UNCTAD's Least Developed Countries Report provides a comprehensive and authoritative source of socio-economic analysis and data on the worldþs most impoverished countries. Each Report contains a statistical annex, which provides basic data on the LDCs. The least developed countries (LDCs) are a group of 50 countries which have been identified as 'least developed' in terms of their low GDP per capita, their weak human assets and their high degree of economic vulnerability. The first part of this report reviews recent economic trends in the LDCs and progress towards the development targets agreed at the Third United Nations Conference on the LDCs (UNLDC III), held in Brussels in 2001. The second part of the Report focuses on the issue of developing productive capacities in the LDCs. Productive capacities are defined as the productive resources, entrepreneurial capabilities and production linkages which together determine the capacity of a country to produce goods and services and enable it to grow and develop. For tradable goods and services, it is the capacity to produce in an internationally competitive manner that matters. Productive capacities develop within a country through three closely interrelated processes: capital accumulation, technological progress and structural change. The report examines the working of these processes within the LDCs, and discusses three basic constraints on them: the infrastructure divide; weak institutions, notably firms, domestic financial systems and domestic knowledge systems; and lack of demand. It suggests how these constraints may be addressed. The report shows that in almost all the LDCs there is an imbalance between the rate of growth of the labour force, which is very rapid owing to population growth, and the rate of capital accumulation and technological progress, which is generally slow. As a result, most workers have to earn their living using their raw labour, with rudimentary tools and equipment, little education and training, and poor infrastructure. Labour productivity is low and there is widespread underemployment. This is the basic cause of persistent mass poverty in the LDCs. The development of productive capacities in a way in which productive employment opportunities expand - in non-agricultural activities as well as within agriculture - is the key to achieving substantial and sustained poverty reduction in the LDCs. The report calls for the development of productive capacities to be placed at the heart of national and international policies to promote economic growth and poverty reduction in the LDCs
