This study was prepared in the External Finance Division of the Exchange and Trade Relations Department of the International Monetary Fund by Peter M. Keller, Assistant Division Chief, with the assistance of Nissanke Weerasinghe, Economist. The author is particularly indebted to K. Burke Dillon for helpful suggestions and advice. Research assistance was provided by Hassanin Ismeail of the Exchange and Trade Relations Department. Staff in other departments also provided valuable suggestions. The study draws on material of earlier Fund studies by staff teams headed by Eduard Brau, Richard Williams, K. Burke Dillon, and C. Maxwell Watson. The author wishes to thank the editor, Juanita Roushdy of the External Relations Department.
