Foreword

Among the most significant developments on the international economic scene in recent years have been those associated with the enlargement of the EEC, some of the problems of which have long been anticipated and some of the consequences of which are even today difficult to foresee. For over a decade it has been obvious that the entry of Britain into the EEC would be likely to call for adjustments in the trading patterns of all her Commonwealth partners, but only comparatively recently have the lines been clearly drawn for the period of intense negotiations that will shape the future trading relations of developing Commonwealth countries with the EEC. For the problems of twenty of these, situated in Africa, the Caribbean and the Indian and Pacific Oceans, Protocol 22 of the Treaty has been put forward by the EEC as a basis for negotiation.
