Small States in the Global Economy

image of Small States in the Global Economy

The book contains fiftyfour tables covering selected economic, social, demographic and Millennium Development Goal indicators culled from international and national sources and presents information unavailable elsewhere. A detailed parallel commentary on trends in Commonwealth small states, looking at growth, employment, inflation, human development, and economic policy, permits a deeper understanding of developments behind the figures.




The papers included in this book were presented to the Commonwealth Secretariat/World Bank Joint Task Force on Small States as background papers to facilitate its work. They were discussed at two high-level conferences organised by the Task Force in St. Lucia in February 1999 and London in February 2000. I believe that their publication will help inform continuing analysis and debate on small states issues in the countries themselves, and in multilateral and other institutions that provide support and influence their development.
