Chief Vito Genovese had returned to New York after his exile in Italy and was not content to play a subordinate role in the organization. In March 1948, negotiations on the ITU Charter in Havana were successfully concluded. The Havana Charter (formerly the “Final Act of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Employment”) provided for the establishment of ITU and established the basic rules for international trade and other international economic matters. It was signed by 56 countries on March 24, 1948. It has enabled international cooperation and rules against anti-competitive business practices. The Bretton Woods Conference of 1944, which established an international monetary policy institution, recognized the need for a comparable international trade institution to complement the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.  Bretton Woods was visited by representatives of the Ministries of Finance and not representatives of the Ministries of Commerce, a reason given why no trade agreement was negotiated at the time.  The seminar will be held at the Havana Convention Center and no registration fee will be charged. The Convention Centre Bureau offers five-day packages (from 18 to 23 November) with preferential rates including room, breakfast and airport-hotel-airport transfers. Accommodation will be provided at the Palco Hotel, which is part of the congress center where the event will take place. Seven rounds of GATT negotiations took place before the eighth round – the Uruguay Round – was concluded in 1994 with the creation of the World Trade Organization (WTO) to replace GATT. The GATT principles and agreements were adopted by the WTO, which was responsible for managing and renewing them.
At the conference, Luciano reportedly applied to retain his position as paramount chief at La Cosa Nostra. Then Luciano`s ally, Albert “The Mad Hatter” Anastasia, seconded the motion. Anastasia agreed with Luciano because he felt threatened by Genovese`s attempts to interfere with his waterfront thugs. Endorsed by the Luciano-Costello-Anastasia alliance, Gennovese was forced to swallow his ambitions and plan for the future. To further embarrass Genovese, Luciano encourages Anastasia and Genovese to settle their differences and shake hands with the other bosses. This symbolic gesture was intended to prevent another bloody gang war like the Castellammarese War of 1930-1931. As Luciano consolidated his personal stance and suppressed Genovese`s ambition for the time being, Luciano raised the discussion about mob drug operations in the United States. After a discussion, the delegates voted for siegel`s execution. Delegates tasked Chicago Outfit Consigliere Charles “Trigger Happy” Fischetti with overseeing the contract. The real blow would be given to Jack Dragna, the head of the crime family in Los Angeles.
