolemee 
eal be has cynically 
hole tiling to gain a 
Syria. To Act 3 the 
sgets moving and 
turns to tragedy. Ptolemee and 
Alexander. n&,w opposed, both 
die in battle leaving Cleopatra 
betrayed, widcfwed and father- 
less. 

Handel was somewhat fitfully 
inspired,' but Judicious pruning 
of the dead-wood leaves enough 
engaging music to make a satis- 
fying evening. Gaily orchestrated 
choruses for the sun-worshipping 
Syrians are nicely contrasted 
with the more solid, contrapunral 
interjections of the Israelites, 
and Cleopatra's music touchingly 
conveys a full range of emotion 
from cautiously awakening love 
to' the mounting despair of her 
last scene: grief gives way 10 
calm, unearthly resignation in 
the best-known number in the 
work, “Convey me to some 
peaceful shore." 

TDarlow directed a pleasant 
and fair exposition of the 
oratorio. The amount of cutting 
was about rigbt, though ir 
seemed a pity to lose Alexander's 
airs' “O Mithra, with thy 
brightest beams ” and " Pow'rful 
guardians” in favour of the 
faddy, dull scene for Deo patra 
and her attendant in Act 2. 
At ' the start of each act and 
before the final scene narrations 
were spoken “ to help the 
Xtdience to follow clearly the 
events of the story.” Mercifully 


these proved to be brief and 
apt summaries of the relevant 
sections of Maccabees— but 
surely a synopsis in the other- 
wise excellent programme book 
would have been a better 
solution? 

The slower and more serious 
numbers found Darlow at his 
best — the intertwining violin 
phrases in “To God who made 
the radiant sun" were beauti- 
fully shaped — and so the 
Israelites fared better than tbe 
Syrians. The latter's chorus 
“Ye happy nations round" was 
leaden and crisper phrasing 
would have helped elsewhere, 
notably in the intriguing rhythms 
of the duel “Hail, wedded love." 
New-fangled ideas like non- 
delayed cadences in recitative 
are not yet in Darlow’s ken 
and quite a few appoggiaturas 
were missing, hut on the whole 
music and drama were in 
harness and moved forward pur- 
posefully. 

Among the soloists Weedy 
Eaihornc was outstanding as 
Cleopatra, even and expressive 
in tone; her su renews of line was 
fully tried in her final air and 
not found wanting. Counter- 
tenor Charles Brett (Alexander), 
slightly overparied in a role 
written for the vivacious mezzn 
Calerina Galli. nevertheless pro- 
duced some ringing heroics 
Elizabeth Gardner showed attrac- 
tive promise as the attendant 
Aspasia. The Tilford Bach Chnir 
and Orchestra were responsive 
but. as usual on these occasions 

would have benefited from an 
exua rehearsal. 


Within the main Vienna 
Festival, a celebration of 150 
years of Bfisendorfer pianos has 
been both a salute to past 
musical glories and the sign of 
a new commercial attack. Ln 
Vienna, where a street is called 
after the firm. Biisendorfer is a 
name linked in history with 
those of Brahma and Liszt. But 
outside Austria, the firm has 
achieved only a modest impact. 
Now. however, having come 
under the ownership of the 
American piano-makers. Kimball 
International, it sees itself as a 
David of ihe concert platform, 
determined 10 dent the domina- 
tion of the German- American 

Goliath, Steinway. 

Perform:: tins were given by 
the Austrian piynisis Walter 
Klien, Jiiry Demus. Paul Badura- 
Skoda and Alexander Jenncr. 
and by Gerhard Oppitz. ihe 25- 
year-old West German winner of 
last year's Artur Rubenslein 
compel ilion in Israel. The 
international music critics who 
attended as the Ann’s guests 


hardly needed to be convinced 
of the power and tonal delicacy 
of such models as the 9 ft 6 in 
Imperial wilh its nine extra bass 
keys. Potential performers, how- 
ever, will be swayed not only by 
purely musical considerations, 
but by the wider availability of 
instruments to rent in major 
musical centres. 


The year of Bdsendorfer’s 
beginning, 1828, also saw the 
death of Schubert, to whom 
Vienna pays a noble trihute in 
a current exhbition at the Palais 
Ilarracb. organised by the city 
libraries. Here the music lover 
gazes wilh awe on such manu- 
scripts as that of the Ninth 
Symphony disclosing a hardly- 
believahlc change of mind in 
the fourth bar. It is an exhibi- 
tion which should be brought tn 
Britain, even if facsimiles have 
to be substituted for some of the 
priceless original documents. 

The topical opportunity ut ex- 
ploring Schubert's piano music 
was missed by the BOsendorfer 


organisers, who disappointed me 
equally by not commissioning 
any new music — indeed, not 
admitting a single modern work 
to the programme. A visitor 
from Britain could also scarcely 
restrain a gasp at being asked 
to pay 30p for a printed pro- 
gramme giving only the titles of 
works, with no historical or 
analytical notes. 


Surprisingly. Dem us' recital 
is. Bi 


of Brahms. Beethoven. Debussy 
and Franck was . rather dull. 
Alexander Jenner brought a 
livelier evening with some 
vigorously characterised Debussy 
preludes and a stormy hut well- 
structered performance of 
Liszt’s FutMTnil/es and the 
Hungarian Rhapsody No. 6. 
Among his encores, the grand 
style was sustained with Chopin’s 
“ Revolutionary ” Study in C 
minor^-wbieh 1 almost heard in 
C sharp minor, since the 
Viennese use such a high pitch 
for their instruments. 

At a concert with the Vienna 
Philharmonic Orchestra under 


Horst Stein. Gerhard Oppitz 
somewhat belied his youth with 
a rather too restrained, not very 
individualised performance of 
Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 
4- .It was left to Badura-Skoda 
to beguile and impress with a 
late Mozart concerto. K503 in C. 
He not only ornamented the 
slow movement gracefully, but 
risked and justified a tiny 
rhythmic alteration in the finale. 
Here was a model of sound and 
style.

should also have been able to

a little subdued. Miss Armstrong 
was sweet and small-scale where 

a touch of ampleness would not 
he out of place. Dame Janet was 
infinitely delicate in “ Out on the 
lawn " hut it was the rhorus. not 
the. alto, who brought home most 
sharply the Feeling o* thirties 
guilt and unease. Mr. Tear 
excelled in “When will my May 
come” but not in the usually 
irresistible "Waters above." A 
small contingent of hoys from 
St. Clement Danes tried valiantly 
to be heard. What made the 
performance memorable was the 
singing of the chorus— attack, 
incisiveness, words, colour, every- 
thing.

Tranquil relations with the USSR — big brother next door — 
mean that the Finns are able at the moment to concentrate on domestic problems. 
These are considerable, including high unemployment, cuts in real incomes 

and a higher than usual level of inflation. 


to 


going 

By WiBiam DuUforce 
Nordic Correspondent 


THE FINNS are difficult to 
understand. Last winter some 
200.000 of them, around 8 per 
cent of the workforce, were 
unemployed and that figure may 
well be surpassed next winter. 
They have also suffered a cut in 
real incomes of about 4 per cent 
over the past two years. The 
man chiefly responsible for in- 
dicting this punishment is Dr. 
Mauno Koivisto, the Governor 
of the Bank of Fin3and. who 
h as Insisted that priority be 
.given to restoring the foreign 
payments balance and to curb- 
ing inflation. Yet top of the 
latest popularity polls (exclud- 
ing the President) is Mauno 
KoivistOi, 

One could suspect the Finns 
of masoehism or at least a dis- 
position . to exaggerate their 
sisu, the national characteristic 
which. may be translated as guts 
or terra city in the face of adver- 


sity. A simpler explanation is 
that Dr. Koivisto'? populariiy 
testifies to the Finns’ funda- 
mental good sense, which is 
often obscured by the cbaos of 
their politics. When the going 
gets tough, their sense of 
realism reasserts itself and they 
gratefully follow a determined 
lead. This has been a Typical 
and recurring pattern during 
their chequered 60 years as an 
independent nation. 

The Finns won that indepen- 
dence from Russia when the 
Bolshevik revolution "broke out. 
They have since twice fought 
the Russians to preserve it. 
They also survived in the first 
years of independence a civil 
war. which has left its scars. 
For half the period, since 1948. 
their independence has been 
balanced on the Treaty of 
Friendship, Co-operation and 
Mutual Assistance . with the 
Soviet Union. 

This unique document serves 
to reconcile Finnish in- 
dependence aod neutrality with 
the security requirements of 
The Soviet Union. - It gives 
Moscow considerable leverage 
in Helsinki and imposes on' the 
Finns a vigilance towards any 
developments in Northern 
Europe, which might affect the 
relationship. It is another 
peculiarity of the Finns that 
under this relationship they 
have succeeded in preserving 
a pluralistic democracy and in 
building up their own version of 
.the affluent. Scandinavian-type 
welfare state. ■ 

For the time being relations 
with their big neighbour 
appear to be running smoothly. 
The Soviet Prime Minister 
Alexei Kosygin was in Finland 


twice last year, once for the 
independence celebrations in 
December, and the Soviet 
Foreign Minister ‘Andrei 
'Irorayko turned up in Helsinki 
for the anniversary of the 
Treaty. Finland has been 
-'.citing more tup level Soviet 
visits than most East Bine 
t.-immunist states. And they 
hove been friendly visits not 
brought about by any crises in 
the relationship. 

One reason for tbe Russians' 
satisfaction is undoubtedly The 
re-election of Dr. Urho Kek- 
kunen. At the age of 77 he 
started on another six-year term 
as President in March after 
holding the office since 1956. 
He has exercised a domineering 
power over Finnish politics and 
has been increasingly criticised 
fnr curbing the talents of other 
potential political leaders, but 
the personal trust he has built 
up in Moscow has been a funda- 
mental element of Finland’s 
independence during the last 
quarter of a century. At the 
moment, too, the tranquility in 
their relations with the Russians 
helps the Finns to concentrate 
on their domestic problems. 


Surplus 


Fi*r, despite the euro imposed 
by Dr. Koivisto, Finland is by 
no means out of economic 
trouble. The payments balance 
may show a surplus this year 
and inflation has been brought 
down from an annual rate of 
15 per cent to around 7 per 
cent hut the level of economic 
activity remains low and un- 
employment is growing rather 
then receding. After three, 
devaluations in the space of a 
year Finnish exports, par- 


ticularly in the vital pulp and 
paper secior, arc more com- 
petitive. The export perform- 
ance this year is considerably 
bolder but companies are still 
having to sell a number of 
products at prices lower than 
their manufacturing costs. 

By the end of last year the 
success of Dr. Koivisto's mone- 
tary policy had in fact shifted 
the weight of responsibility lo 
the Government. His monetary 
cure had stabilised the economy 
but at a low- level. It was up 
to the Government to find a 
way of restimulating without 
releasing the devil of inflation. 
This was easier said than done 
because it called for action not 
by one determined man backed 
by a competent staff but by a 
coalition working within the 
complications of Finnish poli- 
tics. 

The Cabinet headed by Mr. 
Kaievi Sorsa. tbe Social-Demo- 
crat Prime Minister, has so far 
thrashed out three ** stimula- 
tion packages" of fiscal mea- 
sures. They have been politi- 
cally remarkable in that they 
have shown a Government 
dominated by Socialists and 
Communists pursuing an ortho- 
dox, non-Sodalist line, even, 
it could be said, one which 
appears at least in the short 
term to be hostile to workers* 
interests. Moreover, this policy 
has been accepted at least for 
the time being by the union 
leaders. 

Communist participation in 
the Government is another 
enigma which does not lessen 
the difficulty of interpreting the 
Finnish political scene. Not ail 
the Communists back the Gov- 
ernment'. The “ majority ” wing, 
led by the party chairman, Mr. 


Aarne Saarinen, participate in 
the Cabinet but the “ minority " 
headed by Mr. Taisto Sinisalo, 
one of the vice-chairmen, re- 
ject participation and a dozen 
of them vote stolidly against 
the Government in Parliament. 
Mr. Saarinen is if not a Euro- 
Communist at least a nationa- 
list, while Mr. Sinisalo is re- 
garded as a Stalinist hewing 
to the Moscow line. 

Some Finnish politicians be- 
lieve, however. that Mr. 
Saarinen is out to prove to 
sceptical Western Europeans 
that Communists can work 
loyally within a Coalition Cabi- 
net. a demonstration which 
could benefit his Italian and 
French colleagues. This suppo- 
sition does not take into 
account the singularity of Fin- 
land’s foreign political situa- 
tion and of its internal poli- 
tics. Foreign policy and parti- 
cularly relations with the Soviet 
Union are in the hands of the 
President and not the Cabinet 
in Finland. Moreover, all major 
Finnish parties support the 
current foreign policy line to- 
wards the Soviet Union. For- 
eign policy is not a subject of 
argument within The Cabinet. 

On the other hand, it can be 
areued that it has been the 
other parti 0 *’ advantage to have 
the Communists *n the Cabinet, 
taking re^nonsi hi lity for tough. 
non-Socialist measures, at a 
time of economic crisis. Mr. 
Saarinen hcli^ves rh»t hi* 
“ majority ” Communists ran 
exercise gre?" 1 ? influence from 
within the r-thinef but he could 
very well have caused more 
trouble for The other parries by 
staying in opposition. In effect, 
the Communist* appear to have 
been able to amend Government 


policies only In very minor 
ways. 

Some Finnish political com- 
mentators have claimed that Mr. 
Sorsa and his Social Democrats 
have become prisoners of the 
Communists. Their thesis is 
based chiefly on the Social 
Democrats' supposed diffidence 
about taking any action which 
would weaken their capacity to 
hold the Communists at bay in 
the trade unions. The com- 
mentators may have put the boot 
on the wrong foot. Recently, 
the Communists have looked 
more like Social Democrat cap- 
tives: they have had to accept 
Dr. Koivisto’s strong deflationary 
line. Mr. Sorsa’s tax reliefs for 
private business and high unem- 
ployment. Anri so far there is 
no evidence that they have won 
ground from the Social Demo- 
crats wi thin the union move- 
ment. 


Partnered 


Tbe Social Democrats, who 
have 54 of the 200 members of 
Parliament, are partnered in 
the present Coalition by the 
People's Democrats (the um- 
brella organisation for the 
Communists and Left Socialists 
who together have 40 members 
of parliament, including the 
opposition “minority” faction), 
the Centre Party (40) and the 
Liberals 19). The Government 
can usually count on the back- 
ing of the Swedish Party (10), 
which formed part of the 
Coalition until the reshuffle in 
March. 

The Centre Party, chaired by 
Mr. Johannes Virolainen, the 
Minister of Agriculture, is a 
regular partner in Finnish 
governments. It is the Presi- 


dent's party and among its 
present leaders is Dr. Ahti 
Karjalainen. several times 
Prime Minister and Foreign 
Minister and still regarded as 
the most likely man to succeed 
Dr. Kekkonen despite his recent 
disagreements with the Presi- 
dent. Tbe Centre Party’s in- 
fluence derives in part from 
the fact that, despite the ap- 
parent dominance of the Left 
in the Cabinent, there is a non- 
Socialist majority in Parlia- 
ment. The “ permanent " 
opposition is formed by the 

Conservatives (34 members) 
and three splinter partners, in- 
cluding the Christian League. 

