The Italian Embassy to the Department of State 82

Aide Memoire

The International Conference for emigration and immigration to be held in Rome during the first months of 1924 is assuming [Page 120] considerable importance on account of the large number of States that have accepted to participate.

In consideration of this it would perhaps be advisable to have a preliminary meeting of the experts of the Countries most interested in view of determining the technical questions to be discussed by the several sections of the Conference in Rome.

The meeting could take place in December or January in Genoa, Pallanza, Geneva or Ouchy.

The Italian Government would like to know if such a proposal would be agreeable to the Government of the United States and which date and locality would be considered most convenient.
