International organizations concerned with information handling are working toward the adoption of compatible procedures and the eventual development of information networks capable of identifying and retrieving any published information from any country. Canada depends heavily on foreign information and technology, and uses various foreign information services extensively. Effective exploitation of networks providing relevant information when and where it is required will accelerate economic growth. Therefore, Canada should ensure the continued and improved availability of information by developing internal networks and by cooperating diligently with foreign and international networks, and create an intellectual climate that encourages the utilization of information. It is recommended that a national focus for scientific and technical information be established to: (1) ensure Canada's interests are considered in international negotiations affecting information exchanges, (2) coordinate and stimulate internal information networks that will contribute to and make use of international information services and (3) stimulate the export of indigenous communications and work toward adoption of internationally compatible operating procedures.
