Regional and International Cooperation

The meeting discussed the advantages of regional collaboration as a means of supplementing the limited resources of island developing and other small disadvantaged countries. The need for an effective organisational framework was emphasised in the Commonwealth Secretariat's introductory paper which, while accepting that the details had to be worked out in individual regions, pointed out that agreement at the highest level of decision-making on the machinery for collaboration was required.
