This latest edition of the Survey analyzes current economic and social developments in the region against the background of events in the world economy. It also focuses on the serios problems of growth and transformation of the area's least developed and Pacific Island developing economies.




The prime concern of the developing ECAFE countries is to raise the per capita incomes and living standards of their peoples. The successful pursuit of this aim involves planning for the efficient and co-ordinated development of the three major sectors of the economy, primary, secondary and tertiary, and this must be carried out within the limitations of a socio-economic environment shaped by habit and custom and by resource endowments, both human and material. During the United Nations Development Decade of the sixties, great changes will undoubtedly take place in the economies of the developing ECAFE countries as they move towards the realization of this common goal.
