Trading competitively : trade capacity building in Sub-Saharan Africa by Federico Bonaglia( )

20 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The trade analysis and firm surveys conducted in several African countries in this study highlight an apparent mismatch between government policies and exporters’ needs in the provision and use of trade support services. While acknowledging the weaknesses of firms in these countries, the study does present evidence confirming the existence of a wide array of policy options for increasing business competitiveness and reducing dependence on primary commodities. Successful upgrading and diversification, however, require not only a right set of macroeconomic and structural policies, but also a substantial change in the policy-making process. A major governance problem undermines the implementation of a successful "business plan" for export diversification in these countries: the lack of involvement of private sector and civil society in policy formulation

Policy coherence towards East Asia : development challenges for OECD countries by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The remarkable growth of several countries in the East Asian region through past decades excited and unsettled many observers who wondered about the factors governing growth and sustainability. While others have examined the impact of domestic policies and their interaction, this book looks at the impact of OECD-country policies on the region in a variety of areas: trade, investment, agriculture, finance and aid, as well as macroeconomic policies and regional co-operation. Further, and most importantly, the book examines the interaction of these OECD-country policies and their coherence with each other. This book is part of an attempt by the OECD to establish guidelines for defining and adopting coherent policies conducive to development outside the OECD area, thus contributing to the world-wide search for answers to questions of poverty reduction and growth with equity. It is also part of an attempt to provide policy makers in both developing and OECD countries with the tools to formulate policies in harmony with each other to foster the integration of poorer countries into the international economy.--Publisher summary
Fiscal decentralisation in emerging economies : governance issues by Luiz R. de Mello( Book )

21 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of experiences of fiscal decentralisation across a wide range of OECD-Member and non-member economies reveals lessons which are equally of relevance to both groups of countries. A major finding is that fiscal decentralisation is often confused in the latter group of countries with the removal of central-government control over subnational finances. This is a mistake; it may lead to fiscal irresponsibility on the part of local authorities, deteriorating fiscal positions at both levels, and high costs due to duplication of fiscal institutions. The book also finds that insufficient attention has been given to local revenue generation, as opposed to intergovernmental transfers. The issue of fiscal decentralisation in emerging economies is particularly important, because it arises, in part, from a desire to enhance democracy and local accountability. However, the devolution of responsibilities must take place in an atmosphere of transparency, where the local expertise exists to manage budgeting. Serious consideration must be given to revenue sourcing and effective expenditure control. Finally, local spending must match available revenues without becoming an additional strain on central government resources
Miracle, crisis and beyond : a synthesis of policy coherence towards East Asia by Kiichiro Fukasaku( )

13 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What factors govern growth and sustainability? The remarkable recent development of several East Asian countries had brought this question to the fore. While other books have examined the impact of domestic policies and their interaction, this volume looks at the impact of OECD country policies on the region in a variety of areas: trade, investment, environment, agriculture, finance and aid, as well as macroeconomic policies and regional co-operation. Further, and most importantly, the book examines the coherence lessons of these OECD-country policies in the light of future challenges in East Asia and other developing regions

Business for development : fostering the private sector by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The days when it was thought that the development process could and should be managed by governments alone are long past. The challenge today is how to involve other parts of society such as the private sector and NGOs. This book details the activities of the private sector in developing and emerging economies and demonstrates how these activities are inter-related with government policies. Understanding these activities and public-private interactions is indispensable for the private sector to play its full role in a nation's development process. To this end, several case studies provide concrete examples from Africa, Asia and elsewhere

Compétitivité des échanges : renforcer les capacités en Afrique subsaharienne by Federico Bonaglia( )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in French and English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cette étude présente une série d'enquêtes menées auprès d'entreprises dans plusieurs pays africains ainsi qu'une analyse des échanges. Elle met en évidence une inadéquation manifeste entre les politiques menées par les pouvoirs publics et les besoins des exportateurs en ce qui concerne à la fois l'offre et l'utilisation des services de soutien aux activités commerciales. Tout en reconnaissant les faiblesses des entreprises locales, l'étude n'en livre pas moins des constatations qui confirment l'existence d'un vaste éventail de mesures capables d'améliorer la compétitivité des entreprises et de réduire la dépendance vis-à-vis des produits de base. Pour réussir sur ces deux fronts, cependant, il faut non seulement prendre des mesures macro-économiques et structurelles adéquates, mais aussi modifier substantiellement le processus de prise de décision. La mise en œuvre fructueuse d'un « plan d'action » visant à diversifier les exportations dans ces pays se heurte à un problème de gouvernance d'envergure, à savoir la faible participation du secteur privé et de la société civile à l'élaboration des politiques
La décentralisation budgétaire dans les économies émergentes : problèmes de gestion des affaires publiques by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )

