Hide / Show Abstract

Further progress was made during 1963 by the mines and factories of the ECAFE region, and also by its building and construction industries. In the mining sector output of tin-in-concentrates fell by 3 per cent for the first half of the year but output of tin metal rose by 5 per cent. Output of iron ore, for the same period, rose by 8 per cent. There was also an increase for bauxite but some decline for manganese. Coal output rose by only 1 per cent, much more slowly than other sources of power, as corresponding increases for crude petroleum and electricity were 8 and 6 per cent.
