The external financing environment facing developing countries has brightened. In 2003, as global growth gained momentum, private capital flows to developing countries increased to $200 billion their highest level in five years. Harnessing these gains to promote long-term investment and growth is the key theme of Global Development Finance 2004.

With analysis and data spanning from short-term trade to long-term infrastructure finance, Global Development Finance 2004 is unique in its breath of coverage of the issues related to international development finance. By providing a comprehensive review of recent trends in and prospects for all development-related flows (including debt, equity, official aid, and workers remittances), Global Development Finance 2004 enables government officials, economists, investors, financial consultants, academics and policymakers in the development community to better understand, manage, and promote the key challenge of financing development in todays globalized environment.

Global Development Finance 2004, I: Analysis and Summary Tables reviews recent trends in and prospects for financial flows to developing countries. It highlights sources of vulnerability and risk in the recovery in private flows, notably the likely increases in interest rates in the advanced economies, volatility in major currencies and financial markets stemming from large global current-account imbalances, and fears of policy slippages in macroeconomic management in developing countries. It also contains the World Banks assessment of the global outlook in light of the recent economic recovery.
