    Preface

    The Staff Studies for the World Economic Outlook were prepared in the Fund’s Research Department. They have benefited from comments by staff colleagues throughout the Fund as well as by the Fund’s Executive Directors. The views expressed remain the responsibility of the individual authors.

    It should be noted that the term “country” used in this report does not in all cases refer to a territorial entity that is a state as understood by international law and practice. The terms also covers some territorial entities that are not states but for which statistical data are maintained and provided internationally on a separate and independent basis.
