ECONOMIC ANALYSIS


The Economic Survey of Europe

Since 1948 the Economic Survey of Europe provides regular, comprehensive analyses of economic developments and prospects in the entire ECE region. Following the radical changes in political regimes in the formerly Centrally Planned Economies of the ECE region, the Survey has since 1990 placed particular emphasis on developments in the countries in transition of eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union and the western response in terms of aid, trade and private investment.  Starting in 1998 issues of the Survey have incorporated the Economic Bulletin for Europe.

 

 Issue No. 1 of the 2000 Survey was submitted to the 55th Session of the Economic Commission for Europe, 3-5 May 2000, and was published shortly after the session (Sales No.: E.00.II.E.12).
