Executive Summary

In response to a request from Commonwealth Finance Ministers at their last meeting in Bermuda in September 1996, a Working Group of Senior Commonwealth Finance Ministry Officials met in London earlier this year to consider the role of national and international policies in encouraging private capital flows for investment. The Group's views reflect a wide variety of experience: from industrial countries, from emerging markets, from some of the world's most dynamic and competitive economies, and from some poor countries that have yet to benefit from developments in the global economy. But despite these differences, the Group found that they have a good deal of shared experience, and that they have had to face a number of common economic challenges.
