About the book

As the twentieth century drew to a close, it became clear that the least developed countries (LDCs) had generally failed to derive appropriate benefits from the ongoing processes of liberalization and globalization. This report examines the recent economic developments and outlook in the LDCs; reviews development finance, external debt and investment; assesses the programme of action for the LDCs for the 1990s; and discusses marginalization, productive capacities and the LDCs. Satistical charts and graphs are also included.
