In May 1967 a meeting was organized by the Scientific and Technological Committee of the North Atlantic Assembly and the Foreign Policy Research Institute. It was called "Conference on Transatlantic Imbalance and Collabora-tion" and it was held at Queen Elizabeth's palatial property in Deauville, France.
The basic purpose and intent of the conference at Deauville was to end U.S. technological and industrial progress.