At this point it Is necessary 
to explain yet another pecu- 
liarity of the Finnish political 
system. Under the Constitu- 
tional Act financial measures 
have to be approved by a five- 
sixths majority in Parliament, 
if they are to be implemented 
immediately. Technically a two- 
thirds majority suffices, but the 
one-third voting against can 
veto application of the measures 
until they have been passed 
again by a newly-elected parlia- 
ment The need to obtain a 
five-sixths majority for urgent 
fiscal measures clarifies to some 
extent both the vacillation and 
apparent ineptitude of Finnish 
governments. It also helps to 
explain why a Left-dominated 
Cabinet has in recent months 
been pursuin'? a consistent non- 
Socialist policy. 

Mr. Sorsa and his Social 
Democrats hope to have a bill 
amending the constitution 
agreed within the Cabinet by 
the end of this month. The 
original intention was to ex-

elude fiscal measures from the 
provisions of the Constitutional 
Act and to allow them to be 
approved by a simple majority 
in Parliament. Because of the 
Centre Party's belief that 
simple - majority legislation 
could pose a threat to private 
ownership, the likelihood is 
that tbe Cabinet will plump for 
a two-thirds majority require- 
ment. eliminating the present 
minority veto. The intention is 
to have the amendment passed 
by the present Parliament and 
the next Parliament due for 
election in March. 

The timetable is critical be* 
cause it is by no means certain 
that the present coalition can 
survive until March. It faces 
an inevitable squabble in the

pany lax relief measures: and 
finally ai the end of February

the scheduled election dale. 

Finland closes down for ihe 
summer. The Finus will return 
in the autumn from their cor- 
tngos and lakes to a familiar 
programme, in which th-j 
r.nvcmment will lurch from one 
minor internal crisis lo another, 
this time with an added ele- 
mcnr uf nervousness, as each 
parly jockey? fnr position in 
the election slakes. This is the 
reverse side of ihe independ- 
ence medal, the price the Finns 
have to pay for their success in 
preserving that pluralUti.; 
democracy. Uniy a small 
minority think the price is too 
high. 

And if one looks back uv^r 
the past 12 month-s. the politi- 
cians' record is not all that 
bad. Although industry may 
viill grumble that not enough 
has been dun,:, ihe cuts in 
social security charges on cin- 
j plojers and the investment lax 


reduction, enupk-d with the 
devaluation, do offer companies 
ihe prospect of returning H» 

profit, as demand picks up on 

the export markets. The right 
result was achieved, even if -t 
was arrived ol by a long and 
circuitous political mute. 

The main question now is 
whether the present coalition nr 
any new one formed after the 
ejection can keep the Finnish 
economy on the right road. 
Party leaders cuuld he tempted 
into expensive, vote-collecting 
measures during the run-up to 
election and the Social Demo- 
crats will have to consider 
whether and when to switch 
tuck to a more overtly SociaiUt 
Policy. This could be dangerous. 

The las relief accorded to the 
companies ha^ been lemporar:- 
and must be prolonged. ;f ihvre 
is to be a foundation for re- 
expansion. The demand for Fin- 
nish goods ahmad is nu*. yet 
!>treng enough, nor sre prices 
high enough, to allow for 
any tampering with company 
finances. 

The prospect for the jubk-t* 
is poor indeed. There i> hick-

has revised its target af getting 


the unemployment rate ‘down 
from 2.5 per cent to 3.5 per

reaching that goal would .seem ' 
to be for the Government to 
continue its policy of first get-.' . 
ting industry going again and 
forming a sound basis for more- 
jobs. 

Tn judge bv the popularity - 

of Governor Koivisto and- tbt

would seem to favour just such-

...and machinery 
fight for their 


P* ORDER to pay reparations 
to the Soviet Union after the 
■war the Finns had to build up 
an engineering industry almost 
from scratch. It was natural for 
them to concentrate on branches 
where they bad previous exper- 
ience. One result was the de- 
velopment of a pulp and paper 
machine manufacturing capacity 
quite .disproportionate to the 
size of the domestic industry 
and one .which has to compete 
on export, markets with such 
giants of the business as 
America's Beloit and West Ger- 
many’s Voith. 

The Finns estimate that they 
have close to 15 per cent of 
the world market for pulp and 
paper machinery and they are 
now engaged in a very tense 
struggle to maintain that share. 
There is currently a consider- 
able over-capacity on the 
world market, as the economic 
recession has curbed invest- 
ment in new pulp and paper 
mills, and the Finnish maufac- 
turera suffer like the rest of 
Finnish industry from high 
domestic cost levels which ham- 
per their ability to compete in 
price. This problem was vividly 
illustrated last year, when Voith 
succeeded in selling a paper 
machine manufactured in Brazil 
to a Swedish customer. 

The Finnish manufacturers 
comprise three main suppliers. 
The TVW group links Tam pel la, 
Valmet and WJirtsila and pro- 
duces chiefly paper machines. 
Rauma-Repola concentrates on 
pulp-making equipment, in 
which it has probably been the 
biggest in the world over the 
past decade. The Ahlstrom com- 
pany has a long-standing co- 
operation agreement with Karl- 
stads Mekaniska Verkstad, be- 
longing to Sweden’s Axel John- 
son group, and with Myrens 
Verksted, which forms part of 
the Norwegian Kvaemer group. 
These three market both pulp 
and paper machinery through 
the Xamyr company, in which 
they have equal shares- 


Established 


Traditionally the Finnish 
manufacturers have been well 
established on. the expanding 
Soviet market, where, however, 
they are 'now meeting tougher 
competition from the Russians’ 
own engineering plants and 
from other suppliers. They are 
defending their positions partly 
by co-operating with the Soviet 
engineering plants (and this 
includes the possibility of joint 
tendering for third - country 
contracts) and partly by ob- 
taining a larger share of the 
bilateral* trade. The Russians 
are now expected to order 
equipment worth some 300m 
roubles in the 19S1-85 period 
from the Finnish pulp and 
paper manufacturers compared 
with the something over 200ra 
roubles agreed on in the five- 
year agreement covering 197&- 
1980. 

The Finns other main mar- 
kets/' have been Scandinavia, 
North America and Western 
Europe- and they estimate that 
the bulk .of their sales. will 
continue to be. made in these 
area. At The same time they 
are energetically looking for 
new markets, particularly in 
South America and the Far 
East Jaakko PSyry. the Fin- 
nish group which L has heroine 

the leading' world consultant to 
the forest-based industries, 
estimates that 75-80 new paper 
machines will -be .needed in 
South America over the next 


s few years, some 60-70 of them 

- going to Brazil. The Finns have 
j not been as quick as Voith t« 
t spot this market, but all three 
r main manufacturers are now 
s moving into Brazil. 

On the product side, again 
' under the inspiration of Jaako 
r Poyry's research, the Finns 
[ are developing a dual approach. 
‘ They have traditionally con- 
; centraied on the production of 
■ ve *y large sophisticated high- 
; speed units designed to meet 
| the requirements of tbe pulp 
and paper exporting countries. 
They will continue to try to 
’ maintain their lead in- this type 
: of equipment,, but are simul- 
\ taneously designing smaller and 
[ simpler machines for use in 

- developing countries. They are 
• also seeking to adapt to the 
" demands of the more advanced 
1 developing countries by co- 
operating with local engineer- 

[ ing companies which have the 
capacity to supply the basic 
| constructional and rough 
engineering equipment for the 
pulp and paper mills. 

All the Finnish manufacturers 
suffered from a lack of orders 
in 1977, although the TVW 
group collected some important 
contracts in North America. The 
devaluation of the Finnmark 
has, however, improved their 
competitiveness and order pros- 
pects looks somewhat, brighter 
this year. Rauma-Repola and 
Ahlstrom have won contracts 
for deliveries to the big new 
sulphate pulp mill being built 
by the South Koreans and 
Ahlstrom’s offers department Is 
currently very busy with bids 
for re-building and modernisa- 
tion contracts. Many pulp and 
paper companies now appear to 
recognise the cash-flow, advant- 
ages of modernising existing 
plant, which often means' a pro- 
duction stop of only a/ couple 
of months, compared with build- 
ing a completely new mill which 
would give no production for 
18 months or so. 

Two recent strategic moves 
have been the TVW group's 
decteio-n to invest in a manu- 
facturing unit in Brazil .‘and 
Rauma-Repola’s co-operation 
agreement with Beloit TVW.js 
contributing 47.5 per cent of tbe 
$15m investment in an engin- 
eering workshop employing 
about 600 people and capable 
of producing the whole range of 
TVW paper-making equipment. 
Its partners are the Brazilian 
Filao group and the Brazilian 
investment company Brazilin- 
vesL This will be TVW’s first 
manufacturing venture outside 
Finland but it is developing a 
global sales strategy with licens- 
ing arrangements already con- 
cluded in West Germany, 
France, Japan and Spain. 

TVW’s three partners offer 
a complete paper-making range 
but are concentrating their 
sales pitch on some technically 
advanced new products. There 
are the Arcu former machines 
developed by Tam pell a and 
Valmet’s Sym-Former range of 
twin-wire units, for which eight 
orders have already been 
received. The latest delivery 
was to Nordland Papier GmbH 
of West Germany. Tbe former 
equipment is complemented by 
the coating machines developed 
by WfcrtsilS. for which 14 orders 
have so far been obtained. 

Rauma - Repola’s agreement 
with Beloit joins the world’s 
largest paper machine manufac- 
turer with the world No. I in 
pulp machinery and thus repre- 
sents a natural marriage. The 
agreement covers South and 


North America and provides for 
future joint marketing m the 
developing countries. In Sou Hi 
America, Rauma-Repola and 
Beloit arc trying to penetrate a 
market dominated by Vmtli 
and the Japanese. They plan 
to set up a manufacturing base 
on a 30-acre site at Campinas. 
North of Sao Paulo, with a 
Brazilian partner. Monleru 
Aranha, which will have n SI 
per cent share in the under- 
taking. A Government permit 
/or this project is expected later 
this year. 


The agreement also gives 
Beloit the right to inanufaelure 
Kauma-Repola pulp machinery 
under licence in the U.S. and 
Canada and exclusive sales 
rights in North America and 
Mexico. It therefore organises 
the whole continent for ilie two 
companies and provides Rauma- 
Repola with a way past the U.S. 
and Canadian import duties on 
pulp and paper machinery, 
which have become a severe 
burden for the high-cost Finnish 
manufacturers. Rauma-Repola 
has averaged sales or pulp 
machinery of about $i0Um a 
year over the past decade, hut 
after the boom in pulpmill 
investment at the beginning of 


the 1970s petered out. it h look- 
ing hard fur new orders. 

Aliislriini lias made an 
unheralded entry to the 
Brazilian market through the 
Kamyr croup, which ha-, had 
an engineering .-.hop for cooking, 
washing ami bleaching sy items 
in operation there fur the last 
eight months. Kamyr claims to 
lie Hie world lender in the pru- 
diiction uf such systems. The 
group, which had rather dis- 
appointing sales of SKr lUUin 
(821. Sin) last year, has concen- 
trated un producing jmlp equip- 
ment designed to reduce energy 
consumption and to meet strin- 
gent environ mental require- 
ments. 

Last niuii Hi (Ahl-lriim) 
notched up orders fur the re- 
building ii f three paper 
machines', two from ih-mestic 
customers and one In no West 
Germany. This wa» a welcome 
indication that pros peels may 
he improving. Last y.*.ir some 
70 per cent of the KM 65Sm 
sales made by the company's 
engineering division came from 
pulp and paper machine deli- 
veries but the figure will ho 
lower this year because of the 
decline in the order intake in 
1977. 

Ahlstrom has probably gone 
furthest of the Finnish manu- 
facturers in co-operating with 


the Russian producers. It has 
been involved m jmn: bid> with 
the Russians i o <. no.-Iuvakia 
and Bulgaria but n s r>:per iente 
sii fstf has beep that consider- 
ably more work rn-eds to be

Sir James 


British Ambassador to Finland 


Sir James Cable said: “It is 
rewarding to experience the 
Intense interest taken by the 
Finns in everything that m 
British: our language, our 
literature, our traditions, even 
our politics. Of all the many 
reasons, some of them stretch- 
ing back into the past for this 
interest. I want to mention in 
this connection only one — 
trade. 

“ Everyone knows the import- 
ance to Finland of the British 
market. Britain was for long 
Finland’s largest customer, 
slipping to third place cmly 
during the last three years. But 
Britain still provides a bonus 
unmatched by any other of 
Finland's trading partners— a 
regular annual surplus on the 
balance of trade amounting to 
£2 50m. Britain also buys more 
from Finland's staple indus- 
— wood and paper — 'than 

| any other country. 

“ What is often forgotten is 
Finland's importance to Britain: 
eighteenth on the list of our 
overseas suppliers. As a 
customer it was only in 1976 
that Finland dropped out of the 
top 20 British export markets: 
only in 1977 that Finland did 
not" buy more from Britain than 
the Soviet Union. Even 
today Finland ranks twenty- 
second among overseas cus- 
tomers for British goods, 
higher than such traditionally 
British-oriented countries as 
India or New Zealand. 

In 1977, the 5m Finns 
bought twice as much from us 
as did oil -rich Libya; four times 
as much as the 120m people of 
Indonesia; more than five times 
as much as the 900m people of 

China." , Mlf _ . 

Sir James concluded: This 
trading relationship was once 
even more, important to both 
countries, jin the early fifties 
the British share of Finnish 
imports was 20 per cent Today 
it is only 9 per cent, itself a 
slight improvement on the ratio 
I found on my arrival in 1975. 

I want tb see that share further 
increased. British exporters 
have an enormous advantage; 
English is now the second 
language of Finland. Sales 
require only the right price, 
quality and delivery date— and 
of course the simple pleasure of 
a visit to Finland. Today, when 
Finland is beginning to emerge 
from depression, is the day to

CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS PAGE 


few bright spots in the gloom 
besetting the engineering indus- 
try but' even as they stand at 
present they- cannot solve the 
'problems in the longer term. 
The industry has been working 
on a heart-searching analysis 
to find the main requirements 
for a solution to the present 
critical conditions. These cover 
both the - domestic and the 
export market. - 

Perhaps the top requirement 
which is within Finnish control 
is tax reliefs. The, present turn- 
over. tax raises the price of in- 
vestment' goods by 16 per cent 
and. .weakens competitiveness 
accordingly. As part of the so- 
called stabilisation-stimulation 
programmes, this tax has been 
temporarily rescinded until the 
end 6 f this year for new 
productive investments — but the 
measure 1 is only temporary. 
Industry has been lobbying for 
years for a change to the VAT 
ystem but the Left-wing parties 
viil not hear of it 
Another requirement is that 
ne state improves the ability 
£ .Finnish engineering com- 
anies to grant credit terms 
tat are at last as favourable 
those offered by their com- 
r tifore. Within the industry, 
•elf there^ 4 heed for : f ^rther 


rationalisation and diversifica- 
tion of production but this re- 
quires capital which is still in 
short supply and likely to re- 
main so for some time- • 

New ideas are being 
developed — and in part have 
already been implemented — in 
the export field. The thinking 
is that there should be some 
re-orientation, a move hway 
from the old markets which 
have long had similar economic 
problems to those of Finland 
towards new markets. Examples 
are Brazil, the oil-producing 
countries and South Korea. 


