Australia is also taking an active part in the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development. U.N.C.T.A.D. is now an established feature of the United Nations machinery and its permanent headquarters and secretariat are being set up in Geneva.

We know the problems inherent in developing an industrial base while a country is still very heavily dependent on the export of a limited range of primary commodities; and because of this we have not found it difficult to understand many of the desires which have found expression in U.N.C.T.A.D. and to contribute a very worthwhile part to the development of that Conference.
