Development policy and international economic cooperation

International political and economic developments during 1991 resulted in the slowest rate of global economic growth since 1982; they included the hostilities in the Persian Gulf region, the unification of Germany, and the restructuring under way in Central and Eastern Europe. Zero growth overall was forecast, with large-scale declines in the output of Eastern Europe and recession in the developed market economies. Developing economies continued to experience problems that had persisted over most of the preceding decade.
