List of Recommendations

Recommendation 1

The Committee supports the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) General Capital Increase and Selective Capital Increase and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) General Capital Increase and recommends that binding treaty action be taken.

The Committee supports the Exchange of letters terminating the Agreement between the Government of Australia and the Government of the Republic of Indonesia concerning the Promotion and Protection of Investments and recommends that binding treaty action be taken.
