Published since 1948, this report examines various aspects of the previous year’s macroeconomic situation in the region and makes projections for the coming months. The study also includes country notes that review the performance of the main economic indicators in the period analysed.



The objectives of the strategy and the means of attaining them

It is impossible to envisage a standard development strategy and policy for the Latin American countries. This cannot be done even for each of the traditional groups (large, medium-sized and small) into which the countries are generally divided for purposes of analysis, because there are considerable differences between the countries which they comprise. Nevertheless, just as structural development problems and obstacles have been identified as prevailing, in differing degrees, in the region, it is also possible to define essential features of development strategy which are fairly broadly applicable, although their practical implementation would depend on the particular conditions in each country and on the decisions of their Governments.
