ABSTRACT
In this article, the author discusses that Christmas has become a season for summitry, a time when politicians, such as presidents and prime ministers, are either visiting some place else or playing host to a foreign visitor. It states U.S. President Gerald Ford's meeting in Washington with Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and West German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt, who in turn, had spent his weekend in Britain with Prime Minister Harold Wilson. It also adds Ford's departure for France to meet with French President Valery Giscard d'Estaing for the U.S.-French summit in Martinique. Events involving the meeting of Giscard with Soviet Party Leader Leonid Brezhnev, and his hosting of the Common Market summit are also mentioned. Concerns regarding the oil market are also discussed.
