Although Vietnam occupies much of our attention. I would again remind honorable members that our policy and diplomacy in Asia cover many other fields. I wish to report to the House some of the more recent developments in the range of multilateral and bilateral relationships we are building up on the economic and social side. ) shall start with the Economic Commission for Asia and the Far East. Since Australia became a regional member of E.C.A.F.E. three years ago we have played an increasing part in its activities. 1 attended the last session of the full Commission and T intend to attend the next session in New Delhi in a few days' time. In our participation in the work of E.C.A.F.E. we are seeking to be good neighbours, in a practical sense, by pooling our experience and expertise in matters of economic development for others to draw on it as they deem appropriate. In return, we profit by the access E.C.A.F.E. affords us to the knowledge of other members of the region.
