This article examines the outcome of the Conference on International and Economic Cooperation (CIEC) held June 3, 1977 in Paris, France. A dialogue that had begun with much enthusiasm and great hope ended with a faint and joyless note. A report was presented for adoption to a glum and exhausted audience at the Conference's last plenary meeting. The report, approved but unapplauded by the delegates, made a nostalgic reference in its stark preamble to the Conference's earlier resolve to create an equitable and comprehensive program for international economic cooperation. As could be expected, the reactions to the results of the Conference were mixed. While both sides made a feeble effort not to call their dialogue a failure, each insisted on having its own appraisal recorded separately in the final report. Thus, the Group of 19 developing countries were visibly dejected; they found the Conference's conclusions falling short of the objectives envisaged for a comprehensive and equitable program of action designed to create a new international economic order. They noted with regret that most of the proposals for structural changes in the international economic system and certain proposals for urgent actions on pressing problems bad failed to receive the rich countries' support.
