Coping with International Capital Flows

image of Coping with International Capital Flows

Private capital flows to developing countries have increased dramatically in the 1990s. The authors identify key concerns about the sustainability and volatility of these flows and make a number of recommendations for national macroeconomic management including improving crisis prevention measures.




The Commonwealth Secretariat has been giving a great deal of emphasis in its activities to assisting developing countries of the Commonwealth in attracting private flows. It has set up an intergovernmental working group, consisting of the representatives of 15 Commonwealth countries, to develop recommendations for national and international policies for attracting private flows for investment. The Group will be presenting its conclusions to the next meeting of Commonwealth Finance Ministers in September 1997.
