New Occasional Papers

The following Occasional Papers have recently been published by the Fund:

Export Credit Cover Policies and Payments Difficulties

Occasional Paper No. 37

by Edward H. Brau and Chanpen Puckahtikom

This paper reviews developments in the policies and practices of ten major export credit agencies following the external debt-servicing difficulties experienced since 1982, focusing on the effects of the changed environment on the agencies’ practices. It examines a number of practical aspects, including the move toward a more comprehensive risk assessment, the agencies’ responses to debt reschedulings, their criteria for resumption of normal policy cover, and the implications of these practices for borrowing countries. Background analysis is provided on the experience of the agencies with a sample of eleven debtor countries during the period 1980 to mid-1984.

Trade Policy Issues and Development

Occasional Paper No. 38

by Shailendra J. Anjaria, Naheed Kirmani, and Arne B. Petersen

Drawing on information available in the Fund and obtained from meetings with trade and economics officials in a large number of countries, the authors of this study review recent developments in trade and outline some of the major issues in the field, in particular the drift toward increasing trade protection and the possibilities for liberalization. Part One is a synopsis of the issues and prospects for trade policy. Part Two further documents and analyzes industrial and agricultural trade policies in the major industrial countries and the evolving framework for international trade. Trade issues affecting developing countries and the role of the Fund in the trade area are discussed. The text is supplemented by extensive tables, documentary trade trends, and restrictions.

A Case of Successful Adjustment: Korea’s Experience During 1980—84

Occasional Paper No. 39

by Bijan B. Aghevli and Jorge Márquez-Ruarte

Korea’s experience following the second wave of oil price increases is an excellent example of how orthodox stabilization policies, effectively implemented, can help a country adjust to domestic and external shocks. The opening section of the study summarizes Korea’s rapid economic growth during 1965–78. It is followed by chapters on the crisis years (1979–80), adjustment (1981–82), and recovery (1983–84). Appendices describe the country’s public and financial sectors.

Recent Developments in External Debt Restructuring

Occasional Paper No. 40

by K. Burke Dillon, C. Maxwell Watson, G. Russell Kincaid, and Chanpen Puckahtikom

This paper reviews the arrangements for restructuring official and commercial bank debt up to early 1985. The main objective for restructuring is to provide for a return to normal debtor-creditor relations. Although the approach is adapted to each individual situation, almost all arrangements have close links with adjustment programs implemented by the debtor countries, and the Fund plays an important role in these arrangements. The paper examines the latest restructuring arrangements in the context of the magnitude and the sources of debtor countries’ current debt-servicing problems and discusses the issue of comparability of treatment among creditors.
