It appears from the study that quite severe requirements as to fuel mileage, safety, noise, and exhaust emissions can be met at a reasonable cost to the consumer, provided these requirements are internationally applicable - so as to permit large-scale production - and accord with the realities of industrial procedure. It may be noted that the matters taken up are not confined to problems of the environment, the country's automotive industry, or the market for motor vehicles in Sweden. There is in fact little that can be accomplished by unilateral action on Sweden's part. Active participation in the research and development projects that are being carried on internationally is therefore essential - as is also the need to seek fresh modes for such cooperation. It is felt, too, that Sweden should on occasion take the initiative in order to promote the international harmonization of standards and requirements.