15 editions published in 1999 in French and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce bilan des expériences d'un grand nombre de pays Membres et non membres de l'OCDE en matière de décentralisation budgétaire est riche d'enseignements pour les deux groupes de pays. Il en ressort que le groupe des pays non membres de l'OCDE semble souvent confondre décentralisation fiscale et suppression du contrôle par les autorités centrales des finances infranationales. C'est une erreur ; une telle équation peut conduire à des comportements budgétairement irresponsables de la part des autorités locales, à une détérioration des situations budgétaires aux deux niveaux, et à un surcroît de coût en raison de l'existence d'institutions faisant double-emploi. Autre conclusion, on n'a pas accordé suffisamment d'attention aux mesures à prendre pour augmenter les recettes des collectivités locales, par opposition aux transferts émanant d'autres niveaux d'administration.La question de la décentralisation budgétaire dans les économies émergentes revêt une importance particulière parce qu'elle découle en partie d'un désir d'améliorer la démocratie et la responsabilisation à l'échelle locale. Toutefois, la répartition des responsabilités doit s'effectuer dans une atmosphère de transparence, et une bonne rationalisation des choix budgétaires suppose des compétences techniques. Il faut accorder une grande attention à l'approvisionnement des revenus et au contrôle efficace des dépenses. Enfin, les dépenses locales doivent correspondre aux revenus disponibles sans faire pression sur les ressources de l'administration centrale
China's unfinished open-economy reforms : liberalisation of services by Kiichiro Fukasaku( )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the 1990s, China has experienced a surge in imports of services, particularly those of communication, insurance and other business services, despite the fact that the authorities have maintained a plethora of restrictive measures limiting access to the service sector. Not only does this cast strong doubt over the effectiveness of these measures currently in place but also raises some important political-economy questions regarding the market access issues related to this sector.Following a brief review of the country’s efforts made since 1994 to sustain its openeconomy reforms, the paper takes stock of major policy developments in the service sector and discusses the pros and cons of liberalisation of services.The paper argues that a further liberalisation of services would be imperative for China to develop a more viable and dynamic service sector and stands to gain the full benefits of globalisation. The protective measures imposed for short-term, political
Export Diversification in Low-Income Countries by Federico Bonaglia( )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper discusses major policy issues related to commodity dependence and export diversification in low-income countries. Contrary to some widely-held view, it argues that natural resources are not necessarily a "curse" — that they do not condemn low-income countries to underdevelopment but can provide rather a basis for sustained export-led growth. Natural resource-based sectors have potential for export diversification. The OECD "mirror" trade data suggest that many different routes to diversification exist, including resource-based manufacturing and processing of primary products. However, these opportunities are not being exploited in many low-income countries. This is because export diversification is typically a slow process, and this process needs to be sustained by an appropriate and coherent strategy, characterised by a combination of vision, co-ordination and management of conflicting interests. Moreover, the analysis of trade support services in two African countries
China as a leading Pacific economy by Kiichiro Fukasaku( )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

China is emerging as a leading Pacific economy in the 1990s. This paper examines the implications of China's entry into the world market for the OECD countries as well as for the regional economies of Asia and the Pacific. It argues that the shares of Asian countries in the OECD countries' market cannot increase without bound, as China and its neighbouring developing economies have basically similar export profiles, competing with each other for market shares for similar products.China's coastal strategy has led to the emergence of a "greater China", encompassing China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Growing trade and investment flows between China and Taiwan via Hong Kong since the mid-1980s can be understood as components of "catching-up" processes, described by some trade economists as the "flying-geese" pattern of trade development.In short, China's entry into the world market is a "positive sum" game, as it provides new market opportunities for both OECD countries and Asian NIEs.

Démocratie, décentralisation et déficits budgétaires en Amérique latine by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in French and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quels sont les effets de la décentralisation en Amérique latine ? Cet ouvrage examine les problèmes soulevés par la décentralisation politique dans la région et identifie les défis à relever. La décentralisation délègue en effet un certain degré de responsabilité financière aux gouvernements locaux et pourrait ainsi compromettre les objectifs fixés au niveau central en matière budgétaire et fiscale. Cette question se pose avec une acuité particulière à l'heure où il est nécessaire de conjuguer les progrès de la démocratisation avec la rigueur budgétaire requise par le marché international.Cet ouvrage rassemble les contributions présentées lors du huitième Forum annuel sur les perspectives latino-américaines, organisé conjointement par le Centre de Développement de l'OCDE et la Banque interaméricaine de développement. Les analyses des économistes sont confrontées à l'expérience pratique de décideurs de plusieurs pays d'Amérique latine, ce qui offre au lecteur un exposé stimulant des avantages et des risques de cette tendance à la décentralisation pour le développement économique. Ricardo Hausmann propose "dix commandements" particulièrement intéressants qui pourraient servir de règles à la gestion budgétaire dans les démocraties décentralisées. Ces propositions, et d'autres encore, alimentent de manière aussi vivante que pertinente le débat sur cet enjeu de premier plan
