At the conference, Germany, the Allied Nations, and the Repa- rations Commission agreed to adopt the Dawes Plan of April 1924. The plan aimed to enable Ger- many to make its reparation payments and simultaneously restore its devastated economy. New measures were established to regulate Germany’s foreign currency payments to the Allies (see Vossi- sche Zeitung, 16 July 1924, EE, and 16 August 1924, EE and Schulze 1998, p. 274).
