The initial conditions of growth and structural transformation

The influences that bear upon structural transformation as an integral element in the economic development process have long been emphasized, even if only implicitly, in the choice of topics for special study in part two of the annual ESCAP Survey. In recent years these have included fiscal policy, international commodity trade, trade policies, financing development and human resources development. Against the background of the profound structural changes that have occurred over the past two decades in many developing economies of the ESCAP region, the Commission chose “Restructuring the developing economies of Asia and the Pacific in the 1990s” as the theme topic of its forty-fifth session.
