This article discusses the relevance of the 1964 United Nations (U.N.) Conference on Trade and Development to be held in Geneva. High on the agenda of the U.N. conference will be the question of how the developing countries can expand their exports into the rapidly growing economies of the Soviet bloc. Soviet propaganda has played on the theme that Western trade with the developing countries is exploitable and unstable, and that there are vast possibilities for stable trade with the East on more favorable terms. The conference will provide an opportunity to examine the realities of trade with the Soviet bloc and the kinds of measures needed to advance the interests of the developing countries in this trade.
