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 format of this year’s annual Economic Survey of Asia and the Far East has been altered to emphasize regional appraisal rather than review of development in individual member countries in accordance with the twenty-seventh session Commission resolution No. 118 (XXVII). The secretariat is aiming at a biennial regional appraisal cycle in the contents of the annual Survey, so that it presents a full-scale background to global appraisal each second year, while, each other year, it limits the regional survey to a briefer description of regional developments, combined with a discussion of specific economic regional problems relevant to appraisal. Each year, the regional surveys will also include brief surveys of development in most of the region’s individual countries.
