image of Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Far East 1970

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.



Broad features of development in the ECAFE region in 1969/70 and their implications for 1971

It is customary to preface the individual country studies of the Survey with a general description of economic developments and of emerging policy issues within the region. However, because a detailed account of policy issues arising from the First United Nations Development Decade appears elsewhere in this Survey in “Problems and prospects of the ECAFE region in the Second Development Decade”, this section concentrates upon a description of recent economic developments and finally discusses only two or three policy issues which, although not peculiar to 1970 do emerge as important for 1971.
