ABSTRACT
The European Free Trade Association (EFTA) has announced that the tariffs of five member states on imports of goods qualifying for EFTA treatment would be reduced on March 1, 1962. In Denmark, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland and Great Britain, basic duties were reduced by 40 percent since July 1, 1960. For imports into Austria and Norway, a corresponding reduction was to be made not later than September 1, 1962. While the reduction was not set to apply to certain limited classes of foods imported into Denmark, the tariff reductions were to be applied to imports from Finland in the same way as to imports from other member states. Moreover, EFTA and the European Economic Community had agreed that everything possible should be done to strengthen EFTA until final agreements with EEC had been reached.
