The Ambassador in Colombia ( Wiley ) to the Secretary of State

1051. Embtel 890, July 5.75 Minister of Finance, Santamaria, informed us today that he had instructed the Office of Exchange, Import and Export Control, in cooperation with the National Federation of Coffee Growers, to adjust the Colombian minimums on coffee exports to conform strictly with OPA ceiling price equivalents as communicated by this Embassy.

Due to intervening holidays, I do not expect, however, that this will be accomplished before the end of the week.