Barriers 


The TVW (Tampella-Valmet- 
Wartsila) paper machine group 
recently announced that.it will 
be opening a factory in Brazil 
where, because of the high 
tariff barriers, the market has 
hitherto been a relatively closed 
one. It is going into partnership 
in the new venture with the 
Brazilian Pilao group and the 
investment company Brasil- 
invest. The Brazilian partners 
will hold 52 per cent of foe 
shares. .5* 

The TVW. already has co- 
operation agreements wi£R! 
manufacturers in Japan. West 
Germany and France. Rauroar- 


Repola Oy will be co-operating 
with Beloit in Brazil to build a 
plant to supply pulpmaking 
machinery in that market. 
Raumo-Repola also signed a 
contract recently to supply a 
complele pulp mill to South 
Korea where, in co-operation 
with Outokumpu Oy, it is 
already building « copper 
smelling plant. In short, ex- 
port sales are to be Intensified 
by establishing sales, mainten- 
ance and manufacturing units 
in the main and most promising 
markets. 

Finally a few words about the 
electrical engineering and elec- 
tronics branches, which account 
for about 15 per cent of the 
total value added of the metal 
and engineering sector. The 
electronics branch — radios, TV 
sets and tubes, and telecom- 
munications equipment — seems 
to be fairly buoyant But with 
all the debate about energy 
savings the heavy electrical 
industry — electric motors, 
generators and transformers — 
cannot be too happy about the 
future. Orders are not coming 
in fast enough, especially as 
most of tbe major conventional 
and nuclear power plant pro- 
jects are nearing completion.

M FINLAND IS a beautiful and 
wonderful country, but hell's 
bells, just try living there." So 
goes an old Finnish saying. 
Well, this writer has tried for 
close on 32 years, has survived, 
and has enjoyed it Not all of 
it, but most of it It is a 
beautiful country of forests and 
lakes and clean air and water, 
good theatres and concert halls 
in foe towns and good casts and 
orchestras playing In them, 
impressive architecture, guud 
inter-urban communications, 
and so on. 

It is estimated that about half 
the Finns living in urban 
centres are only a generation 
removed from their homesteads 
in the country, which might 
explain their longing to get 
back to the grass roots when- 
ever the opportunity offers. 
They will fill the theatres aod 
concert halls when they are in 
town, but equally will fill their 
country cottages during the 
summer (and even winter, for 
skiingl- There is something of 

the poet and a peasant about 
this. 

It is a delightful, actually 
necessary, way to live. But it 
can be exasperating for the out- 
sider. Except for those who like 
cross-country skiing, and most 
Finns do, the winter is long, 
dark and rugged- But winter or 
summer, fresh air is the thing 
and half of Helsinki takes off for 
the wilds at Christmas, Easter 
and midsummer, much to the 
chagrin of visiting businessmen 
and journalists. 

It is even worse between Mid- 
summer’s Day and some time in 
August, when half of Helsinki 
is in a country cottage without a 
telephone, soaking up the sun if 


rhey are lucky enough to have 
any. Sunshine or not. the Finns 
want to get back close the 
earth, in foe bu-si sense of the 
term, to re-charge their batter- 
ies, so to speak, it seems to 
work. 

Of course things are changing, 
but not much. In some families 
the youngsters, and even the 
parents, are spending their holi- 
days, or part of ihem. io the 
snuth of Europe, seeking the 
sun. It is almost a statu.; symbol 
now to appear sun-tanned even 
in mid-winter. S>inu» uf the 
ulder generation have sold off 
their country cottages on the 
lakeside or seashore because the 
children no longer t-are to go 
there. 


Primitive 


Conditions there >: Jn be fairly 
primitive. All the water has Tu 
be pumped frnm a well or 
fetched in bucket* frnm a 
nearby lake. Why the house- 
wife, who in town has hot and 
cold running water, an electric 
stove and a washing machine, 
chooses this hard work for a few 
weeks in the summer is a 
mystery. 

But she is used to working 
hard. In town, even if she has 
a job. when she comes home 
she puts on an apron and starts 
to cook- The man comes home 
from his day’s work at the desk, 
takes off his coat and settles 
down in the armchair to await 
the call to dinner. 

Another old legend is that the 
Finns go off to the country in 
order to be alone, to get away 
from it all. Yet most of them 
are constantly entertaining 
guests. There is perhaps no 


longer The old desire for soli- 
tude, though there is oppor- 
tunity enough. Finland is the 
fifth biggest country' in Europe, 
but has only 4.7m people. A 
few thousand tourists can be 
added to this number in the 
summer but few' of them invade 
the privacy of foe summer 
cottage. 

Country or town, if there are 
guests or it is a feast day, there 
will be burning candles on the 
table. That is almost de npueur. 
There will alvj be colour — 
bright table mats, a sprinkling 

of colourful vegetables in the 
stew or the salad, and gleaming 

glasses ot Finnish design. 
Colour and design have become 
very important in Finnish 
homes, at least to women. The 
roen do not always appreciate 
these refinements. 

In a v\ ay the temperature 
rules foe Finnish way of life. 
The first thin? to do in lbe 
morning is to look at the 
thermometer hanging outside 
the window. That tells you 
what to wear, long or short 
underpants, heavy overcoat or 
raincoat. It also tells whether 
you can go skiing (from your 
front door even in town ► or 
jogging or play tennis, etc. 

The Finns are sport-mad. In 
the winter it is skiing, in the 
summer track and field. Soccer 
is a relative newcomer, but 
growing fast in popularity, 
though the season is for climatic 
reasons rather short. The 
winners of gold medals in the 
Olympics, both summer and 
winter, are greeted like visit- 
ing heads of state on their 
return home. They are an elile. 
But the ordinary Finn often 
skis 1.000 km (725 miles) cross- 


country in the winter. The 
President Of Finland, who is 
78, used to do it every year 
until recently. 

There are one or two other 
things the Finns do which could 
come under the heading of 
sport. One is to walk out on to 
the frozen sea or lake and spend 
a day dangling a hook through 
a hole in tbe ice in foe bope uf 
catching a tiddler. There are 
even national championships for 
this form of torture. Another 
is the totally frightening habit 
of sawing a large space in the 
ice-covered lake or sea and 
having a dip there. There are 
Finns who do this every day 
and say that it keeps them free 
from diseases the year round. 


Sauna 


Whatever is written about 
Finland, the sauna inevitably 
comes into the story somewhere 
or other. The sauna is not 
actually Finnish, though most 
Finns tend To think it is. This 
is understandable, because they 
have preserved it in its purest 
form. Essentially a sauna 
in Finland means that you 
strip off your medals and 
dignity and go stark naked into 
the steam room where you 
could boil or fry an egg in the 
heat. Unofficially, there is a 
Helsinki Club to which belong 
the heads of state and premiers 
who have had a sauna with 
President Urho Kekkonen, and 
they include kings and princes. 

Some enthusiast estimated 
that there were nearly 700,000 
saunas in Finland in 1960. 
There must be many more by 
now, for every new house built 
has its own sauna and. if it is 


a fairly luxurious house or 
block uf flats, its own small 
swimming pool. Most of these 
have an electric stove. But foe 
nicest are the euuntry saunas, 
heated with dry birch wood 
which has a delightful aroma. 
The ritual is that you sit naked 
on the bench in the steam room, 
pour hot water from the stove 
on to the hot stones and sizzle 
in the steam for as long as you 
like. You then dive into the 
lake or roll in the snow or lake 
a dip through a prepared bole 
in the ice. and gu back for more 
if you feel like it. 

There was an Englishman who 

became legendary in northern 
Finland because in all lit* 
modesty he went into the steam 
room in his underclothes. After 
ail, the whole Government 
(lady Ministers excepted) often 
take to the sauna tu steam out 
their problems — though they tiu 
nut always succeed. However, 
visiting Brils should remember 
that in the sauna the Finns are 
playing on their home ground. 
It is no use making au 
endurance trial of the e.vperi- 
ence just to defend foe honour 
of foe Empire. The sauna is 
meant to be enjoyed, not 
endured. 

When the winter is over and 
the first rays of sun with any 
heat appear, all the Finns in the 
streets appear to be looking 
skyward, as though watching an 
acrobatic display. From then 
on the preoccupation is to 
catch as much sun as possible. 
The lovely girls reappear, 
dressed in very little. Where 
they gu in the winter is a 
mystery*.

FINLAND’S STATE steel com- 
pany, Rautaruukki, was last 
year bit by a substantial fall 
in -domestic steel consumption 
but at present its main handi- 
cap appears to be Viscount 
Etienne- Davignon and Euro- 
pean Community steel policy . 

Despite : the fact that 
RauUrUukki' made a loss of 
FM. r Illin in. 1977, its perform- 
ance.! n terms of a 33 per cent 
increase in output (to about 
2.1m, .tonnes) and greatly im- 
proved exports, did much to 
justify recent investment which 
doubled its steel capacity. 

However, since the introduc- 
tion of the Davignon plan, 
exports into European countries 
have suffered severely. Last 
year between 35 and 38 per cent 
oft steel exports went tu Europe 
but things will be quite 
different this year, the company 
believes. 

Under - EEC arrangements 
with EFTA, of which. Finland 
is a member, the company can 
sell' at only 3 per cept below 
comparable European prices, an 
arrangement which Rautaxuukki 
claims to be unacceptable in the 
conditions now prevailing. 

Most steel buyers in Europe. 
RautahiukJd says, do not think 
it worthwhile to buy steel 
abroad to gain 3 per cent, 
taking' into r account the con- 
venience of being able to place 
orders locally. .At the same 
time . various other countries 
such as Spain and Japan are 
allowed to sell at even lower 
prices, 6 per cent below 
domestic EEC- prices. 

Countries such as Sweden 
and the U.S. have proved to be 
gqpd markets, but unless the 
Davignon plan fails to last, 
Rautaruukkr faces: a hard year 
despite some improvement in 
home demand. The start-up of 
two new production facilities 
could not have come at a worse 
lime, and the company sees it 
as slightly, ironic that ii is iu 
effect suffering because of lack 
of, similar investment in EEC 
countries. 

Qn.th^ other hand -its produc- 
ed' costs. -are: now much lower 
than -’those of most competitors 
and despite the underlying price 
weakness 1 in world markets, 
this should ensure a better 
future. , 'It will also be 
important for Finland’s en- 
gineering. industry that steel 
will' Continue to be available at 
competitive prices. 

The privately owned Ovaka 
Group, which specialises in pig 
iron, crude steel and rolled 
products and exports about half 
itsVprdducUbh.. has not fared so 
badly in' European- markets, 
although this could pe a result 
of • its ' greater specialisation 
than, its State-owned counter- 
part - , , 

Nevertheless, it too made a 
loss of FM22m during 19 i.i 
although without the dubious 
achievement of increasing out- 
put. and sales of FM600m were 
slightly down oq the previous 
year. However, it reports a 

considerable, improvement ui 
business in the first few months 
of 197S. 


So far the company is rather 
Jess concerned about restric- 
tions on sales in the EEC than 
will) the depressed pig iron 
market, which hit production 
severely last year. Without 
Stare backing Ovaka is also con- 
cerned a hour its liquidity posi- 
tion and had to go to foreign 
capital markets last year to 
raise short-term loans. 

The company's continuing 
hope is that its product prices 
can be increased substantially 
this year and that its earnings 
in markets such as the U.S. anil 
Britain can be improved after 
considerable success in those 
countries recently. 

Without great resources for 
investment. Ovaka plans to 
exploit its considerable tech- 
nical expertise and develop new 
products. Its successful boron 
steel technology and its system 
of reducing fuel consumption 
in blast furnaces are both 
regarded as potential areas for 
this kind of development 

Unlike Rauiaruukki, which 
has its own mines in Sweden 
to supply a large proportion or 
its raw materials such as iron 
concentrates and vanadium ifor 
use in steels for nuclear plant 
reactors and other heavy duty 
materials), Ovaka is largely 
dependent on imports of iron 
o re f rom countries such as 
Sweden. Norway and the Soviet 
Union and coke from Britain. 
It is also the main buyer of 
Finnish scrap. 

Competition 

In the Finnish market Ovaka 
faces considerable competition 
on its products, with around 1 ■" 
tonnes a year of total “ 
imports (compared with 
exports by Finland of. ar . 
700.000 tonnes), with Sweden 
the Comecnn countries 
Britain the uiajur importers. 

The most important users 
Ovako products are U 1C vehicle 
building, engineering .and 

foundry industries. On 4 -the 
vehicle side the company , lias 
had some success in the UKJ 
market, selling to all the major* 
manufacturers, but -recently 
price levels have been hit by 
the low prices , offered. -by the 
British Steel Corporation and by 
the fall in sterling. 

Ovako also used to export 
around 70.000 tonnes of pig iron 
to Britain for the foundry 
industry. This trade has been 
severely reduced, although it is 
regarded as significant that even 
BSC is buying from Ovako in 
certain specialised areas. 

The Finnish mining industry, 
despite increasingly cheap ore 
available from countries such as 
Brazil, makes a major contribu- 
tion to the iron, steel and other 
metal industries. The mining 
sector is dominated by Outu- 
kumpu. which also produces 
almost all the country's con- 
siderable output of non-ferrous 
metals. These include copper, 
nickel, pyrite concentrates and 
cobalt. The company also has 
a large stainless steel division. 

On sales of around FM l-4bn 
last year Outukumpu made a 


net profit last year of FM 6.7m 
and exports accounted for 77 
per cent of turnover. Cupper 
and copper alloy produers made 
up 33 per cent of sales, zinc IS 
per cent, nickel 10 per cent and 
stainless steel 6 per cent. 

in all these metals Outu- 
kumpu has been operating at 
marginal profit levels because of 
the weakness in world markets, 
although die recent price move- 
ments on copper, particularly 
>ince the troubles in Zaire, have 
been encouraging for the com- 
pany. The main long-term con- 
cern of Outukumpu. however, is 
tile depletion of its mines. 

Overall output is expected to 
remain the same Tor the next 
eight years and then decline 
fairly rapidly unless any largo 
discoveries are made: this is 
thought to he unlikely. It is 
therefore damaging to the long- 
term future of the company to 
produce a high output of metals 
at barely profitable prices, as it 
has been doing recently. 

With this in mind the com- 
pany i s looking abroad for 
opportunities. It has much to 
offer in terms of plant-building 
expertise and its technical 
export division showed a sharp 
rise in sales last year. Major 



work last year included copper 
smelters for the Soviet Union 
and South Korea tin a con- 
sortium including Djvy Power- 
gas ». Orders for the division a I 
the end of last year amounted 
to FM g76m. 

It is anticipated that the tech- 
nical export division will 
account for up to 20 per cent of 
total turnover in five years’ 
time, mainly because mining 
activities cannot be expanded 
significantly without further ore 
discoveries. 

As with other industries m 
Finland, ihc mining and metals 
sector is' increasingly dependent 
upon its skills developed over 
many years, hut because of the 
lack of demand in home markets 
and in the ease of mining the 
depletion of raw materials, it is 
having to look abroad for future 
ca rnings. 

While the high quality and 
specialised nature of Finnish 
products will be helpful in 
achieving this aim. many other 
countries facing the same prob- 
lems are looking abroad as well, 
and the competition facing Fin- 
nish companies will be 
extremely hard.

iaii’ 


BY ROY HODSON 


THE LATEST problems of 
■British Steel's works at Ll&n- 
wern and the' corporation's 
reliance on emergency imports 
again raise the question 
whether BSCTs giant plants 
were worth ' building:. The 
question is given added point 
by the current success of a 
small private mini-mil! operat 
ipg .across the fields from 

U ro w era. 

Once again BSC’s 3m-tonnes- 
a^ear works at Uanwera has 
oeen idle because a small num- 
ber of workers were in dis- 
pute. This time - the blast- 
furnacemea - were responsible 
for the stoppage which ended 
yesterday. Little more than a 
year ago the electricians baited 
die plant for several weeks. 

