§ Mrs. Ewing
asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps have been taken to improve trade with the countries of Eastern Europe in the last three years.
§ Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody
I am glad to say that our trade with Eastern Europe has increased by more than 40 per cent. over the last three years. Our annual trade negotiations with Eastern European countries have aimed at expanding trade as well as bringing it more nearly into balance. Support has been given to British participation in national and international exhibitions in these countries. The full range of Government services for exports is available in these markets.
