Economic Survey of Asia and the Far East 1967

Flagship11 Apr 1967

The present Survey is the twenty-first in a series of reports prepared annually by the secretariat of the Economic Commission for Asia and the Far East. A major object of these Surveys, and of the quarterly Economic Bulletins, is the analysis of recent economic developments in the countries of Asia and the Far East, and of international developments that affect them. Particular attention is paid to the analysis of economic policy and of policy issues.

It has been the established practice since 1957 to examine in the annual ECAFE Survey a specific problem relating to the economies of the region, in order to study long-term trends and their implications for national policies. The present Survey contains, in Part One, a study of export planning and policy; this is followed by Part Two in which the economic developments in the ECAFE region in recent years, particularly in 1966 and 1967, are reviewed on the basis of information available to the secretariat at the time of completing the Survey (March 1968).

The Survey is published on the sole responsibility of the secretariat and the views expressed in it should not be attributed to the Commission or Governments of member countries.
