Recent trends and outlook for the LDCs

This chapter is intended to serve three distinct but interrelated purposes. The first is to describe and analyse the recent economic trends in the least developed countries (LDCs) and the economic outlook in the medium term. Recent trends in economic growth, international trade and external finance are assessed. In addition, this section gauges the possibilities of meeting the target of the Istanbul Programme of Action for the Least Developed Countries for the Decade 2011–2020 (IPoA) to enable half of the LDCs to meet the criteria for graduation from that category by 2020. The analysis suggests that prospects for achieving that goal are not particularly good.
