This collection from the Treasury Department records at the National Archives presents the Geographic Files from the Office of the Assistant Secretary for International Affairs (OASIA). These Geographic Files focus on the Far East represented by Afghanistan, Burma, Ceylon, Formosa, French Indochina, India, Indonesia, Korea, Japan, Malaya, Nepal, Pakistan, the Ryukyu Islands, Thailand, and Tibet. The files date from 1944 to 1959, with some material from the 1930s. The collection consists of memoranda, correspondence, articles, administrative records, informal notes, transcripts of meetings, and special reports. This microfilm publication highlights essential documentation on Far East economic and financial relations, funding and budget policies, aid and technical programs, and economic missions. The collection begins with a special report, _Problems of Economic Development in the Far East_ by Harlan Cleveland, analyzing issues on trade, economic assistance, prices, and the UN. The rest of the documents in the collection are organized alphabetically by country, except Korea, which precedes Japan. Materials in the country files address a wide range of topics including banks and banking, currency stabilization, foreign exchange rates, external assets, securities and investments, trade agreements, military pay, reparations, and war surplus.
