(UP)— The China tea Industry lias been the subject of considerable discussion In government circle* and (he Executive Yuan now has approved certain recommendations for the control of Hie industry which has been affected more thnn any oilier by the Soviet barter agreement. ' The Executive Yuan's recommendations fall under two headings, the first of which deals with "certain difficulties" that have arisen through the fulfillment 01 ' the barter system's requirements —the difficulty of satisfying the recognized lea exporters' requirements and those of tlie Soviet government. Under the agreement with Ihe Soviet, China .undertook to supply various commodities In return for which It would receive military supplies. The agreement was reached hi 1938, prior to the oul- bresk of hostilities In Europe. .The Chinese government, while being oMIgaled to the Soviet gov- errim'cnt to fulfill the terms of Ihe .agreement, at the same time realized the necessity of retaining normal foreign markets which usually are supplied by British firms and to a lesser extent by French concerns. Central Agency Urged With this object In view (he recommendations approved provide lhat the administration of the tea Industry in the future will be in the hands of one central agency. Since the China National Tea Corporation has been the distributing company for china, it is recommended that this corporation ho given exclusive control of the 19*) tea protiuclion in its entirely — purchase, manufacture, transportation and all other sales and barter arrangements. To effect this the corporation has been reorganized and will be controlled by the Central government. Apart [rest the capital Invested by ministries of economic affairs and finance, any other capital invested- by various provincial governments' and merchant firms will be, refunded and replaced by Ihe Centra! government. The capital will, moreover, be increased from S5,000,030 to 510,000,000 and the corporation wilt be placed under the direction of the foreign trade commission of the ministry of finance. ' Shortage in fiong Hong Under the second recommendation the Central sovcnunpnc neeks to minimize the difficulty cf r-itts- fying both foreign exporters and i the -reeds of th» "oviei government-under the barter agreement.] It has been announced that the main difficulty in (he past has been due to lack of stocks in Hong Kong and that no question of administration has been Involved Orders have bee» issued that the China National Tea Corporation shall deliver to the Central Trust of China 280,000 packages of tea and that the balance of stock- held by Ihe corporate shall be handed over lo the foreign trade commission. The manager of the Fua llua Company, which previously handled tha bulk of tea exporte from Hong Kong, will be transferred and his place will be taken bv Ihe manager of the China National Tea Corporation. The tea stocks in the hands of the Central Trust will be disposed of by tho foreign Irade commission which flrsl of all, will satisfy the terms of the Soviet barter agreement and niter- ward sell the surplus ou the public market. Tea held by the Central Trait wiU be sow lo countries other than Russia. Also it has been ordered lha< all demands for lea from the Soviet government will be deal! win, by Ihe foreign Irade comml^lon of Ihe centra"! government.
