Background to the study

In the past three decades profound changes have taken place in the world economy as well as in many developing economies of the ESCAP region, which have reshaped both the global and regional development process. These changes have; been the focus of special attention in the ESCAP secretariat over the years. For example, in the past three years the theme topics that have been chosen for discussion by the Commission include: the patterns of economic growth, structural transformation and industrial restructuring, and their implications for regional economic cooperation among the developing economics of the ESCAP region in the past two decades. The process of growth and transformation among the region’s least developed and Pacific island countries was also the subject of study in part two of the Survey 1989.
