A series of meetings both of a technical and general nature

delegations of the contracting parties to the Arrangement ha-
ve agreed as follows:

nt the desire of the Italian Government undertake:

b) to space their shipments so as not to disturb the Ital-
ian cotton textile manufacturing industry;
c) to maintain export prices not at undue variance with t-
hose of other exporting countries;
d) to furnish to the appropriate Italian authorities with
information of every shipment in the month of cotton t-
extiles by weight beginning from the shipments of Janu-
2) The Government of the Republic of China and Italy agree to

gement deem desirable. In any event a consultation will t-
ake place before 1 April, 1968.
