German industry seeks support TORONTO (CP) presi- dent of an association repre- seating German industry tried yesterday to enlist the support of Canadian manufacturers in promoting freer international trade but it appeared that his plea met with a cool reception. Hans-Gunther Sohl, president of the Federation of German In- dustries, emphasized the sim- ilarities of the Canadian and German situations in his speech at the annual banquet of the Ca- nadian Manufacturers' Associ- ation. Mr. Sohl represents the German counterpart of the CMA. Earlier speakers at the CMA annual meeting pointed to the need for protection of Canadian! industry and urged tough bar- gaining in the forthcoming round of negotiations under terms of the General Agree- ment on Trade and Tariffs The two-day annual meeting of the CMA, whose mem- bers represent about three- fourths of Canada's manufac- t u r i n g capacity, concluded Tuesday. Mr. Sohl held out a promise of German support for reduc- tions on tariffs of agricultural products entering the European Economic Community (EEC) in negotiating a new set of cus- toms agreements among indus- trial nations. One of his main concerns, be said, was that the United States dollar be supported. CONFIDENCE NEEDED "The restoration of con- fidence in the dollar is in the interest of us all." A flight by international tra- ders away from use of the dol- lar may force the Americans into adopting protectionist pol- icies that might scuttle the GATT negotiations, he said. In an earlier speech at the annual meeting, Alastair Gil- lespie, federal minister of in- dustry, trade and commerce, said he anticipates the new round of GATT talks will begin in mid-1974. Mr. Gillespie told Military experts opinion Lull in Vietnam war hinted By KEVIN DOYLE SAIGON (CP) Military experts with the international peace supervisory force here are anticipating a generalized lull in fighting between the Viet Cong and South Vietnam- ese Army units which may last several months. But most seem convinced that scmstime in the next year, the Viet Cong will launch a major offensive aimed at securing at least one deep-water port and a major city." Sources conversant with in- ternational law tend to sup- port this view. They say the Viet Cong must have a port and a large city in order for their claim to sovereignty over parts of South Vietnam to have any credibility. Experts with the Interna- tional Commission of Control and Supervision who insist on anonymity, also indi- cate that a large-scale push by the Viet Cong is most liKely to be launched in the southern part of South Viet- nam, possibly in the Mekong Delta region. These sources believe North Vietnamese regular forces have established effective control over the three north- ern provinces of South Viet- nam, below the demilitarlized zone, and that the Viet Cong, as a result, have begun con- centrating their attention on areas farther south. Talk of a coming offensive, is heard everywhere in Sai- gon. In diplomatic and mili- tary circles, it is one of the main topics of conversation. But while virtually everyone seems convinced that an at- tack is being planned, there is little consensus so far on when it will take place. There is a growing belief, however, that the Viet Cong will postpone any major move at least until late summer when the rainy season, which is just starting, has ended. Other sources expect renewed hostilities nearer the end of the year. Military sources say the Viet Cong seem to be acutely aware that an offensive in the next couple of months might well bring on a resumption of American bombing, while an attack after six months or so may carry less risk of U.S. retaliation. The Viet Cong's Provisional Revolutionary Government (PRG) may also want a pe- riod of relative peace to deter- mine whether it will be possi- ble to hold genuinely free el- ections in South Vietnam in which its candidates would stand a chance of making significant gains. A major renewal of fighting would cause grave problems for the ICCS, whose main con- cern would be the evacuation of its field teams and even re- gional headquarters' staff to safe areas. Canadian officials, however, seem relatively certain that an evacuation could be ac- complished fairly quickly, al- though not without consider- able security risks. The problem would be an academic one, as far as Can- ada is concerned, within a few weeks. External Affairs Min- ister Sharp has announced Canada will withdraw from the truce observer team not la'.er than July 31. The ICCS now has a Canadi- an-organized a i r operation with 32 aircraft capable of reaching virtually all areas of South Vietnam. The main problem with air operations is that flights over Viet Cong territory can be made only after extensive advance warn- ing has been given and Clear- ance granted. But as one Canadian official commented: "If our people were in real danger we'd fly anywhere we had to in order to with or without permission." an appreciative CMA audience that the government intends to consult businessmeii before en- tering the negotiations and plans to appoint an advisory committee on tariffs. Mr. Sohl outlined industrial developments in Germany since the European Economic Com- munity (EEC) was established and said: "I would greatly de- plore it if these developments were inhibited by national mat- ters." He noted that both Canada and Germany are among the world's largest foreign traders on a proportional basis with their respective export markets taking more than 20 per cent of total merchandise trade. "In the field of national trade we are united by common lib- eral elements." MIX DIFFERENT He recognized that the mix of trade is sales involve considerably more resources and staple with the offer of German in- dustry support to change EEC protectionist policies concerning agricultural products. Mr. Sohl conceded that this is a difficult political problem since about 10 per cent of the EEC work force is employed in agriculture com- pared with four per cent in the U.S. and five pen cent in Can- ada. The CMA position was sum- marized in a speech earlier at the annual meeting by Daniel Sprarae of Winnipeg, outgoing president. He advised the manufacturers to prepare for a tough bargain- ing round. "This means basing our nego- tiating position, in the ap- proaching General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade talks, on the overriding need to sustain and develop our existing manu- facturing industries. Any Mure concessions to competitors so far as the Canadian market is concerned must reflect this fact and be justified by equivalent concessions of real substance in access to their home markets. "Given present conditions and the extensive dismantling and reduction of import duties over the past 20 years, the Canadian market is about as open as we can make it. It has never been more so and, in this respect, we have gone further than most of our competitors." Mcc weather for Ducks. When it comes to your favourite Andres Duck, pleasure knows no season.
