The International Cetngress of Christian Trades' Unions in the Textile Industry, which met in Paris on Friday and Saturday last included representatives from France, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, and Czechoslovakia.

The Congress considered the position of the textile industry in the various countries represented and recommended measures to improve the situations.