Each time British Steel loses 
the output of Llanwem, its 
biggest modern plant, it is com- 
pelled to splutter along like a 
motor car running on three 
cylinders. 

During the ' current steel 
slump Llahwera ' has been 
heavily -loaded with orders at 
the. expense of other works for 
the good reason that, when 
operating, it makes the cheapest 
steel, - It is more efficient than 
other British Steel plants at 
turning out fiat-rolled products 
for: such markets as tinplate 
( for canning), hot rolled coil 
for_. engineering, and cold 
reduced sheet for motor car 
bodies. 

To extract the maximum 
possible. advantage from 
LlanwenTs low-cost steelmaking 
in these hard times British 
Steel has pushed the plant in 
recent weeks to a record rate of 
some 2.5m tonnes' a year actual 
output. The price of such a con- 
centration of effort has been 
that other older and less efficient 
steel plants have bad to be 
starved of orders, and parts of 
them temporarily closed or run 
spasmodically. 


The sudden strike at Llanwem 
threw the whole British Steel 
strategy into confusion. It was 
not technically possible to 
"rev up" production at other 
works to fill the gap. Neither 
the quantity of steel nor the 
Quality the customers demand 
could be provided at short 
notice. 

British Steel's only solution 
to the problem was to satisfy Us 
customers by importing prime 
stell from Europe. Orders had 
to be placed in Holland. British 
Steel, which ranks third. among 
the world's top 20 steelmakers, 
must be the only major group 
forced to spend up to £4m a 
week on emergency steel im- 
ports: and this in the. midst of 
a grave international steel 
recession in which other pro- 
ducers are scrambling for the 
few orders available. . 


Ironic 


British Steel’s predicament 
has been ironic, even „ absurd. 
But it is not novel to the cor- 
poration. During the past five 
years British Steel has pursued 
the biggest steel investment 
programme in Europe. in order 
to build a series of 7 massive 
coastal works. Meanwhile, it 
has repeatedly run into diffi- 
culties in supplying : its cus- 
tomers. Sometimes the problem 
has been the misreading of 
surges in demand for steel. 
Sometimes technical - problems 
at the new nr still incomplete 
works have left the corporation 
short of steel. Sometimes — as 
at Llanwem — a small number 
of workers have been able to 
bring a great plant to a halt 
and rob the corporation 1 of up 
to 40,000 tonnes a week, of 
prime steel. 

The big British steelxhaldng 
complexes at Llanwern and 
Port Talbot, in South Wales: 
Ravenscraig in Scotland; and 


Teesside and Scunthorpe In the 
North of England, are clearly 
vulnerable to disruption. And 
the effects of loss of output at 
any one of them arc felt 
severely throughout the cor- 
poration. Is it possible then 
that in steelmaking small may 
be beautiful? 

The best place to study that 
question is at Llanwem itself. 
Recently Mr. Dick Eddy, one 
of the Llanwern steelworkers, 
wrote to Sir Charles Villiers, 
chairman of British Steel, He 
was questioning the whole con- 
cept of industrial cathedrals 
devoted to steelmaking. His 
letter read: “Across the fields 
from Llanwern the future of 
strip steel already emerges — 
the Alpha private steel mill 
which will produce 800,000 
tonnes per year on 500 men. 
Llanwern has problems doing 
that with 10.000 men. . . ." 

An embarrassing letter per- 
haps to the chairman pf a cor- 
poration which has gone beyond 
the point of no return in its 
investment in big works. But 
the Alpha works Is one of the 
new facts of life wilh which 
British Steel must contend. 
During the Llanwern stoppage 
Alpha was continuing to step 
up production as it runs in 
the new plant. 

The Alpha mill is the latest 
and biggest of a new breed of 
steel plant often called the mini- 
mill. From British Steel’s point 
of view it is certainly the most 
provocative. lit has been built 
in the very shadow of Llanwern 
and is quickly increasing pro- 
duction in an identical product 

Alphasteel, the operating com- 
pany. is financed through Swit- 
zerland with technical expertise 
provided by an agreement with 
the Greek steel company. 
Halyvourgiki. That somewhat 
unlikely combination for a 
South Wales steed development 


has built and brought into pro- 
duction in under three years 
a complete miniature steel 
works at a cost of below £10(hn. 
It is being manned mainly by 
ex-British Steel men. Some 
have taken BSC redundancy 
pay. Others have simply trans- 
ferred from other steel works 
in the area. 

This year Alphas! eel will 
make an estimated 200.000 to 
250,000 tonnes of hot-rolled mil. 
It may be able to improve upua 


prise grouping new to the area. 

At that level U i* hardly a 
major threat to British Steel. 
The Story will not end there, 
however. Alphasteel intends to 
raise output until ait four of its 

electric arc furnaces are being 
worked to a pattern which will 
give an output of up to tin 
tonnes of steel a year. The 
company, estimates it will need 
between 800 and 1.000 men for 
that. Then, when the market 
looks right, the company plans 


difficulty in obtaining scrap 
supplies and, in any case, it 
will have the whole of the 
Common Market to draw upon 
under the European Coal and 
Steel Community rules for free 
trading in scrap between tbe 
Nine. 

If Alphasteel does raise pro- 
duction to lm tonnes a year — 
which seems to be well within 
its technical capacity* — the basic 
concept of the mini-mill will 
became somewhat strained. 


6 With some 300 workers Alpha will be making about one-tenth 
as much steel as Llanwern with its 10,000 men . . . British 
Steel's production strategy is wedded to the concept of import- 
ing bulk supplies of ore and turning it into steel by large-scale 
production at lowest possible cost at big coastal works. It is 
now clear that such works are highly vulnerable. 9 


those targets <if the Llanwern 
strike has the effect of leavinj* 
a gap in the market for any 
length of time. There is only 
one union at the Alpha works. 
The management recognises 
only the Iron and Steel Trades 
Confederation. the general 

secretary of which is Mr. BilJ 
Sirs, the chairman of the TUC 
Steel Committee. 

At Llanwern British Steel has 
to deal with five main union 
bodies of which one l the 
National Craftsmen’s Co- 
ordinating Coimmttee) repre- 
sents 12 unions. 

With some 300 workers 
Alpha will be making about one- 
tenth as much steel as Llanwern 
with its 10.000 men. That must 
be accounted a remarkable 
achievement by a private emer- 


tu instal a cold rolling mill 
which will convert the hot- 
rolled coil product into the cold- 
reduced form uf steel needed 
by the motor industry. 

At that point tbe comparison 
between Llanwern and Alpha- 
steel will begin to look very 

interesting indeed. Go the one 
hand 10,000 nirn to make 2.5m 
tonus a year. On ihe other hand 
just 1.000 men to make lm 
tonnes a year 

Unlike Llanwern, Alphasteel 
does not import iron ore and 
process it in giant blast' 
furnaces. Instead Alpha relies 
upon supplies of steel scrap 
which are melted down. But 
is that an inherent weakness, 
as some steel experts have 
argued? The Alpha manage- 
ment says it h?>- not had any 


Originally the term mini-mill 
was coined to describe a cheap 
and cheerful system of steel- 
making suitable for mopping 
up steel scrap locally or for 
installing in developing 
countries. 

Usually a mini-mill consists 
of electric arc furnaces to melt 
steel scrap; a continuous cast- 
ing plant to produce strands of 
steel from the molten slate 
rather like squeezing tooth- 
paste from a tube; and. finally, 
a rolling mill to turn tbe steel 
into bars, flat coils, rods, or 
whatever market the plant is 
designed to serve. 

Lately the mini-mill concept 
has become less easy to deter- 
mine. Various works have 
become bigger and more com- 
plex Than the original concept 


A recent Metal Bui lorin .confer- 
ence of experts tried to define 
the modern mini-miU. At the 
end of a hard day they had to 
admit that although the quarry 
had often been sighted, the 
hunters could not actually 
agree upon what they had 
seen . . . 

Credulity was first strained in 
Britain by the Shcerness Steel 
mini-mill. That plant was 
originally planned on the 
island of Sheppey on tbe 
Thames on a modest- scale to. 
use scrap steel from the 
London area. But now, under 
brisk Canadian management, it 
is making 500,000 tonnes a year, 
mostly for export. 

Thus, two so-called mini- 

mills— Alphasteel and Sbeerness 
Steel may eventually account 
for some 1.5m tonnes of 
Britain's steel output each year 
between them. They will by 
then be making about one-third 
of all the steel produced by 
the private steelmaking sector. 

Although the tonnages are 
still small when compared with 
British Steel's 17m tonnes a 
year they are nevertheless a 
significant proportion of total 
British output of steel. 

The British Steel Corporation 
production strategy is wedded 
to the concept of importing bulk 
supplies of cheap foreign iron 
ore and turning it into steel by 
large-scale production at lowest 
possible cost at big coastal 
works. It is now clear — 
LJanwem's problems have again 
made the point — that such 
works are highly vulnerable to 
technical problems, to long 
construction times, and to 
labour disruptions. .It is also 
clear that those weaknesses 
were not taken into account 
sufficiently when the strategy 
was being developed in the 
early 1970s. 


Instead of watching the mini- 
mills steal its clothes is there 
anything British Steel can do? 
One interesting possibility is 
for the corporation to use its 
present period of retrenchment 
upon investment to consider 
the future of Us own electric 
arc furnaces. The corporation 
has 33 of them. Perhaps future 
investment policy might be 
modified to use. some of those 
furnaces as the centre-pieces of 
some British Steel mini-mills. 
The argument against is a 
strong one. British Steel already 
has too much steelmaking 
capacity and as the big coastal 
works are finished it will have 
even more. The unions would 
hare to be persuaded to accept 
new manning practices. 


Flexible 


Nevertheless there may be 
ways in which British Steel can 
turn the mini-miU concept to 
good use in time to catch the 
expected upturn in steel 
demand in the early 19S0s. 
Control of some mini-mill-type 
production would enable the 
corporation to be more flexible 
and a lot less vulnerable to 
disruption at its big works. 

British Steel could do worse 
than begin its studies at Shel- 
ton, Stoke-on-Trent, where con- 
ventional iron and steelmaking 
is to be closed at the end of 
this month. The employees still 
believe the works could be con- 
tinued as a complete unit if an 
electric arc furnace were to be 
installed to serve the modem 
steel rolling mill . Such spend- 
ing could not be justified at 
present. But Britisb Steel 
might be glad to have some 
works of that size — whether 
they are known as mini-mills or 
by any other name — in time for 
the 1980s steel boom.

same rate of improvement as in the past two years, our targets are for 
above-average growth and we expect to achieve them.

(e) The decrease of £0,3m in overseas trading profit 
is after faking account of a li)» of OWm « hieh 
is attributable to the conversion of the 1978 
profit at exchange rales which were less 
favourable than those used in convening iJie 
1977 profit. 

The Plastics and Materials Handling figure for 
1978 includes the trading profit of £0.9m of White 
Child and Bcncy Limited, but the 1 ‘>?7 com- 
parative docs not include that companj's fading 
profit of £0.Sm as it only became a subsidiary on

expenditure of £0.7m arising m conn eel ion with 
the re-organisation of ihc Dublin Brewery, the 
formal live jear development plan of which was 
completed in that year. 


Although the profits of the first half of [97 s now reported are down on those of the first half of our 1977 year 
ii is inv \ few that the second half of 1978 will sh««w substantial impr»n L -meni oxer the second half of last year.

THE RUMASA GROUP, the 
largest private holding company 
in Spain, has increased its pene- 
tration of the wines and spirits 
business through the purchase of 
a Jerez-based company. Garvey. 
The latter is best known for its 
production of brandy of which it 
produces some 12ra bottles a 
year. 

Rumasa controlled by Sr. Jose 
Maria Ruiz Mateos is reported 
to have agreed a purchase price 
of Pia 60Qm fS7.5mj of which 
Pta 150m (SI 8m) will be paid 
cash. Garvey had a turnover of 
Pta 2.5bn (S31m) last year, 

making it one of the *20 leading 
drinks comDanie? in Spain. Gar- 
vey sells 70 per cent on the 
domestic market, but has 30 per 
cent of sales abroad 
Rumasa’s main drinks com- 
pany is the sherry group Zoilo

French banks fight and win 


THE BOND markets lived t 
through another dull and rather i 
dnnre.ssinj week culminating on 
Friday in the . announeemen^ 
that prime rates m the U.S. ana 1 
interbank Eurodollar rates had . 
moved to ‘heir highest levels 1 
since January 1975. Prices eased 
on Frida* after bavin? held up * 
well in thin trading dunuy lhe 
week: the increase of the sJOnt . 
Baker convertible after strong 
demand was the only element of 
cheer 

Matters did liven up however 
ps the week wore on: the row 
which flared nn in nt id-week 
between the Tn*or and the 
Direction des lmpols Jthe taj, 
authorities! in Pans threatened 
t,. stop French borrowers from 
raisin? Tunds m the inter- 
national bond markets. 

•\s it is the pricing of the 

Sock-tes tie DcveJuppemcnt 

Regional issue was delayed and 
the announcement of issues for 
the Credit National and the 
Banque (nternationale pour 
l'Afrique Oecidentalc were held 
up Bv l*«le Friday evening how- 
ever. the argument had been 
solved in favour of the Triisor 
and the banks. 

In a rather different area. Ute 
$100m lloaiinu rate note for Off- 
shore Mining Company or New 
Zealand suggested that such a 
form of borrowing for sovereign 
credits may become more 
popular in a period of high 
interest rates. 

The problems where the 
French issues are concerned 
arise From an attempt by the 


tax authorities In Paris to re- . 
interpret an existing law. They 
insisted that henceforth tax 
should he deducted before 
interest payments are made on 
international bonds issued by 
French borrowers and held by 
French residents. Implemen- 
tation nf such a regulation 
wnuld he a very complicated 
affair. 

International bonds are 
•hearer instruments and holders 
simplv have to appear at one of 
the olR - es °f a bank which is 
nominated as paying agent with 
the hond in their hands for the 
coupon «o be f literally! cut 
off and payment of interest 
mad* French bankers 

questioned whether it was legally 
possible for paying agents to be 
required to perform this task, if 
implemented French borinwers 
would have found it difficult to 
issue international bonds since 
a large proportion oF the invest* 
nienf comes from within France. 

Ominous signs of the Direc- 
I tion des Impots's new thinking 
■ appeared earlier this year when 
i a number of changes at the 
‘ hi "her echelons of the Direction, 
according to French hankers. 


Some argue that recent events * 
helped to bring the matter to a I 

head. , , 

After the general elections 
last March, the Ministerc des i 
Finances was split in two: the i 
Direction des lmpols went to 
the new Minister? du Budget 
while the Tresor went to the 
Ministfire de ^Economic, ibe 
same hankers argue that the new 
interpretation of existing regula- 
tions which the Direction des 
lmpols was seeking to impose 
was the result of ignorance, the 
Direction simply had no idea of 
the likely consequences of what 
they were pushing for. 

Before the argument was re- 
solved in its favour the Tresor 
would not be drawn further than 
to say that it was quite happy 
with matters as they had oper- 
ated up to now and sav? no 
reason for change. It did battle 
with the Direction des Impots 
and won. 

It would have been most un- 
. fortunate for French borrowers 
- if it had not. For the first time 
i since March French entities are 
> back in the markets, and not only 
the hond ones, en force. The 
Tresor has just proved its 


mettle once again by hclpins 
the Caisse Nationals "lies Tele- 
communications get a spread 01 
4 per cent on a large credit, 
the finest teems in the current 

cycle.

