In 1996 and 1997, the economies of Latin America and the Caribbean appeared to have returned to the pattern of moderate growth. Part I of this publication gives insight into the economic trends, the international economy and the role of exchange rate policy in the region. Part II explores the economic developments by country. Included also is a statistical annex on diskette, which contains tables extending as far back as 1980.



Structural reforms

After a period of relative inactivity in 1995, the region's structural reform process regained momentum in 1996. In addition, a start was made on what have come to known as "second generation" reforms, whose aim is to create a more efficient State that will be capable of complementing the role played by the market in the economic development process.
