“The bilateral treaty approach
is attractive in several other im
portant respects. It can be tailor-
made to provide both incentives to
investors and the elimination of
those obstacles which make foreign
capital investment unattractive in
many countries. It can be selec
tive, Any country desiring to at
tract private funds from any one
or a number of certain countries
would not have to give the same
benefits to every other country.
Moreover, the capital-importing
country could retain control over
such problems as the corporate or
partnership form of investment
and also could specify fields in
v/hich funds are to be invested,
“In summary,” Mr, Firestone
concluded, “let me say that a com
bination of developments, largely
still in the making, in my opinion,
indicates the possibility of a more
substantial growth of opportuni
ties and stronger inducements in
the field of private investment
than in many years.
Whether or not these conditions
will have a constructive effect on
capital-deficient countries and the
broadening of world trade will de
pend upon the political, economic
and financial leadership of the
countries which would benefit
most. Let us help them realize the
opportunity that exists and adjust
their investment climate to capital
ize on it. If they do, we can look
forward to the broadening of in
ternational markets and more
prosperous economic conditions in
the free countries of the world.”
