E. BLOC VOWS SUPPORT

FOR SWEEPING REFORMSBONN, West Germany - Moscow and its reformist allies, in a move unthinkable only months ago, have accepted an international accord committing them to back private property, free enterprise and multiparty democracy, delegates to an East-West economic conference said Monday.

Although not legally binding, it represents a formal commitment by the reformist Communist countries to step further down the path of Western-style free markets and make their currencies convertible.

The pledges were contained in a draft final document agreed by 35 nations attending a Conference on Economic Cooperation in Europe.

HUNGARY'S ANTALL SEEKS

FULL EC MEMBERSHIP

BUDAPEST, Hungary, - The Hungarian Democratic Forum, the clear winner of Hungary's first national multi-party elections after four decades of communism, is aiming for a "social market economy" and membership in the European Community.

Forum President Jozsef Antall, virtually certain to become the country's next prime minister, said Monday he wanted Hungary to join the European Community as soon as possible and be part of a new security system of ''Atlantic integration."

IN GERMAN UNIFICATION

BONN, West Germany - Employment and real income in the whole of a future united Germany will be markedly higher over the medium term than if the country remained divided, West German ministers of finance and economics Theo Waigel and Helmut Haussmann said Monday.

In a joint statement on Monday's report from West Germany's five leading economics institutes, the two ministers welcomed the experts' stress on the need for low wage settlements to ensure the East German economy stays competitive.
