Economic and social questions

The need for the developing countries to advance at an acceptable pace against the background of the debt crisis was discussed in several United Nations bodies throughout 1985. During discussions on the world economic situation and in major economic reports, it was stressed that, despite the significant expansion of world output and international trade, the legacy of the global recession of the early 1980s was still affecting a large number of developing countries and the middle years of the decade would continue to be characterized by high unemployment and inadequate progress against world poverty. Particular attention was given to the seriousness of the plight of the least developed countries and of sub-Saharan Africa.
