The summary below has been prepared by the ADB delegation to UHCTAD III in Santiago, Chile. Various documents have already been published on the outcome of the conference, especially a collection of resolutions as well as appraisals made by various relevant organizations. But the reader will soon realize, after reading the first few pages of this document, that it is not merely a summary record, much less a collection of the papers published. In the present report, even draft resolutions which were not adopted in plenary session are dealt with to show not only the scope of claims by developing countries, but also to prepare the reader for a better understanding of future international negotiations. With regard to each resolution, descriptions are given of the highly complex negotiations that took place and of the; motives behind the attitudes which, in the final analysis, will determine future relations between developed and developing countries. It is the hope of the ADB- that this document will not merely serve as a vivid summary record but also as an aide-memoire likely to be useful to all those who would like to understand not only the economic aspects but also the political aspects of international economic negotiations within UNCTAD.
