Under the agreement the Japanese Government
has agreed to pay to the United States the princi-
pal sum of $490,000,000 and interest at the rate oi
21/2 percent jaer annum on the unpaid balance.
This debt is to be paid semiannually in 30 install-
ments beginning 6 months from the date of entry
into force of this agreement. The first 24 install-
ments will consist of $21,959,125 and the last six
installments will consist of $8,701,690. Each in-
stallment shall be applied first to accrued interest
and the remainder to principal.

In the first exchange of notes the United States
expressed its intention, subject to appropriate
legislation, to employ the major portion of
GARIOA [Government and Relief in Occupied
Areas] repayments to further its programs for
economic assistance to less developed countries.
Tiie two Govermnents agreed to continue to con-
sult closely in pursuit of the objective of acceler-
ated and balanced economic development of the
countries in east Asia.

In a second exchange of notes the United States
stated that it will accept the equivalent of $25,000,-
000 of the total amount in Japanese yen to furtlier
educational and cultural excliange between the
United States and Japan. At the time of the
signing Ambassador Reischauer handed Foreign

entirely from the first two semiannual install-
ments under the agreement.

The United States regards this agreement as a
fair and honorable settlement of a long outstand-
ing issue in the close relationship between our two
countries. We believe that the anticipated use of
part of this settlement for cultural and educational
exchange between the United States and Japan
will strengthen the close ties of friendship of our
two peoples and will contribute to better under-
standing of our two cultures. We believe that our
continued close consultation regarding assistance
to less developed countries will aid further the at-
tainment of the joint Japanese-American objec-
tive of accelerated and balanced economic growth
of the countries of east Asia.

Tliis 33-page illustrated booklet is a basic primer on the subject of
foreign trade with particular emphasis on United States trade policy.

As stated by Secretary of State Dean Rusk, "What we do about
trade policy will be a test of our ability to meet the test of leadership
in the world of the 1960's. . . . What we do affects everybody. In
trade, as in so many other matters, leadership has been placed upon
us by our own capacities and accomplislmients. We can exercise it
wisely or badly, but exercise it we must."
