Description: Sound (English), b&w, 17 min. Emphasizes the advantages of calling on the “expert services” of industries and countries that have developed special skills, and that these experts should make this specialized knowledge and experience available wherever there are problems to be solved. Expertise in one country can help solve problems in other countries, such as that of the Dutch, well-known hydraulic engineers, in bringing flood waters under control in Britain in 1947. A brick factory in Denmark increases its production considerably by creating a “works council” consisting of labor and management that consults experts and studied similar operations in other countries. Trade journals and trade associations can be of enormous help; a printing firm in Britain taps the expertise of the printer’s federation, particularly in connection with cost accounting. The Dutch Building Center (the “Bouwcentrum”) in Rotterdam now has an international reputation as a valuable source of new building techniques and information. French and Dutch hydraulic engineers help Zonguldak, Turkey, an important source of coal, design and build a new harbor and other countries help modernize the mines themselves. The Danish Technological Institute helps the local leather industry provide a needed new source of tannic acid. The initiative must always come from the industry itself, but cooperation is the key so that resources can be taken advantage of to the fullest possible extent. 1953.
