Malaya: The Federation is too newly established to show developing trade

trends over the years. Import licenses are required for all products but many are on open general license. Discrimination against hard currency imports bas relaxed very gradually over the years. A legal channel of import through Hong Kong at a premium of 5 to 15 percent affords

opportunity for free import from the dollar area. New Zealand:

Tobacco.---.
Woodworking machinery....
Office machinery and parts.
Tractors and parts....
Books and printed matter......

From 1951 to 1957 import controls in New Zealand were gradually liberalized from the previous tight position resulting from balance of payments difficulties. However, renewed deterioration of the payments position resulted in a new import licensing schedule on Jan. 1,

1958 which generally intensified important restrictions, Nicaragua:

Wheat flour..
Paints, varnishes, and lacquers.-----
Batteries. ------
Evaporated and condensed milk

Quantitative import restrictions in Nicaragua are negligible. However, all imports are subject to import permits which are freely granted provided deposit requirements, where applicable, are met. Deposits, ranging from no deposit (essential items) to 100 percent of c. i. f. value

(nonessentials) are required prior to issuance of the import permit. Norway: 1

Dried fruit...
Tractors...

86 percent of all imports (based on 1953 imports) from the dollar area

have been liberalized.
Paraguay:
• Passenger autos and buses....

Automotive tractors and parts.
Typewriters and parts. -----
Coin counters, cash registers, calculating and bookkeeping machines

In August of 1957 Paraguay abandoned its complicated multiple foreign exchange rate system and established a free import and export

market. Trade is now carried on without restriction of any kind. Peru:

Automobiles, trucks, buses, and parts -----
Tinplate..
Iron and steel pipe..----
Sawmill products.
Textile machinery and parts.-
Pneumatic portable tools...-

There are no restrictions on imports into Peru except a quota limita

tion on automobiles. Rhodesia and Nyasaland: The Federation has not been in existence long

enough to demonstrate marked trends in United States trade. All imports from the United States are subject to license. A few commodities such as wheat and automobiles are subject to quota restrictions. Imports of another long list of items, mainly luxury goods, are prohibited. All other items are on open general license and licenses are automatically

granted. Sweden: 1

Canned fruit and juices.
Passenger cars and parts...
Lube oils...
Dried fruits.

70 percent of dollar imports enter Sweden without license. Switzerland:

Canned shrimp...
Ohewing gum ---

With a few exceptions, all Swiss imports from all countries are free of restriction. There is no discrimination against the United States

in granting licenses for the few restricted groups. Turkey:

Tractors.
Industrial machinery... ------
Lub oils..

All imports from all sources are subject to license and exchange con.
trols, which are presently applied on a very restrictive basis.

Senator FREAR. Senator Williams?
Senator Malone?

Senator MALONE. Could the chairman make a further request from the State Department to furnish the lists of commodities included in all bilateral and multilateral trade agreements, just a list of all sparate commodities?

Senator FREAR. I am sure the chairman of the full committee would extend the same courtesy to you as he did to the Senator from Illinois.

Senator MALONE. The quicker we could get it the better we could question some other witnesses on it.

(The bilateral and multilateral trade agreements previously filed with the committee at the request of Senator Malone (see p. 45) list the commodities on which the United States has granted concessions.)

Senator MALONE. I am very much interested in your testimony and also some of your answers on cross-examination.

Where is your headquarters?
Mr. HOOKER. Niagara Falls, N. Y.
