OFFICIAL PAPER- Economic Growth in Asia-Balance-Sheet of a Decade

Economic Survey of Asia and the Far East, Part II (Current Economic Development), Economic Commission for Asia and Far East, WHILE not particularly famous for their originality or freshness of thinking on development problems, ECAFE's annual economic surveys have become a useful source of information on regional economic developments. This year's survey, the twenty-fourth in the series, covers the usual ground and deals with growth in national income, agriculture, manufacturing, balance of payments, and international liquidity in the region as a whole as well as in the individual member countries. It also contains the usual country notes which deal at somewhat greater length with government policy and developments in key areas. Twenty-one Asian countries are covered, and data are provided in the form of convenient tables which in many cases go back five or six years.
