     The Baltic  Assembly recommends  that the  Baltic Council of               
Ministers work  out the  principles for  joint cooperation in the               
procurement   of medical instruments and ambulances necessary for               
the Baltic  countries which  would thereby increase the volume of               
orders and make supplies cheaper.
