Extract of Instructions from the Foreign Affairs Office of the State Council to the Foreign Cultural Liaison Committee

Report No. [19]64 1831

8 December 1964

Contents: Regarding the Issue of Sending Experts in Woodcarving and Ivory to Mali

Written Opinion

On 11 December [1964], Comrade Li Yimang said:

"[I] agree. Candidates selection should [treat both] political [appropriateness] and technical skill [as being] important. After going to Mali, oversight and leadership should be strictly under the [authority of the] Embassy [of the People's Republic of China in the Republic of Mali's] Cultural Office.”
