The Ambassador in Argentina ( Weddell ) to the Secretary of State
[Received August 26.]
Sir: Referring to the Embassy’s despatch No. 780 of July 5,14 I enclose copies of a report dated August 16, 1935, prepared by the Embassy’s Commercial Attaché, giving an account of his recent meetings with officials of the Argentine Ministry of Finance to establish the cause of the discrepancy existing between the statistics of Argentine exports to the United States issued by that Ministry and the returns declared before the American Consulate General in Buenos Aires. Dr. Dye is hopeful that if proof can be given that the value of Argentine goods entering the United States since January 1, 1935, is in excess of the value of American goods entering Argentina, the Argentine authorities will give more liberal exchange facilities to cover imports of American goods into Argentina.
