Overeenkomst inzake technische samenwerking tussen het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden en de Republiek Indonesië
The Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and
the Republic of Indonesia,
Desirous of strengthening the ties between their nations and of promoting the good relations between their countries generally,
Recognizing that it is in the interest of both Parties to promote scientific, economic and social progress in their countries to the best of their ability and that an arrangement for technical co-operation would substantially contribute to that aim,
Considering that it would be useful to create a general framework within which such technical co-operation could be realized,
The two Governments shall promote technical co-operation between their countries as far as their financial and material possibilities and the personnel at their disposal permit.
Technical co-operation shall comprise the exchange, in the widest sense of the term, of knowledge and experience between the two countries, which may or may not be accompanied by material aid.
Effective co-operation as referred to in the preceding paragraph shall not be initiated before the country wishing to avail itself of the opportunities for co-operation offered by the other country has made an explicit request to that effect, nor before agreement has been reached on the facilities requisite for such co-operation.
When technical co-operation as referred to in paragraph 1 of Article 2 has been decided upon and, in consequence, experts are made available, fellowships are granted or technical co-operation on a broader scale is initiated, the methods to be employed and the conditions to be observed shall, in each individual case, be decided in joint consultation by administrative arrangements, in accordance with the principles embodied in the present Agreement.
To experts made available by the Government of one country to the other country shall be accorded the same privileges as are applicable to experts on missions for the United Nations.
With regard to the importation and exportation of equipment, demonstration material and other goods required by the experts for the performance of their task or forming part of material made available in cases of technical co-operation on a broader scale, the same regulations as are applicable to United Nations equipment and supplies shall be applied.
As regards contingencies for which this Agreement does not provide, the two Governments shall, in each individual case, decide by administrative arrangement.
The Agreement shall enter into force on the day on which the Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the Government of the Republic of Indonesia have informed each other in writing that the procedures constitutionally required in their respective countries have been complied with.
The present Agreement shall be valid for a term of five years. Unless either of the Contracting Parties gives notice in writing not less than six months before expiry of the current period, it shall be deemed to have been tacitly extended for further terms of three years.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF the undersigned, duly authorised thereto, have signed the present Agreement.
DONE at The Hague, this third day of April 1964, in the English language, in two originals.