The launching last Friday of c 
a medium term loan (S350m for 
seven years) and a HoaUns f at£? , 
note far Offshore Minins Com- ( 
pany provides a very S°?“ j 
opportunity to compare t“ e ( 
floating rats note market i FUN) , 
with the syndicated lending one. J 
This is partly because the FRN 
has no minimum rate attached : 
tr> it. which allows for a more : 
direct comparison than is 
usually the case. This i* all the 
more true as the same borrower 
seldom taps the two markets 
simultaneously. 

The spread on the medium 
term loan is g per cent over the 
London interbank offered rale 

(Libor) and is considerably 

higher than the I per cent point 
above the raid point between the 
London interbank bid rate and 
the offered rate which i* payable 
in the case or the FRN. Since 
the difference between hid and 
; offered rales is l of a point. 

’ the spread on the FRN will be 
■ A over Libor. 

The size of the fees in the 
medium term loan arc not 
i known, but bankers said on 
• Friday that 3 per cent vuuld he 
standard for this borrower in 
today's market conditions. ^Tms 
compares with a total uf - 
cent od the FRN (J management 
fee. I underwriting fee and 


per cent selling group discount). 

If one divides these fees by eight 
(ibe final maturity of the FUN l - 
one reaches a spread in the case 
of the medium term. loan ot 
some 0.70 per cent and m ute _ 
case of the FRN, about 0.60 per 

Because so much higher a 
proportion of ■ the yield lit tne 
case of the FRN is derived from 
front end fees, the comparison 
changes significantly if one 
applies discounted cash now 
techniques (DCF) to the sums. 
According to one of the banks 
involved the application of put 
techniques to the FRN pricing 
would bring down the spread on 
that to 0.44 per cent per annum 
while it would have much 1 ms 
effect on the spread on the 
medium term loan. 

Insofar as banks or corporate 
treasurers invest in these mstru- 
1 merits, they tend to do so through 
their money market departments. 
c so that they are comparing the 
: yields on FRNs with the yield 

1 on. say- certificates of deposit 
? (lower than inter bank rate) or 
| on inter bank deposits tbem- 
* selves. 

However if during the prospec- 

2 tive period of relatively high 
interest rates — which is likely 

e \o cut back the volume, of fixed 
t rate offerings — the floating rate 
it market proves receptive to signi- 
e Scant numbers of floating rate 
n issues bv sovereign borrowers 
s then banks will presumably have 
r to start reviewing the relative 
it advantages of the FRN against 
i the syndicated loan.

For 30 years Yugoslavia has presented Europe and the world with an intriguing and 
successful exercise in non-aligned socialism. The popular mood is optimistic enough even 
to-contemplate a future without the legendary Marshal Tito, now in his 87th year. 


YUGOSLAVIA HAS come a long 
■way since the publication on 
June 28, 1948, ol a few lines on 
the inside pages of a Czech 
newspaper announced to the 
world that Yugoslavia had been 
expelled from the Cominform. 
Sincejhen it has travelled its 
own road, pursuing 'the 
principles of national independ- 
ence and non-alignment and its 
own - particular admixture of 
authoritarianism and democracy. 

Just how far Yugoslavia has 
come .since those harsh wartime 
and post-war years is likelv to 
be spelt out in the speech which 
Josip Broz Tito, President of 
Yugoslavia and the League of 
Communists of Yugoslavia 
(LCY) is due to make tomorrow, 
at -Jhe opening of the Party’s 
lllh congress. It is expected to 
be something of a political testa- 
ment surveying past achieve- 
ments and expressing the faith 
that Yugoslavia will continue 
along its chosen path under the 
leadership of the League Com- 
munists. 


Vitality 


-Although 86, President Tito 
still shows extraordinary 
vitality. He recently completed 
an exhausting series of foreign 
visits: .which took him to the 
capitals of all three super 
powers. His visit to China must 
have been particularly satisfy- 
ing, After years of vilifying 
Yugoslavia as arch-revisionist 
the new Chinese regime has 
finally .recognised the virtues of 
non-aaigriment and indepen- 
dence- from the super powers— 
particularly one of them— amd^ 
haa sent Several delegations to 


study the Yugoslav system of 
self- management. Even Airs. 
Thatcher declared herself im- 
pressed by Yugoslav achieve- 
ments when she ' visited the 
country earlier this year. 

At home too President Tito 
still keeps a close eye on politi- 
cal developments, aided by the 
small group of fellow partisans 
front the old days like Edvard 

Kardelj and Vlad imir Balearic. 
Over the years some of Tito's 
former dose friends and col- 
leagues— such as Milovan Djilas 
or former secret police boss 
Aleksandar Rankovic — have 
fallen from grace and now live 
in comfortable retirement But 
only one relatively young man, 
Stane Dolanc, the tough but 
affable party secretary from 
Slovenia who helped to sort out 
the nationalist problems in 
Croatia and Serbia in 1971, has 
moved into the inner circle 
alongside General Nikola 
Ljubicic, head of the army, and 
General Franjo Herijevic, the 
Minister of the Interior who' is 
also in charge of the secret 
police. 

But on an organisational 
level the top decision-making 
machinery within the .LCY is 
being changed. The old execu- 
tive committee of the central 
committee is to be abolished 
and the presidency of the. cen- 
tral committee is to be cut down 
in size from over 40 to 24 
members (three leaders from 
each of the six republics, two 
from the two autonomous. pro- 
vinces, one from the army., and 
President- Tito himself). Sti&e 
Dolanc. secretary of the old- 
executive committee, is eat-' 
pected to be confirmed_/as 


secretary of the new-look presi- 
dency nt the congress itself. 

-As for the top organisation 
of ihe Yugoslav Federal State, 
this has already been reorgan- 
ised info an eight-man collective 
presidency rplus President Tito 
who is president for life). When 
Tito dies the mainly ceremonial 
functions of the President of 


authority which up to now has 
been backed up by the 
authority of Tito himself. It 
was, and still is, an authority 
stemming from what a British 
academic once described as “an 
extraordinary mixture of 
martial charisma and constitu- 
tional informality almost 
amounting to a political droit 


to Tito — by leading members of 
the LCY in these republics.) 

Tito decided to take drastic 
action to stop what was clearly 
conceived as a threat lu the 
unity of Yugoslavia and a 
thorough purge .if the Party, 
banks and intellectuals followed. 

Much of what has happened 
in Yugoslavia since then has 


social and economic life. 

This vast and complex body 
uf new laws and constitutional 
arrangements is as much the 
expression of the aims and ideals 
of Yugoslav society as a practical 
guide tu how to achieve them. 
Yugoslav ideologists themselves 
tend to underline the element 
of continuitv rather than the 


in the Yugoslav system. Can the 
LCY be democratic and auth- 
oritarian, in favour of pluralism 
but opposed to a plurality of

Yugoslavia will be taken over 
by one of the eight members of 
the collective presidency on a 
strict rotation basis, similar to 
that operating in Switzerland. 

AH this is a slightly round- 
about way of saying that the 
institutional arrangements for 
the post-Tito period are now 
known, agreed and ready to 
function when needed. 

They go a long way to answer 
the question of what happens 
after Tito goes. Great care has 
been taken to ensure that the 
maximum devolution of power 
and responsibility has been 
.accompanied by the mainten- 
ance of a strong core of 
ideological and political 


de seigneur" 

That right was exercised to 
great effect in 1971/72 to defuse 
what was then seen as the must 
serious challenge to Yugoslavia’s 
unity since the revolution. This 
was the re-emergence of strong 
nationalist feelings, particularly 
in Croatia and Serbia, fuelled 
by a conviction that their econo- 
mic development was being held 
back by excessive centralisation 
in Belgrade and the siphoning 
off of foreign exchange and 
other income to the less-de- 
veloped republics. (Significantly, 
these views were expressed both 
by the then powerful Croatian 
and Serbian Banks and the uni- 
versities and— most worrying 


been concerned with exorcising 
the spectre of nationalism and 
seeking to satisfy the legitimate 
aspirations of all the six nations 
(Serbs, Croats. Muslims, Slo- 
venes. Macedonians and Monte- 
negrins) and IS different 
national minority and ethnic 
groups within a new constitu- 
tional framework. 

Hence the introduction of a 
new constitution m 1974 and a 
veritable cascade of new laws 
aimed at implementing and in- 
stitutionalising ihe self-manage- 
ment principle in the organisa- 
tion of labour. planning, 
banking and credit, foreign 
exchange, prices and incomes 
policy and the whole gamut of 


novelty of the new arrange- 
ments. 

What has definitely not 
changed is insistence on the 
“leading role" of the LCY and 
the refusal to counternanre the 
creation uf a multi-party system. 
There are those who believe that 
such a system might eventually 
evolve in Yugoslavia, but that 
day seems far off. The fear is 
that such a system would inevit- 
ably degenerate into party 
divisions on national and ethnic 
lines which would carry with it 
the seeds of disintegration, the 
loss of national unity and in- 
dependence.

ENERGOINVEST -Sarajevo. the large and complex indus- 
trial organisation of associated labour, is engaged in a 
wide range oF production activities. Some of them are 
projects on a “ turn-key ” basis and are mostly carried 
out by building in the products from their own 
manufactures. 

Today, in Yugoslavia and elsewhere in the world, pro- 
duction of electrical power is of primary importance. 
This concerns not only the supply of urban areas but 
even more the supply to industry. ENERGOINVEST has 
long-established experience in building complete projects 
of various types, which include also rhose for the pro- 
duction and distribution of electrical power. 

Such complexes musr. of course, be equipped with the 
most up-to-date systems for automatic control. This 
was the reason that prompted ENERGOINVEST. nearly 
20 years ago. to supplement its factories producing elec- 
trical equipment and installations, with the Institute For 
research development and design in the field of auto- 
mation. ENERGOINVEST has specialised factories for 
the production of these automatic control and safety 
systems in industrial processes. The systems produced by 
ENERGOINVEST are built inro many industries such as 
electrical power, chemical, oil and food processing indus- 
tries. coke and cement works, water supply etc. in 
Yugoslavia and throughout the world. An automatic 
dispatch centre for electrical power for a chemical com- 
plex in Iraq is in the process of being completed. 

Systems for dispatch control 

Because oF systematic planning over a number of years. 
ENERGOINVEST has created pre-conditions for its present 
successful activities in rhe building of information and 


telecommunication systems and the elaboration of 
mathematical models and methods of optimum control. 
For the requirements of electrical distribution in Banja 
Luka, which covers an area of 10.000 km> and includes 
32 transmission stations. ENERGOINVEST has built a 
dispatch centre for the control of the whole network 
of 100. 35. and 10 K.v. Within the whole system there 
is a processing computer which gachers information from 
a telemetric system. It processes and memorises this 
information and reports and shows the state of the 
network. A synoptic panel situated in the centre makes 
it possible lor the dispatch controller to see the state 
of the power network and enables him to carry out all 
essential interventions for dealing with possible faults 
in the network. 

Optimum distribution of power media 
With the exception of the system for dispatch control 
of one medium — electrical power — ENERGOINVEST 
produces also a control system for four power media: 
water, steam, gas and electrical power. ENERGOINVEST 
has built such a system for four media, within the com- 
plex of rhe “Steelworks and Mines Combines Zenica.” 
The joint task of dispatch centres of power media in 
this steelworks is to enable the production and distribu- 
tion of power media under the optimum conditions of 
safety and economy. A telemecric system for the 
exchange of information between the complexes and 
dispatch centres, as well as the computer for information 
processing, are used jointly by all four dispatch centres, 
whereas the peripherals, synoptic panel, screens and prints 
are used separately by each centre. These complexes 
were built by ENERGOINVEST on the M turn-key ” 
principle, including the training of personnel.

AS THE Yugoslav economy h 
moves into the second half of a 
the current five-year plan 
period it faces the difficult task 
of meeting ambitious growth 
and investment targets while at 
the same time digesting some 
major constitutional and insti- 
tutional changes which directly 
affect the running of the econ- 
omy. 

The problem is not growth 
itseir. as last year's economic 
performance amply demon- 
strates. In spite of generally 
sluggish economic performance 
in both the Western and 
centrally planned economies 
last Year, Yugoslavia managed 
to ruise its C.NP by 7 per cent 
and economic activity has con- 
tinued at a similarly high rate 
over the first quarter of this 
year. 

As usual, however, this high 
rate of activity, which signi- 
ficantly improved the produc- 
tivity of many enterprises, was 
accompanied both by a rise in 
price inflation to 14 per cent, 
and a deterioration in the over- 
all balance of payments. 

These two factors are still 

causing concern. Last year s pay- 
ments deficit totalled Sl.Sbn, 
compared with a small surplus 
ut SI 50m in 1970. This in itself 
is not unacceptable as the 
1976/SO five year plan budgets 
for a total deficit of S4.7bn oyer 
the plan period, a figure which 
is considered well within accept- 
able financing limits and con- 
sonant with the heavy invest- 
ment needs in plant and infra- 
structure. 

In order to keep this deficit 
un track, however, the 197S 
plan calls for a lower deficit of 
around S125bo, which requires 
a considerable improvement in 
the trade balance this year. Last 
vear exports rose by only 8 per 
cent (FOB), while imports 
l GIF) rose by 30 per cent 
There is some evidence that a 
substantial part of last years 
rise jn imports reflects stock- 


building by many companies in 
anticipation of possible impo rC 

restrictions later this year. 

Some managers and bankers 
also believe that the external 
value of the dinar is a factor 
inhibiting exports. But officials 

deny that the dinar is over- 
valued and point out that it has 
in fact depreciated by 3 to 4 
per cent against the dollar this 
year. 

The rate of growth or both 
imports and exports appear lo 
have slackened over the first 
quarter, but the trend is still 
unsatisfactory. Tourist and 
other invisibles like transit fees, 
emigrant remittances and over- 
seas construction receipts how- 
ever. are holding up well. 


Faster 


Federal Executive Council was 
powerless to take effective cor- 
rective action, which could only 
come after consultation with the 
Republics and Autonomous Pro- 
vinces and the approval of the 
self management interest com- 
munities for foreign relations. 

But, although the self- 

management principle . en- 
shrined in the 1974 Constitution 
and the Associated Labour Act 
gives workers in the basic pro- 
duction units (Basic Organisa- 
tions of Associated Labour — 
BOAL) the right and duty to 
decide on the wage and salary 
levels within their unit, this 
right is in practice constrained 
by a complex series oF checks 
and balances which have been 
built into the system and which 
are evolving with it.

Part of the problem is that 
incomes are rising much faster 
than planned, while investment 
is also at a high level. This 
partly reflects the fact that 
many big investment projects 
are in varying stages of com- 
pletion and are sucking in 
imports without yet producing 
any compensating addition to 
output and exports. But 
restraining incomes in line with 
productivity is clearly as 
difiicult under the self-manage- 
ment system as in more con- 
ventional systems. 

This situation was under- 
lined by federal premier 
Veselin Djuranovic who said 
recently "We behave as if our 
national income were twice 
what it actually is. Beal per- 
sonal incomes are growing 
faster than labour productivity. 
Last year they increased by 6 
per cent — the highest rate for 
a decade. Investment is also too 
great.” 

This cri de coeur from the 
Premier was accompanied by an 
illuminating insight into the 
complex bargaining which is 
now built into the Yugoslav 
system. He stressed that the

One of the constraints In the 
system is the Federal Institute 
for prices, which, in agreement 
with the Republics, makes a 
solemn annual prices agreement 
to which the basic associations 
are supposed to adhere. This 
year the BOALs agreed to try 
to keep producer price increases 
to an average of 8 per cent — 
although some priority sectors 
are to be allowed to raise prices 
higher in order to facilitate 
their self-financing capability or 
the cash flow from which to 
repay foreign loans. 

