The Foreign Affairs Committee has under consideration today H. R. 5615, a bill to promote the foreign policy of the United States and to authorize participation in a cooperative endeavor for assisting in the development of economically underdeveloped areas of the world.
The purpose of this bill is to authorize the implementation of what is known as the President's Point IV program for the economic help of the backward or underdeveloped nations of the world. (H. R. 5615 follows:)
[H. R. 5615, 81st Cong., 1st sess. ] A BILL To promote the foreign policy of the United States and to authorize participation
in a cooperative endeavor for assisting in the development of economically underdeveloped areas of the world
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That this Act may be cited as the “International Technical Cooperation Act of 1949”.
SEC. 2. The Congress hereby finds that the United States and other nations of the world have a common interest in the material progress of all peoples, both as an end in itself and because such progress will further the advance of human freedom, the secure growth of democratic ways of life, the expansion of mutually beneficial commerce, and the development of international understanding and good will. The Congress further finds that the efforts of the peoples living in economically underdeveloped areas of the world to realize their full capabilities and to develop the resources of the lands in which they live, can be furthered through the cooperative endeavor of all nations to assist in such development. It is, therefore, declared to be the policy of the United States, in the interest of its people, as well as that of other peoples, to promote the development of economically underdeveloped areas of the world.
SEC. 3. It is the objective of this Act to effectuate the policy set forth in section 2 by enabling the Government of the United States to participate in programs, in cooperation with other interested governments, for the interchange of technical knowledge and skills which contribute to the balanced and integrated development of the economic resources and productive capacities of economically underdeveloped areas. SEC. 4. In carrying out the objective of this Act
(a) the participation of the United Nations, the Organization of American States, and their related organizations and of other international organizations shall be sought wherever practicable; and
(b) the participation of private agencies and persons shall be encouraged,
