This progress report has been written at a stage of the negotiations when it is not possible to draw any meaningful forecast of what are likely to be the outcome of the negotiations. However, it would seem that the Successor Arrangement will not be a totally new convention. Rather, it is likely to be a mere improvement of the provisions of Lome II Convention. One thing that is nevertheless obvious is that the new negotiating platform has become more complex in view of certain recent developments in international trade, money and financial relations. The EEC as part of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) are most likely to assume the same stand on many of the issues under negotiations as they have done within UNCTAD, GATT and the IMF/IBRD.
