The Department of State to the Swedish Legation


In connection with the proposed reciprocal trade agreement between Sweden and the United States, the United States would request that there be included in any such agreement provision for reduction in duties by Sweden on certain products of the United States and assurance against increase in existing duties on certain other products, as indicated in the list attached hereto.4

In addition to the concessions referred to above the Government of the United States would desire that the suggested agreement also include provisions designed to permit the restoration of imports of wheat and wheat flour from the United States to approximately the amounts imported annually in the period 1926–1930.

The United States, of course, reserves the liberty to make such changes in or additions to these proposals as may seem appropriate at any time during the discussions.
