OTTAWA (CP) The value of exports rose by 5Vi per cent and imports dropped by two per cent in January compared with the previous month, Statistics Canada reported Friday. The value of exports of raw materials was a major factor in the increase, due at least in part to higher prices. Trade with the United Slates was down mainly to a slump in the automotive Japan was a significant factor in the increase in exports. Value of exports was billion and of imports billion. These totals are ad- justed to account for seasonal factors affecting trade flows but they are not adjusted to account for price increases. The trade deficit of mil- lion in January was less than a deficit of million in December. Last January there was a surplus of million, the largest monthly surplus last year, and in nine of the 12 months of 1974 there was a trade surplus. January exports to the U.S. were down 5te per cent from December to billion. Re- duced shipments of automotive products and machinery and equipment ac- counted for a large portion of the decline. Imports from the U.S. were down almost 10 per cent to billion and motor vehicles and parts accounted for much of the decline. Exports of non-food raw materials were up 34 per cent between January, 1974, and last month. There was a four- per-cenl decline in exports of finished products during the same period; a 39-per-cent increase in exports of food products, other than live animals; and a 57-percent decline in exports of live animals. Imports of non-food raw materials rose by 107 per cent during the 12-month period; of finished products, 11 per cent; of food products, 37 per cent; and live animals, four per cent. Between December and January, there was an increase of 78 per cent in ex- ports to Japan, up to million. Imports from Japan rose 10 per cent to million. Exports to the United King- dom rose six per cent to million; and exports to the Common Market countries, except the U.K., were down one per cent to million. Imports from the U.K. were off four per cent to million and to the other Common Market countries down five per cent to million. Gov't sets goal for trade centre MONTREAL (CP) Despite lack of a developer, finances and tenants, the Quebec government expects Montreal will have a proposed multi-milliondollar World Trade Centre within two years. So far, only the Quebec gov- ernment has given a firm commitment to rent offices in the proposed 26-storey struc- ture that will cost million- million, said Philip O'Brien, president of Deven- core Realties Ltd., the centre's rental agent. But Mr. O'Brien said he was optimistic there would be no problems soliciting tenants because several major finan- cial and transportation com- panies have shown interest. Mr. O'Brien said a bank executive told him: "If one bank goes, all the banks have got to go and we can't afford not to." About 100 tenants, apart from the provincial government, would be needed to fill the tower, to be located south of the downtown core near the Montreal Stock Ex- change and Place Bonaven- ture, a hotel, shopping and convention centre. Mr. O'Brien said he ex- pected the federal govern- ment would be anxious to move some agencies into the structure because of its an- ticipated role in international commerce. Mr. O'Brien said million was needed in equity financ- ing and "we are close to getting it." He was confident costs would not soar unmanageably, as has occurred recently with most major Quebec province construction projects which failed to peg their costs to inflation. "We have been very careful about Mr. O'Brien said. He said he hoped construc- tion could start before the end of the year. Guy Saint-Pierre, Quebec industry and commerce minister, has said: "I am firmly convinced that the World Trade Centre will exist within two years." Mr. Saint-Pierre overflowed with superlatives when dis- cussing the proposed centre, which he said will be an im- portant meeting place in generating international trade. He was especially hopeful the centre would stimulate sales of goods manufactured in Quebec. The Quebec government plans to take about 25 per cent of the square feet of rentable floor space and will pay million for manage- ment of the area, which will contain all the province's international trade services, Mr. Saint-Pierre said. Business, gov'ts hike spending for projects OTTAWA (CP) Businesses and governments expect to spend 14 per cent more this year on building, machinery and equipment purchases than they did last year, Statistics Canada said Friday in reporting on a sur- vey of investment intentions. Merchants and house builders were the most pessimistic about plans for 1975 and governments, manufacturers and utility ALBERTA HOG PRODUCERS MARKETING BOARD REQUIRES A livestock yard supervisor and general yard help for the Board's Lethbridge Hog Terminal.

Here are the forecasts of capital spending and percen- tage increases for the major areas of economic activity. Agriculture and fishing, billion, up 18 per cent; For- estry, million, up 12 per cent; Mining, quarrying and oil wells, billion, up 14 per cent; Construction ladwtry, excluding honilnf, ftIO million, up II per cent.
