A valuable resource for those involved in international business and economic development, the Trade and Development Report (TDR) 1999, issued by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), examines current performance and prospects in the world economy. It offers further reflections on the Asian financial crisis and discusses the euro and the international financial system. The report also examines asymmetries in the international trading and financial systems, which continue to hamper growth prospects in developing countries.




Over many years, UNCTAD’s Trade and Development Report has provided a clear and consistent analysis of trends in the international economy, with particular reference to developing countries and the policy challenges which they face. The 1999 Report is no exception. It offers further reflections on the Asian financial crisis, taking into account the effects of contagion on Latin America and Eastern Europe over the past year, as well as the launch of the new international currency in Europe. With a new round of multilateral trade negotiations on the horizon, it also takes a fresh look at pressing issues on the trade agenda.
