Development policy and international economic cooperation

The world economy accelerated in 1994, showing the strongest performance of the decade so far. However, economic performance remained uneven, with per capita output still not rising in most of Africa and production contracting in many countries in transition from centrally planned to market economies. It became apparent that the political and economic transformation of the eastern part of Europe, in its fifth year in 1994, would take longer and be more complicated than was previously imagined. Measures undertaken by the United Nations to assist the economies in transition were welcomed by the General Assembly, which called on the system to encourage greater participation of those countries in the world economy (resolution 49/106).
