|Description||One of the key ways the Overseas Committee kept track of operations in other countries was through a program of visits and associated reports.|
In November 1932 the Overseas companies were divided into lists and each of the four directors became responsible for one list of companies. The directors made long visits to each country every two years and wrote a report.These visit reports are usually on the longer end of the spectrum and will normally cover a wide range of topics.
In the mid-1950s, long overseas visits were replaced by more frequent, briefer trips, usually made by experts from the Co-ordinations, company representatives or the members of the Overseas Committee and Overseas Committee department. These visit reports are generally shorter than their predecessors and are often focussed on one topic.
Prior to these visits briefing reports were often prepared for the personnel making the visit.