Such agreements clearly affect 
the economic performance of 
the individual companies at the 
base of the system, which are 
required to operate efficiently 
and profitably. Theoretically 
any BOAL which operates at a 
loss for three years can be 
closed, and persisting in paying 
higher salaries than warranted 
by productivity is clearly one 
way of sinking into a loss- 
making situation. 

This is far from being an 
automatic process, however, and 
last year 1,363 BOALs employ- 
ing 330,000 people worked at a 
loss totalling 14.7bn dinars. 
This, however, was a big 
. improvement over 1976 when 
losses were 29 per cent higher 
and 50 per cent more firms were 
making losses. 

Talking to managers of some 
of the largest industrial groups 
in the highly industrialised and 
fast-growing areas of Slovenia 
and Croatia in particular, it is 
clear that there is a great sense 
of commitment to the self- 
management system which, 
although time consuming, is 
recognised to have considerable 
advantages in raising the level

their lives. It seeks to ensure 
that such decisions are co-ordi- 
nated through a system of dele- 
gates to the various higher in- 
stitutions and kept within the 
overall ideological parameters 
by the capilliary presence of 
the LCY. 

The theory is that the Party 
should be an integral part of 
society, not something above it 
issuing directives in the authori- 
tarian manner associated with 
whal Yugoslavs call the '* man- 
agement socialism ” operating 
on the Soviet system through- 
out Eastern Europe. 

The amnesty last November 
to 218 people convicted of 
political crimes and a further 
356 who were awaiting trial is 
an indicator of confidence that 
the political system is strong 
enough to democratise itself in 
the attempt to catch up with 
the social and economic pro- 
gress which has transformed 
Yugoslav sociely into" a much 
more sophisticated, better edu- 
cated and articulated body than 
the backward, divided, peasant 
nation uf the past.

Yugoslavs have enthusiastic- 
ally grasped their freedom, in- 
cluding that to travel abroad. 
Over J9ra Yugoslavs crossed the 
frontiers last year. For many 
these were just tourist or shnp. 
ping trips— as witnessed by the 
smartly dressed crowds — for 
others educational trips to study 
foreign languages or techniques. 
For nearly a million Yugoslavs 
it means working abroad, learn- 
ing skills and sending much 
needed foreign currency back 
home. 

Economically the country is 
developing rapidly, with .major 
investment projects under way. 
Growth is marred however by 
inflation, a worrying balance of 
payments deficit and slow pro- 
gress in narrowing the huge 
income differentials between 
the industrialised North and the 
South. In spite of the creation 
of 830,000 new jobs over Ihe 


past four years unemployment 
is still high and average pro- 
ductivity rather low. Over 30 
per cent, of the population still 
lives on the land, although 
agriculture is being modernised 
and Yugoslavia is approaching 
self-sufficiency in basic foods. 

A major concern is that 
Yugoslavia will bo pushed inln 
a closer degree or ecu mum-: 
integration with Comcron — 
meaning principally the Soviet 
Union — if the EEC does nui 
give improved access to EEC 
markets and other assistance in 
the new five-year agreemeni 
now under negotiation. There 
are no illusions about the ex- 
pectation that the Soviet Union 
will continue to try and increase 
its influence in whatever way it 
can, particularly after Tito i.s 
no longer around. 

This is one of the rea.-ons 
why Yugoslavia values Us rela- 
tions with the U.S.. China, ihe 
EEC and its other major trading 
partners and il.s role as a leader 
of the non-aligned movement. 
Moreover, behind its acme 
foreign policy stand well- 
equipped armed forces organ- 
ised for national defence 
throughout the territory. 

But this is all essentially pari 
of Yugoslavia's insurance policy. 
The general mood is optimistic. 
Life has got heller and, more 
important, people clearly expect 
it to gel better still- Critics of 
the self-management system 
point to the enormous amount 
or lime spent negotiating com- 
plex agreements at ail levels. 
But one of the results is a lu^h 
level of social cohesion. 

All this enabled Party Secre- 
tary Stane Dolanc to declare 
recently that “Today Yugoslavia 
is one of the most stable coun- 
tries in the world." Keeping il 
so will require considerable 
skill. But as the Yugoslavs look 
round at their neighbours in 
both East and West, one of them 
told me, they tend to echo 
Maurice Chevalier's considered 
view on life in general: “Not 
bad—cspceially when one con- 
siders the alternative.”

THE STORY of Anglo- Yugoslav 
trade in recent years is one of 
■ ^^emng . Yugoslav trade 
deficit which reflects not only 
the Internationa] recession but 

the seeming inability on both 
sides to make the best of avail- 
able opportunities. 

The actual problem of Anglo- 
Yugoslav trade spelt out in the 
language of -figures means that 
in 1977 British exports to 
Yugoslavia were £176m against 
£128.4m in 1976. while imports 
from Yugoslavia were £40.5m 
(£33. 5m). In the first three 
months of this year British 
exports were £34.Sm t£35.9m in 
the^ corresponding period of 
^TT) and imports £9.3in 
(£lL.4m). This means a Yugo- 
slav trade deficit of £134. am in 
1977 against £94.9m in 1976 and 
of £25. 5m in the first quarter of 
this year against £24.5m in the 
first quarter of 1977. So the 
deficit is still rising. 

Understandably, the Yugo- 
slavs are . far from happy, like 
those British business partners 
who see in Yugoslav deals more 
than a onenoff chance. Some of 
the impediments to mutual 
trade are stubborn, particularly 
the Common Agricultural Policy 
of. the EEC which reduced 
British imports of Yugoslav 
meat and meat products to a 
minimal level. 

There are also, the Yugoslavs 
argue, other hurtful arrows in 
the quiver of the EEC. They 
feel that if only they succeed 
in renegotiating their agree- 
ment -with the EEC. trade with 
the 'Nine, including Britain, will 
look up.’ But even if the nego- 
tiations yield all they want the 
effect on trade with Britain 
•could be less significant than 
they expect. 

It is not just one single 
factor which keeps Anglo- 
Yugoslav trade within relatively 
narrow limits. The April ses- 
sion of the Anglo-Yugoslav 
Trade Council lAYTC) in Bel- 
grade.. an annual event, was 
devoted to a searching debate 
on the reasons for the inade- 
quate trade turnover and the 
quest for a cure... . 

- The two-day .session arrived at 
•eondusions. an«l made reeom- 
xpendations . which could help. 
They may also be of practical 
significance since AYTC, pre- 
sided over on the British side 
by Lord -Ebbisham, ranks some- 
where midway between a com- 


®l*vs failed to explore to the 
fullest extent the British 
market. British business too 
is orten ignorant of 
available opportunities and as 
a consequence is down the 
league Table among exporters to 
Yugoslavia, while West Germany 
leads and Japan, is rapidly 
moving up. 

It is not only inadequate 
market exploration — thuugh 
unlike the Comecon countries 
Yugoslavia is not a closed book, 
there is no foreign trade 
monopoly, negotiations with end- 
users are direct and not 
channelled through govern- 
mental institutions — it is simply 
the old story of prices which 
are not competitive, delivery 
dates which are disregarded and 
quality which is not always of 
the best. It is of course candidly 
admitted by Yugoslavs that io 
these respects some of their 
enterprises can vie with the 
British. 

In Belgrade, at the AYTC 
Session, the Yugoslavs identified 
some of the goods they wish tu 
export. They include fibre glass, 
non-ferrous metals, furniture, 
cutler}', transformers and tex- 
tiles. But both sides were aware 
that it will be extremely difficult 
to balance the books bilaterally. 

Hence co-operation and co- 
production arrangements with a 
view to sales on third markets 
could help to revitalise Anglo- 
Yugoslav trade. Lately, contracts 
concerned with the . production 
of chemicals, textiles and metals 
and with shipbuilding have 
featured and there is also a con- 
siderable rise in technology 
Transfer at enterprise level. 

But there is a snag, as a 
spokesman of a leading British 
engineering company explained. 
Long-term co-operation*. o con- 
tracts enjoy certain taxation and 
profit repatriation privileges. 
Such privileges do not but Ought 
to apply to short-term contracts 
since in view of the fact. that 
technological progress in gather- 


ing long-term contracts involves 
risks for both sides as they do 
not make allowance for process 
or product changes. 

However, co-operation is a 
sector _ where Anglo-Yugoslav 
economic relations have shuwn 
a moderate degree of success. 
There are altogether 637 co- 
operation L-onlracis in existence 
— many of them minor. The 
British share in industrial co- 
operation now in operation is 
seven. 

British interest in joint 
venture enterprises has been 
less marked. These enterprises, 
in which the foreign partner 
can hold half the equity and 
contribute his share not only, 
to quote the new Act which 
has been effective since April 
1 7, ] 978, ” in foregn currency 
of special interest for the 
foreign exchange and pay- 
ments balance of Yugoslavia " 
but also in plant, equipment, 
pa lent rights and know-how, 
have boon relatively popular 
with foreign investors. 


Largest 


Since 19C7, when the original 
joint venture Act was passed, 
some 164 joint ventures enter- 
prises or companies — all of 
them export-oriented or import- 
substituting — have been estab- 
lished. The largest of them is 
tilt* $700m DINA project, a 
petrochemical complex set up 
jointly by the Zagreb-based 
petroleum corporation SOUR 
DMA and Dow Chemical. It is 
sad to relate that Britain so 
far shares only in eight joint 
ventures. 

Yet joint ventures could 
become a source 'of earnings 
preferable to counter-trade 
deals which British business 
quarters dislike and to their 
credit Yugoslav enterprises do 
not greatly welcome, although 
in certain instances they have 
concluded counter-trade con- 
tracts if with a marked lack 


of enthusiasm. Moreover, the 
joint venture Act permits 
foreign participation all alon 
the fine, even in the field of 
banking, and excludes only 
insurance, commerce and social 
services. Thus foreign part- 
ners can also share in raw 
materials exploration and 
exploitation. 

What the Yugoslavs would 
like io sec in their dealings 
with Britain is a mixture of 
conventional trade and such 
new approaches as eo-opera- 
tion, co-production and above 
all joint ventures. 

lit either respect British ex 
peri en irs are limited. Eight 
instances are hardly enough to 
test the viability of joint ven- 
tures, bui the West Germans, 
who are everywhere m Yugo- 
slavia, have gone into joint ven- 
tures and co-operation with both 
feet and are doing reasonably 
well. Nevertheless, if god will 
alone made trade prosper, pros- 
pects for Britain would be aus- 
picious. 

Alas, conventional as well as 
unconventional economic links 
are a quid pro quo. As the 
British market comes to provide 
more openings for Yugoslav pro- 
ducts, so the Yugoslav market 
will open for British plant and 
machinery. While there can be 
no guarantee, since the Yugo- 
slav economy is not centrally 
controlled and each enterprise 
deals on its own. Yugoslavs can 
only spend as much foreign cur- 
rency on conventional deals as 
they earn abroad. Hence if 
Britain wants to sell more, its 
market must offer more access 
to imports of goods inhibited by 
EEC policies. 

It could be argued that trade 
with Yugoslavia is not worth a 
fight in Brussels, but the Yugo- 
slavs might then shift imports 
and exports to the U.S.. Russia 
and Japan. The situation is 
becoming acute and there is 
little time for procrastination.

As; far as the EEC is con- 
censed, after a joint declaration 
sigiied- in Belgrade in December 
197$ expressing the political and 
economic interest of the Com- 
munity in Yugoslav -independ- 
ence "and prosperity, not much 
happened, until February 1978, 
when - negotiations started on a 
new. agreement to replace the 
current five year trade agree- 
ment which expires at the end 
of • August. Right from the 
outset the Yugoslavs told the 
commission that the mandate it 
has heen .given was unaccept- 
able They submitted their pro- 
posals fpr a more comprehen- 
sive agreement. 

'Yugoslavia would like to 
include in - the agreement, in 
addition to trade, co-operation 
in ; various other fields, such as 
financial, industrial and tech- 
nical" J co-operation, transport, 
tourism, environmental protec- 
ti on; and. social questions, mainly 
regarding Yugoslav guest 
workers. It. would also like 
goods which will be manufac- 
tured in’ the free zone *° be set 
.up. with Italy under the Osimo 
agreement to be considered as 
community products. 

Regarding trade, the Yugo- 
slavs would like some tariff and 
other- obstacles removed, a move 
liberal application of the 
general system ol preferences 
the right to participate in public 
tenders,, quotas for imports of 
some agricultural produce, free 
of variable duties. They insist 
that, in a crisis no unilateral 
decisions by the' EEC -should be 
fakea but rather that solutions 


should be found in mutual con- 
sultations. 

The EEC Council of Ministers 
is scheduled to deliberate again 
on the new mandate lo be given 
the commission on June 27, and 
negotiations will resume in mid- 
July. The feeling in Belgrade is 
that negotiations should not 
drag on indefinitely but also 
that they should not be rushed. 
If need be, the present agree 
ment could be extended for a 
few months. 

It would be wrong to infer 
from all this that, the Yugoslavs 
expect others to solve ihcir 
problems for them. They have 
been well aware of their short 
comings in foreign trade, and 
are openly discussing them. 
Their first conclusion has been 
that they must organise heifer 
internally and abroad. It has 
been decided to establish joini 
representative offices abroad 
which would bring together all 
representatives of Yugoslav 
enterprises, banks, etc. This, it 
is hoped, will result in better 
co-ordination, elimination of 
mutual competition and also in 
better control. 

Much more effort will have to 
be paid to market research and 
to fairs, exhibitions, promotion 
tours aud other tools familiar tu 
more experienced traders. 
Fashions and tastes will have to 
be taken into account. Co-oper- 
ation with local businessmen 
will have to be improved. Much 
more attention has to be paid 
to co-operation with firms from 
the developed countries in third 
markets, especially in the LDCs. 

Another field which leaves 
much to be desired is informing 
foreigners willing to invest, or 
sell or buy in 'Yugoslavia of the 
regulations in various fields; the 
more so since new laws have 
been in effeet this year about 
which not enough is known 
abroad. Examples are joint ven- 
tures. foreign firms’ representa- 
tive offices, counter-trade, bank- 
ing and credit systems and the 
foreign trade regime. 

Yugoslavs also admit that 
their products are often nol 
competitive enough, he it 
because of their price (in that 
respect some local critics think 
that fhe currency is overvalued) 
or quality and delivery terms. 

The awareness of these shorl* 
comings is aculc, and recogni- 
tion that higher exports are the 
prerequisite of growth and 
investment is now being im- 
pressed on everybody.

KRKA 


Pharmaceutical and Chemical Works 
Novo mesto 


There are not many factories 
that can pride themselves on 
such rapid development and 
expansion as KRKA. In 1954, a 
Pharmaceutical Laboratory was 
established at which only nine 
.people were employed but in 
1978 the Pharmaceutical and 
Chemical Works KRKA employ 
more than 00 people, among 
them 470 university graduates. 

To ensure more and more 
successful manufacture of 
finished products, in KRKA's 
programme much emphasis is 
placed on intensified production 
of basic pharmaceutical sub- 
stances. 


tranquillizers, 1, 4-benzodia- 
zepines {diazepam, medazepam) ; 
semi-synthetic betalactam anti- 
biotics fampicillin, flucloxacillin, 
cefalexin)'; 

iodinated contrast media 
(diatrizoic and acetrizoic acid): 
others , (centrophenoxin, clofi- 
brinic acid, clofibrate. tetra- 
ethyltiuramidsulphide, nicamide. 
etc.) 


