Common Market and US conducting trade talks

By

The European Economic Community (EC) and the United States, their relations improved by President Reagan's decision to lift price controls on domestically produced oil, begin two days of trade talks in Washington today (Feb. 9). The EC has long complained that the controls, lifted last month, gave US textile producers an unfair advantage by ensuring them oil and gas supplies at prices below world levels. Sir Roy Denman, EC director general for external affairs, who will lead the Community delegation, will press for the removal of price controls on natural gas as well, EC sources said.
