Economic Management and Planning

Case Studies of Selected Commonwealth Countries

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.
