Editorial Note

See appropriate entries in the index of the Department of State Bulletin, 1946, for United States participation in the activities of the Specialized Agencies in the carrying out by those Agencies of decisions and recommendations of the General Assembly of the United Nations in the economic and social fields and of the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations. In the cases of major decisions made by the organs of the United Nations in the economic and social fields, which resulted specifically in recommendations to governments, or to the Agencies themselves, or which resulted in the creation of a new Agency, and which concerned an important United States interest, the involvement of United States policy in the United Nations decision-making process is documented in the Foreign Relations series but under a regional or other substantive subject. For United States policy on the proposed establishment of an international trade organization, see the Editorial Note, p. 1260.
