World Bank, International Development Association annual report 1968 (English)

The economic prospects of a number of developing countries have improved in some important respects during the past year, notably in regard to agriculture. This report discusses that the steps taken in recent years to raise agricultural output have produced significant results in several countries. The higher yields of food grains achieved in the populous region of Asia by the use of better seed varieties in conjunction with fertilizer and other necessary inputs, and assisted by good weather, have been particularly encouraging. To provide the necessary ground work for a reassessment of development efforts by both donors and recipients of development assistance the President of the World Bank Group recommended in November 1967 that a grand assize may be undertaken to assess the results of the last 20 years of development activity, to identify the accomplishments and errors and to suggest policies which might be more effective in future. The World Bank and International Development Association (IDA) extend finance to member countries for productive projects which the Bank's studies have indicated are viable and will make an important contribution to the borrowing countries' economic development.
