External Debt and Fiscal Sustainability
February 04, 2002 -- Poverty Reduction, Growth and Debt Sustainability in Low-Income CIS Countries
Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, the Kyrgyz Republic, Moldova, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan are the poorest countries in the CIS, and their transition to market-based economies over the past decade has been extremely difficult. In many cases, the economic disruptions created by the break-up of the former Soviet Union were compounded by diverse shocks, including armed conflicts and massive changes in the terms of trade. For the group as a whole, real GDP fell by an average of almost 50 percent between 1990 and 1995, and poverty and inequality increased substantially. Since then, growth has resumed, but both financial and physical (life expectancy and nutritional status) indicators of living standards remain depressed or may have deteriorated in some countries. In several cases, a large volume of external debt has also been accumulated, undermining prospects for growth and poverty reduction.
