    Prefatory Note

    The Hungarian People’s Republic became a member of the International Monetary Fund on May 6, 1982. In connection with the membership application, the Fund staff prepared for internal use a brief report on the economic system and on recent economic developments in Hungary. That report has been adapted in a form suitable for publication as an Occasional Paper. It does not reflect developments after the end of 1981.

    Helpful comments were received from staff members and from the Hungarian authorities, who also provided much of the statistical basis for this study. The opinions expressed, however, are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the views of other staff members, Executive Directors, or the Hungarian authorities.