KRKA Works, one for the treat- 
ment of rheumatic diseases and 
the other for cardio-vascular and 
<iiseases of the nervous system, 
joined the KRKA enterprise. 
They have grown into well- 

known recreation and protective, 
as well as therapeutic and 

restorative, centres. 


Biosynthesis 


There are promising feasibili- 
ties in the Fermentation plant 
where antibiotics, vitamins and 
enzymes arc* produced. On the 
European scale, the present 
capacity of this plant is equal to 
rhat of medium-size enterprises, 
but it will be greatlv enlarged 
by 19S0. 

Since 1H75. KRKA has been 
the holder «»f the FDA product 
licence fm- the antibiotics 

oxytetraeyeline di hydrate, oxy- 
tetracyciine hydrochloride and 
bacitracin zinc, feed grade. In 
addition m these, oxytetraeyeline, 
feed grade is produced and the 
technological process for the 
synthesis of vitamin B lif feed 
grade has already been 
developed. 

Continuous operation of this 
as well as of the other plants is 
ensured by KRKA’s own energy 
supply equipment. 

Environment contamination 
and river pollution are pre- 
vented, or reduced to a mini- 
mum. by using a modern and 
highly efficient waste-water 
purifying system. 


Final products 

The drugs are manufactured 
on the assembly line in a build- 
ing with a floor space of 16,000 
square metres. The capacity, 
sufficient at present, can be 
rapidly expanded in case of need. 
KRKA’s 176 pharmaceutical 
specialities cover every field of 
modern drug therapy. Many of 
them are manufactured in 
co-operation with world-wide 
manufacturers of pharma- 
ceuticals. 


Institute of Research and 


Development 

At the KRKA Institute of 
Research and Development, 
fundamental and applied 
researches are carried out and 
innovatory processes as well as 
KRKA’s development are 
studied. The research work 
has produced 74 inventions, 308 
patent applications and 1S2 
patents granted not only in 
Yugoslavia but also in many 
European countries, U.S. A., 
Canada, Japan, India, Australia 
and elsewhere. 


Chemical synthesis 


In the plant for flexible 
chemical synthesis, various 
important pharmaceutical sub- 
stances are synthesized using 
KRKA’s own technological pro- 
cesses which were developed at 
the KRKA Institute of Research 
and Development. For all these 
inventions patents were either 
granted or applied for. 

The most important areas of 
production of pharmaceutical 
substances are as follows: 


Medicinal herbs 

In addition to the modern 
pharmaceutical manufacture, 
KRKA appreciate and cultivate 
the traditional gathering, treat- 
ing and use of medicinal herbs. 
These herbs, their extracts and 
essential oils are exported to 
numerous countries all over the 
world. 


Cosmetics 


As body care contributes to 
human well-being, KRKA allo- 
cated a considerable part of their 
production capacity to the manu- 
facture of various cosmetics. 


Export and activity abroad 

Since 1966. when the first 
noticeable results were obtained, 
the value of exports has been 
constantly increasing. In 1977, 
it reached US$ 22.S69.000. 

KRKA export their products 
to West European and developed 
overseas countries, to the 
COMECON countries and, more 
and more, to the developing 
countries in Africa. Asia and 
South America. To West Euro- 
pean and developed overseas 
countries, pharmaceutical sub- 
stances. medicinal herbs and 
mushrooms are exported . and to 
the COMECON countries 
pharmaceutical substances and 
final drugs. With some of the 
COMECON countries there is 
also a successful co-operation in 
new drug research: knowledge as 
well as specialists are exchanged. 

There are only a few develop- 
ing countries in Africa and Asia 
in whose markets KRKA’s pro- 
ducts are not to be found. Besides 
exporting activity, KRKA enter- 
tain technical relations with 
pharmacologists in numerous 
developing countries and render 
them not only professional but 
also technological assistance. So, 
in 1974, the joint enterprise 
Dawa Pharmaceuticals Ltd. was 
founded in Kenya. The KRKA 
founder’s share amounted to 
one third of the required capital, 
the rest was shared by Kenyan 
investors. Both the construction, 
and the equipment of the factory 
were entrusted to KRKA and the 
first modem pharmaceutical 
factory in East Africa was ready 
for production in 1977. 

With such creative co-opera- 
tion KRKA assist the developing 
countries in their endeavours for 
a better life.

Growing success in 
self management 


IF. AS is frequently the case, 
businessmen or others from 
capitalist countries start dis- 
cussing the Yugoslav system of 
worker self-management in 
terms of worker participation 
a la Bulloek they are likely tu 
be quickly, but politely, cor- 
rected. 

Worker participation implies 
participation in a system w’herc 
somebody else more important 
bolds the real initiative and 
real power, one is likely tn hear. 
Under the Yugoslav system the 
enterprise is owned by the 
workers. managers are 
appointed by the workers, to 
whom they are responsible, and 
the workers themselves through 
their various self-management 
institutions decide on invest- 
ment and production plans and 
the final distribution of the 
income produced. 

This theory is codified into 
law at enormous length — the 
Associated Labour Act aionc 
consists of over 300 pages and 
671 regulations — and is 
variously viewed as a blue- 
print for Utopia or a recipe for 
unmanageability. 

To find out how it can work- 
out in practice 1 went to une 
of Yugoslavia's must successful 
industrial concerns — the Iskra 
electrical and electronic 
engineering Kombinat in 
Ljubljana which has averaged 
a 20 per cent growth rate over 
the last decade, a 1977 turnover 
of over S500m and exports of 
S80m. 

Physically Ljubljana is still 
very much a Hapsburg city — 
one of a dozen or so central 
European cities whose funda- 
mental style and elegance 
derives from the elegant 
baroque public buildings and 
squares planned by the Empress 
Maria Theresa and Franz Josef 
IL It is the capital of the mainly 
catholic Republic of Slovenia, 
which is relatively poor in raw- 
materials but has a long tradi- 
tion of industrialisation and 
trade, mainly with neighbouring 
Italy and the former Hapsburg 
hinterland. 

The headquarters of Iskra 
itself is situated in an elegant 
skyscraper block, flanked, signi- 
ficantly, by the Ljubljana ka 
Bank building, another sky- 
scraper designed to withstand 
shocks of all kind — this afier 
all is a seismic area as the 
recent earthquake in neighbour- 
ing Friuli bears witness. 

At the heart of the Iskra 
Kombinat are the 72 Basic 
Organisations of Associated 
Labour (BOAL). The funda- 
mental characteristic of a BOAL 
throughout Yugoslavia is that if 
must be a clearly defined cosl 
and profit centre producing 
measureablo goods or services. 
In practical terms in the indus- 
trial sector til is usually means a 
factory producing a product or 
products. Members of a BOAL 
have the right to remain 


independent or to voluntarily 
join together with other Boal's 
for purposes of joint marketing, 
research and development or 
other common services. 


The Yugoslav system rests on 
the belief that the production 
units are the best judges of how 
to produce efficiently. The final 
shape of the five-year plan is 
agreed after an infinitely com- 
plex series of discussions on a 
two way basis involving the 
BOALs, and the various co- 
ordinating bodies at a trade 
union. Republican or Provincial 
and Federal levels. 


uf the banking structure. The 
bank rerorm was designed to 
reduce fhe autonomous power 
uf the banks and their former 
dc facto close relationship with 
the political power structure in 
in the Republics and Pro- 
vinces, and also to create a 
direct link between production 
and finance. 


The five-year plan worked out 
by and for each individual 
BOAL has lo be approved by a 
qualified majority of the 
workers themselves und becomes 
in effect their plan, for which 
they are all collectively respon- 
sible. 


Under the new banking laws 
the banks themselves no longer 
have any capital of their own 
but only their reserves plus the 
deposits made by the BOALs 
(and households). Delegates 
from ihe BOALs arc themselves 
physically represented as the 
de facto “shareholders” of the 
Banks. 


But the five year plans are 
broken down into annual plans 
which are much more detailed 
but provide a vital element of 
flexibility in changing market or 
other conditions. 


Technical 


This much more technical 
document doc> not have to bo 
approved by the Workers 
Assembly — that is io say all 
workers — but by ihe Workers 
Council, which is a much 
smaller body consisting of dele- 
gates from the Workers Assem- 
bly. In practice if seems that 
one of the keys io the efficient 
working of the BOAL is the 
degree of competence, skill and 
dedication of the Workers 
Council. 

In Iskra's case the 72 BOALs 
and 47 production units are 
organised inti, >eccn so-called 
Work Organisations. These 
correspond roughly to divisions 
in western terms and are 
organised on functional lines. 
Iskra also has five Work 
Organisations .»f Gammon Ser- 
vices, which provide joint ser- 
vices like daia processing, 
marketing and financial 
services. 

The Apex of the pyramid, or 
third level, is Iskra itself t which 
is called a Composite Organisa- 
tion «»f Associated Labour 
(COAL) or. more familiarly a 
Kombinal This provides the 
link between the operating 
companies, the divisions and 
joint services. 

The Kombinal itself is not a 
holding company on the 
Western pattern because the 
capital n[ even the largest 
Kombinat is held individually 
by the BOALs. who make use 
or their ow n su-called .“Internal 
Banks” uhvh operate in effect 
as the finance division to man- 
age their cash-Ili i w. The BOALs 
also have a direct relationship 
with the commercial banks, a 
relationship which has been 
reinforced by the latest reform 


In order tt satisfy the financ- 
ing requirements of commerce 
and industry the banks are free 
to associate themselves with 
other banks, and borrow either 
domestically or abroad, but 
within limits set down by . the 
National Bank of Yugoslavia in 
conformity with plan guide- 
lines and the state of the 
balance uf payments. 

Because of the in-buiit ten- 
dency of the Yugoslav economy 
in its present developing state 
tu suck in imports at a high 
rare, a major effort is now 
taking place to give much 
greater responsibility to BOALs 
by linking the availability of 
foreign exchange for imports lo 
their own export generating 

capacity. Each republic and 
autonomous province also has 
the responsibility to ensure that 
iis balance of payments position 
remains within the Federally 
agreed limits. 

It remaius lo be seen how 
I his works out in practice as 
the new liws have just been 
introduced. But they do demon- 
strate the seriousness of 
attembts tu render the self- 
maoageuient system both more 
responsible and mure efficient 

Efficiency however also 
depends on the level of tech- 
nical skill and competence of 
professional management Much 
suspicion r» the Yugoslav 
system abroad stems from the 
image of an ecom>my in the 
hands of an undobtedly com- 
mitted and enthusiastic but 
managerially and technolo- 
gically naive shop floor. 

Certainly efficient running 
of self-managed enterprises de- 
pends in large part on the level 
of industrial experience, 
sophistication and awareness of 
the workers themselves, and this 
varies considerably between 
the established industrial areas 
in Slovenia, Croatia and parts 
of Serbia and the former agri- 
cultural areas in the first throes 
of industrialisation. But it also 
depends on the managerial 
skills of the professional 
managers who are appointed, 
and dismissed, by the Workers 
Councils. 

One of the principal aims of 
the self-management system, as 


it develops, is to raise Abe level 
of skill and awareness of the 
Workers Councils. Already in 
a big group like Iskra even- 
effort is made to elect profes- 
sionally competent workers and 
technical staff both to the 
Workers Councils themselves 
and the various executive com- 
mittees which meet frequently 
to monitor management per 
formance. 

At the same time, however, 
the business management board, 
which consists entirely of 
professional managers, hired 
by tbe Workers Council 
precisely for their competence, 
has full responsibility for the 
range of executive decisions io 
marketing, finance and produc- 
tion. 

Both the formal management 
and production workers are 
part of a self-management whole 
whose aim is to make their 
enterprise as efficient as pos- 
sible. Because the self-manage- 
ment institutions go beyond the 
sphere of production and also 
include people in their capacity 
as consumers or members of 
local communities there arc 
several constraints both in the 
field of pricing policy and in- 
come distribution. 

By and large, nowever. enter- 
prises are expected to operate 
profitably, and theoretically 
they can be closed down, and 
workers found other jobs, if they 
make losses for three consecu- 
tive years. 


Improvement 


Last year 1,363 BOALs em- 
ploying 330.000 workers made a 
loss totalling YD 14.7bn. This 
was an improvement on 1976 
when loss-making enterprises 
were SO per cent greater and 
losses 29 per Cent higher. But 
the fact remains that many of 
them were perennial loss- 
makers and could not be closed 
for a variety of reasons. The 
railways for example run at a 
loss and so do several large 
enterprises; often government 
fixed prices are blamed for this. 

Certainly there are weaknes- 
ses in the system, but it is part 
of the nature of things in Yugo- 
slavia that people are prepared 
to admit them frankly and dis- 
cuss them with an eye to im- 
provement. 

All sides recognise, for 
example, that the Yugoslav 
system entails the expenditure 
of a great deal of time in com- 
plex bargaining and explana- 
tion at all levels. But it does 
result in a sense of participa- 
tion which goes far towards 
smoothing the implementation 
of policies once approved, it 
also produces both an enthusi- 
asm far high investment and a 
tendency to distribute higher 
incomes than justified by pro- 
ductivity alone.

IRONICALLY, THE interna- 
pre-requisites for Yugo-

ptmey of national independence 
aoa iMD-^hgnsnent were created 
DY a typical act of Great Power

tKtte when Winston Churchill

a piece of paper on which was 
jotted “ Yugoslavia 50-oCP ■’ 
Stjflon nodded agreement. When 
Tttn heard of this he was 
reportedly livid at being treated 
as “the short change of inter- 
national politics.” 

He subsequently took advant- 
age of this tacit acceptance of a 
shared sphere of influence to 
break free from Soviet <hege-

on *he Communist nature of the 
port-war Yugoslav State or join-

population or resources would 
themselves warrant. Much of 
the credit goes to President Ti | 0 
himself, lone survivor of a 
world of former political giants 
aod stirring if dangerous times. 

His own personal prestige, 
and by reflection that of the 
Yugoslavia he represents, 
reached a new height with his 
recent official visits first to 
Moscow and then on: via North 
Korea to Peking and then to 
Washington with a stop-off in 
London. 

But Yugoslavia's foreign 
policy goes far beyond the 
establishment of good relations 
with all three superpowers, vital 
though this is Jo Yugoslavia’s 
equilibrium. 

President Tito's experience 
and prestige as a founder- 
member of the non-aligned 
movement also makes Yugo-

and qualified corp of diplomats, 
and a highly foreign affairs- 
oriemated news agency, Tanjug. 
In the latest Government re- 
shuffle the former Foreign 
Minister, Milos Minic, was re- 
placed by Josip Vrhovec, a 50- 
yea r-o Id ex- journalist and for- 
mer LCY Presidency member 
from Croatia. 

It was largely a reflection or 
Yugoslavia's position between 
East and West that Belgrade 
was chosen for the follow-up 
meeting to the Helsinki Con- 
ference on European Security. 
There the Yugoslav hosts tried 
to steer the conference away 
from a stcnJe confrontation on 
the human rights issue, seen a* 
a propaganda contest between 
the two super powers, and on 
to a discussion of some of the 
other isuses dear to Yugoslavia's 
heart, such as measures to re- 
duce military tensions and 
greater co-operation in the eco- 
nomic field. 

H was a disappointment to 
Yugoslavia that the Belgrade 
conference was not a great suc- 
cess. although they share the 
general feeling that with the 
decision to hold another follow- 
up meeting in Madrid at least 
the principle of continued moni- 
toring has been agreed. 

