Explanatory notes

The classification of countries in this Report generally follows that of the UNCTAD Handbook of International Trade and Development Statistics 1994. It has been adopted solely for the purposes of statistical or analytical convenience and does not necessarily imply any judgement concerning the stage of development of a particular country or area. As noted in the Foreword to the Handbook, the classification differs from that used previously, in particular as regards regional and total aggregates for developing countries.
