Nature of the Problem

While the emphasis in this paper is on practical measures to help the developing countries to overcome problems which may arise from unfavourable terms of trade or fluctuations of their export prices or earnings, it is necessary to consider briefly the nature of the problem and the prospects for the coming years.

Problems arising from fluctuations of prices of export earnings are considered at the end of this section.