Now Belgrade is preparing 
for another important inter- 
national meeting — the Minis- 
terial meeting of the non- 
aligned countries which meets 
there in July to discuss the 
agenda for the forthcoming non- 
aligned summit due to be held 
in Havana next year.

addition, they may be 
established in fields which are 
otherwise reserved lor the __ 
socialised sector. Those wishing GuOSGIl 
to found a contractual organisa- 
tion firstmake a mutual contract The form of Contractual 
as to what e ach of them will Organisation has been chosen 

because it serves several pur- 
poses. First, no social capital is 
needed and privately owned 
money is mobilised, which has 
been relatively abundant, especi- 
ally among returning guest 
workers. Second the organisa- 
tions should satisfy the growing 
demand for goods and services 
in which the socialised sector is 
either not interested, or is un- 
able to provide quickly enough. 
In Yugoslavia there has been a 
growing need for services of 
all kinds, repair shops, and the 
tike. Third, new jobs can be 
created comparatively quickly 
and with lower investment than 
in the public sector. This is 
very important in view of the 
high number of job seekers, in 
spite of very impressive figures 
of new jobs created each year. 
It has been estimated that 
several hundred thousand 
people could find employment 
in the small business sector 
within a short period of time. 

For all those reasons it has 
been the proclaimed policy of 
the League of Communists and 
of the Government to support 
the small business sector, be it 
in its classical form of private 
handicraft, the newly designed 
Contractual Organisations, or 
the socialised organisations 
dealing in services and produc- 
tion on a small scale. In spite 
of that, however, very little has 


been done in the four years 
since the 1 0th congress of the 
LCY and the adoption of the 
new constitution. 

The reasons for this seem to 
lie with local governments, who 
distrust any private initiative in 
the belief that It will inevitably 
strengthen the capitalist ele- 
ments in society and endanger 
socialism. Therefore they 
heavily tax private business, do 
not provide for space, etc. 
Repeated criticism has not 
changed their opposition. The 
result is that there are regions, 
even whole republics, with no 
Contractual Organisation at all. 
On the oiher hand in some re- 
publics Contractual Organisa- 
tions have been increasing in 
□umber and prospering. 

Macedonia, for example has 
no Contractual Organisations. 
Its premier told foreign corre- 
spondents a few months ago 
that there has been a lack of 
understanding on the part of 
local authorities. The first Con- 
tractual Organisation in Serbia 
was founded late last year in a 
village. Kobisnica, in the 
eastern part of the republic, 
employing initially 29 workers. 
25 of them women. It was 
founded by two former guest 
workers. They receive a 30 per 
cent, share of the income and 
the labour force the rest 

Their contract with the 
respective commune is for five 
years, after which the organisa- 
tion will become a BOAL. 
Belgrade lias just one Con- 
tractual Organisation founded 
recently. 

As opposed to that. Slovenia 
has been supporting Contractual 
Organisations for years now and 
has more than the rest of Yugo- 
slavia. 30 out of the total of 37. 
Some have been publicised by 
the Press, like two organisations 
founded by a couple, Valerija 
and Franjo Verdnik in the 
village of Grins pri Zalcu. 
which together had a total 
revenue of 13.5tn dinars 
(£400.000) last year and em- 
ployed 12 people. The two 
owners earned some 800.000 
dinars (£23,000) after tax. 
which is approximately 12 times 
more than the average for a 
Yugoslav worker. 

In view of the widespread 
suspicion of many local authori- 
ties it was a big surprise when! 
among the 16 winners of the 
First of May awards of the 
Yugoslav Chamber of Economy 
from all over the country there 
was a Contractual Organisation 
of Associated Labour. It was, 
of course, from Slovenia: Tajfun 
of Planina pri Sevtiici. This 
has been interpreted as signal- 
ling the interest which the 
Yugoslav community has in 
those organisations. Whether 
the message will be understood 
by those for whom it has been 
meant remains to be seen.

What Is ISKRA? 


ISKRA is the largest Electronic Company in Yugoslavia with a 
25 per cent total share of the Yugoslav electronic market. By 
the end of 1977 ISKRA employed 27,000 people: 1.800 with high 
diploma qualifications. 3,750 school-leavers with “O’ level 
exams. 6.350 qualified technicians: 3.900 people were granted 
scholarship grams. 

There are 61 factories in the ISKRA group, with productivity 
centred in seven major fields: Telecommunication. Automation. 
Electronic Components. Car Components, Consumer Products, 
Capacitors and Batteries. Production has increased by 22 per 
cent in 1977. 

Known for its products world-wide ISKRA has seven commercial 
companies abroad and eight representatives with a total turnover 
of US$1 50m in 1977, of which US$82m was for export. 

The domestic market is covered by 14 offices, 30 shops, 34 
servicing centres and also 300 servicing agents. 

A special emphasis is given to R and D and invention. There are 
1 ,600 R and D engineers, with the institute for quality, to test the 
final products. 

ISKRA has received over 230 awards for the industrial and 
graphic design of its products. 

ISKRA also co-operates with scientists and Research Institutions 
on a large scale to improve its products. 

ISKRA invested 4 per cent of the total turnover in R and D 
in 1977, and within the next four years it will go up to 4.2 per 
cent in order to modernize the existing production programme, 
with most interest in developing the following markets: 

Microelectronics 

With all technological variations including Optoelectronics. 
Semiconductor materials and elements. 

Business and Data Processing Computers: 

Business Computers systems and programming equipment for the 
needs of our economy. Development of Universal basic Micro- 
computers and development of own universal Micro-processing 
circuits. 

Optoelectronics: 

Development of elements of telecommunication relay by optical 
conductors. 

Holography, mainly for use in memory banks. 

Optoelectronics for measuring. 

Integrated Telecommunication Systems: 

On the basis of digital technology gaining production of PCM 
Multiplex and PCM Commutation. 

Professional isation of Electronic Components: based on 
miniaturisation and new range of components. 

Safety Signalling Systems: 

Equipment for better living conditions. 

Protecting environment and saving energy. 

Electronics for Consumer Goods: 

System and equipment for automation: 

In industry, power industry and traffic control, with use of 
microelectronics and business and data processing equipment. 

The special success which ISKRA has already achieved in some 
very important projects (Automation, Microelectronics and 
Optoelectronics) is a solid base for ISKRA success in the future. 

ISKRA LIMITED is the wholly owned British subsidiary and is . 
responsible for marketing and selling the entire range of products 

of the Parent Group throughout the United Kingdom. It 
achieves this by maintaining warehouse stocks at the Coulsdon 
premises and making products available through a chain of 
selected distributors throughout the countiy. A full list of 
distributors is available on application. 

An impressive and comprehensive showroom is situated at 
Coulsdon where ISKRA products may be examined and 
discussed with technical selling staff.

old habits of thinking in terms 
of centrally plamu-d bi-lateral 
trading. Part nf the problem 
is that Yugoslavia, like so many 
other developing countries, first 
does not produce goods which 
are needed on developed mar- 
kefs and secondly lacks the 
marketing skills and aggressive- 
ness to sell what goods and 
services if does have to offer. 

This criiici-ui is partly 
accepted by the Yugoslavs, but 
arguing fur a much wider 
negotiating mandate in the 
forthcoming EEC - Yugoslav 
negotiation*, they u-nd to widen 
the argument. Assuming their 
ole as spokesmen for the 

developing wnrld. diplomats and 
trade experts argue that what 
at slake are much larger 
issues nf access it, markets for 
developing countries in general. 
In Yugoslavia’s case, they also 
argue that an ungenerous and 
narrow - minded economic 
approach tn Yugoslavia’s prob- 
lems could force the country 
either to reduce jj$ imports 
from the EEC. or step up its 
trade with ihe Comecon coun- 
tries — or bolh. 

It is loth lo increase the 
proporliun of its trade with 
Comecon for both political and 
economic reason*. First, it docs 
ot want lo be in a position 
here pressure Tor political or 
other cuiii-L-ssion* could be 
reinforced by economic 
■guraents such as a reduction 
— ' oil or other strategic 
products. Secondly, it believes 
that the future of the self- 
management system must lie in 
increasing the general efficiency 
cl the technical level of 
.goslav enterprises to a 
Western level. 

For this it requires access to 
Western technology. Western 


markets aud Western marketing 
skills. This will never be 
achieved ;f an increasing 
proportion of Yugoslav trade is 
dune with the centrally 

planned economies with 
their comfortable long-term 

purchasing arrangements and 
lack of stimulus for 
improvement 

Significantly, Yugoslav officials 
believe that this point is much 
more sym pathetically under- 

stood by American than by the 
Community, while other trading 
partners like Japan arc also 
scouring Yugoslavia in search 
of products to buy in exchange 
for their increased exports. 


Security 


Lucking around the 
diplomatic horizon as seen from 
Belgrade, however, Yugoslavia's 
principal aim of preserving its 
security, independence and 
non-aligraent appears to be 
assured. 

The Treaty of Osirao, which 
finally resolved the- frontier 
between Italy and Yugoslavia, 
means that Yugoslavia's 
principal border with the West 
is now one of the most relaxed 
anywhere in the world. 

Slovene unhappiness with Uic 
treatment of its minorities in 
Carinthia and Burgenland 
remains an issue iu Austro- 
Yugoslav relations. But those 
with its direct Comecon neigh- 
bours are generally good, except 
in the case of Bulgaria, where 
the Macedonian question 
bubbles beneath the surface. 

Fur the average Yugoslav all 
this is translated in freedom to 
travel all over the world 
without a visa in most cases, if 
he has the money to do so. No 
visas are required for 
foreigners to enter Yugoslavia 


either, except in special cases. 
Visas are required to and from 
Uic Soviet Union, for example, 
because the Russians insist on 
putting Yugoslavia in thy 
category of a Western country 
for these purposes. 

Tt all seems very relaxed. 
Once again, however, behind 
this genuine desire for 
maximum freedom and the 
minimum of bureaucratic inter- 
vention the Yugoslav authorities 
take the security question very 
seriously. The armed forces 
are reportedly well-equipped 
and a decentralised system of 
“ global defence ” means that 
millions of Yugoslav's can be 
mobilised within hours. 

At the same time the secret 
police keep close tabs on the ex- 
tremist nationalist groups and 
suspected Stalinists, both in 
Yugoslavia and abroad. 

One of the leading Stalinists, 
Mileta Perovic. was abducted 
outside Yugoslavia, according to 
his defence lawyer, and then 
arrested and brought to trial in 
Yugoslavia on charges of plot- 
ting against the State. For ihis 
he recently received a 20-year 
jail sentence. The Yugoslav 
authorities also responded to the 
recent West German request for 
ihe extradition of suspected 
West German terrorists from 
Yugoslavia with a quid pro quo 
demand for the extradition ot 
Creation extremists from W’csl 
Germany. 

It is quite clear lliat the Yugo- 
slavs have taken President 
Lincoln’s dictum that the “price 
of freedom is eternal vigilance” 
very closely to heart This allows 
Yugoslavia to relax from a posi- 
tion Of strength and that is 
clearly how they intend to keep 
it

Merchant banks estimated 
to have £ 117 m in reserves 


BY MICHAEL BLANDEN 


THE HIDDEN reserves of the 
London merchant banks could 
total as much as £2 17m, it is 
estimated by a firm of stock- 
brokers in its latest analysis 
of the accepting bouses 
seetor. 


In an effort lo arrive at the 
hidden strength of the top 
merchant banks Laing and 
Cruicksbank find wide varia- 
tions in the amount of money 
which has been put away by 
the different hanks. 


Among the biggest banks, 
they suggest :hat the largest 
amounts of inner reserves arc 
held by Schroders. with 
£33 -8m and Hambro.s with 
£33.1m, while Morgan Gren- 
fell is estimated to have some 
£27m and Kleinwort Benson 
£16m. Hill Samuel's hidden 
reserves are put at a modest 
£3.3 ra. while some of the 
smaller banks are estimated 
to have little or nothing pat 
away. 

The brokers’ estimates are 
based on ibe evidence to the 


Wilson Committee about the 
financial institutions. This 
indicated that, while the 
figures vary from bank to 
bank, the Industry showed on 
average a multiple of total 
deposits to their own re- 
sources of about 12 times. 


While the brokers see con- 
tinuing growth for the bigger 
merchant banks, they are con- 
cerned that the smaller groups 
in the industry, lacking a list 
of major corporate clients, may 
gradually lose ground.

Saudi Arabia's erode oil 
exports fell again, in May, some 
LI 9m barrels/day below (be 
levels of the month before, 
according to figures released 
by the Ministry of Petroleum 
and Mineral Resources writes 
Jamie Buchan in Jeddah. 
Average exports of Saudi crude 
dropped to 6.72m b/d in May, 
compared with 7.91m b/d in 
April, and 6-Slm b/d In March. 
This shonld be measured 
against an income from oil

announced budget for 1978/ 
1979 of S33.4bn based on a pro- 
duction ceiling or 8m b/d and 
stable oil prices for the rest of 
the year. 


FOR THE first time tonight it 
was disclosed that President 
Sadat would agree to slight 
border modifications aa the- West 
Bank and the presence of Israeli 
garrisons after the conclusion of 
a peace treaty. 

This emerges from the protocol 
of a meeting between President 
Sadat and Mr. Shimon Peres, the 
Israeli opposition leader, which 
took place in Austria four 
months ago. The protocol was 
released only to-day following 
permission for publication from 
President Sadat this week. 

According to this document the 
Egyptian President recognises 
»he different security considera- 
tions pertaining to Sinai and to 
the West Bank respectively. 

Hence, he has agreed with 
Jordan's consent, for only slight 
border modifications «m the West 
Bank and a continued Israeli 
military presence. 

President Sadat also told Mr. 

Peres that he would be ready 
to complete the first stage of 
the peace negotiations and sign 

an agreement on Sinai provided ..... . . . __ ..

way — although attempts to per- 
suade unions to cut overtime 
working could be part of tbe 
arrangement. 

Depending on what assump- 
tions are made about the way 
in which output is made good 
by higher productivity and over- 
time working a two-hour cur 
could on the basis of Employ- 
ment Department calculations, 
remove between 40.000 and 
200.000 from the official dole 
queue. 

But the number of jobs created 
would be higher than that, and 
unions believe the Department 
has made the most pessimistic 
assumptions. 

The saving in Government 
expenditure would be between 
£250m and £350m. 

Tbe unions' mounting a cam- 
paign for a cut in hours was 
plcfcijd up at the week-end by- 
Mr. Norman Atkinson, Labour 
Party treasurer and a leading 
Tribunite, who said that the 35- 
hour week must he included in 
the General Election manifesto. 

Speaking at the Yorkshire 
miners’ gala, he said tha» it 
would create more jobs without 
inflation. 

As the TUC prepares Its own 
policy document on the issue, the 
confederation of British Industry 
will tell the Chancellor tomorrow 
In talks on the next phase of pay 
policy that any reduction in the 
working week must be resisted 
because it would increase over 
rime working and damage 
Britain's competitiveness. 

So far. Mr. Healey appears to 
prefer the employers’ argument 
while Mr. Albert Booth. Employ- 
ment Secretary, has also been 
warning of the cost consequences 
of a shorter week. 

But that stance could change if 
TUC leaders persuade the 
Government that this is the only 
trade-off really available to it 
this year. . 

Yesterday, Lord Allen of the 
Sbopworkera. and one of the 
senior Right-wingers lo the TUC 
warned that if workers saw Tree 
collective bargaining after July 
a* a chance to use tbeir indus- 
trial muscle, there could be 
disastrous economic conse- 
quences and the disappearance of 
union-Government co-operation.
