1. Continuation of the Inter-American Coffee Agreement.

The Chairman informed the Board that, in accordance with its request, he had discussed with legal authorities of the State Department the question of procedures that might be followed in continuing the Inter-American Coffee Agreement and that they were of the view that it would be permissible under Article XXIV of the Agreement for the Board to recommend that the Agreement be continued subject to amendments to be agreed upon later.

After considerable discussion, it was agreed by the Board that the Board should recommend continuation of the Agreement subject to amendments, if any, which might be approved by the Board and the participating governments.
