Economic Management and Planning

Case Studies of Selected Commonwealth Countries

image of Economic Management and Planning
The book presents 11 case studies on economic planning, economic policy reforms, monetary management and tourism development from several developing countries.

The choice of topics and countries has been made primarily for meeting the need of developing appropriate case material for a newly designed international programme on Economic Management and Planning. These cases have been successfully used in more than four international training programmes at IIM, Ahmedabad. They provide useful data and relevant information to generate meaningful debates and discussions among practising senior level government officials working in economic ministries.

The cases demonstrate the extent of similarities in magnitude, nature, causes and intensity of economic problems faced by developing Commonwealth countries. The emphasis in these cases has been more on the processes of planning and decision making than on pure technical aspects. The cases also highlight the issues of decentralisation, environment and ecological concerns.

This publication will be useful to both training organisations and to policy-makers and planners in the developing countries.




This book is the outcome of our fruitful association with a series of international programmes on Economic Management and Planning sponsored by the Commonwealth Secretariat, London and conducted at Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad during 1989-1993. The book contains 11 cases covering eight countries and focussing on a variety of issues in economic planning and policy. The choice of topics and countries has been governed primarily by the need for development of appropriate case material to meet the specific requirements of a newly designed international programme on Economic Management and Planning.
