At a news conference Friday, he warned the Portuguese that their new freedom required discipline and responsibility, and appealed for cooperation "to meet the challenge of constructing a new country." He pointed out that it was faced with the contradictory need of oortjroltiac "the highest rate of inflation in Europe" -- some 39 per eeat -while expanding the economy. At the same time he sought to put an end to the fear of both native and foreign businessmen that the April revolution, which has brought leftists into political power, spelled the end of capitalism in Portugal. He said the private sector had a vital role to play and except for those industries involved in national defense, he denied any intention to assume state ownership. · · · AMONG THE major measures taken are the following: » Incentives for greater bank credit facilities for investment through an increase in iatefest rates for savmfc pwt4M* A*mrr«aM» taxes tew Tfsumtmgifs for hamta » More effective «*wt of prices of raw materials and food at production levels rather than at retail levels where controls are difficult to enforce. Stimuli to farm production to replace high-priced imports on which the country now heavily depends. » Incentives to low-cost housing construction to relieve the current housing shortage, depress the high level of rents and provide work for the unemployed. Public works projects will also be pushed. » An increase taxes on taxe- son higher incomes, on farm land not being exploited and on urban building sites now being kept idle for speculative · Aft increase « wafts for low-paid government, civil and Military ewptyes A minimum wage has also already been set f«r private industry and the minister indicated further wage increases would depend on increases in productivity. A decrease in working hours was ruled out. · Limitations on the right to strike, principally to eliminate wildcat walkouts and on employer lockouts and the establishment of procedures for collective bargaining. a v F« ran mt RMBMCS imr MI raw ** IE MI-ITW WCEMMTS T Stt...
