Although the events of the past year forced a retrenchment in these policies, it is clear that substantial progress had been made on several fronts, including higher prices to both exporters and importers, higher tariffs, and expanded aid. By 1964-65, these policies facilitated the removal of direct controls on about 40 per cent of CCIE imports and the reduction in the detailed control over another 35 per cent (placing licensing on a more automatic basis).
