Dear Dr. L rberg :
It is a pleasure for me to invite you to
participate
in a conference on a subject of key importance
to the West. The conference,
entitled
"high technology,
economic growth and Alliance
Security:
An Agenda for the
Future, I1 will be held in Brussels February 6-8, 1986.
We at the U.S.`Mission
to the North Atlantic
Treaty
Organization
will co-sponsor the meeting with the chiefs
of three other U.S. missions -- Ambassador Geoffrey Swaebe
of the U.S. Embassy to Belgium, Ambassador Edward Streator
of the U.S. Mission to the Organization
for Economic
Cooperation
and Development,
and Ambassador J. William
Middendorf
II of the U.S. Mission to the European
Communities.
They join me in extending this invitation
to
you.
Our keynote speaker will be The Honorable
John Whitehead, Deputy Secretary of State of the United
States and formerly a senior partner and co-chairman
of
Goldman Sachs and Co.
As you well know, technological
advance is
indispensable
for the economic progress and for the
security of the West. But issues associated with high
technology
have also been a source of disagreement
within
the Alliance.

We need to understand better the problems of high
technology,
how it can be introduced
and managed effectively
in
order to maximize its benefits,
and how to prevent differences
from becoming unduly divisive.
Most importantly,
we need a
shared vision of the future and a common action agenda that can
be pursued vigorously
by all allies to our mutual benefit.
For this reason, it is our purpose with this conference
to bring together government leaders, parliamentarians,
businessmen,
labor leaders, scientists,
and academicians
from
Europe, the United States and Japan to consider the approaches
to developing
and managing technology
that would produce
maximum benefit for us all.
A number of leading European and
U.S. think tanks will also be participating.
The site of the conference will be the Palais d'Egmont,
through the kindness of the Belgian Ministry
of Foreign
Affairs.
Accommodations
for conference participants
from
outside Brussels will be provided at the Hilton Hotel.
The
conference will begin the afternoon of February 6 and will
close the afternoon of February 8.
I would appreciate
very much your kindness in returning
the enclosed reply card as soon as possible.
Should you have
questions concerning the conference,
Ms. Helen McKee or
Mr. Michael Moodie of my staff would be pleased to answer
them. The number in Brussels is (32) (2) 242-5280, and their
extension is 3236.
We very much hope you wi
able to join us.
