Ministers expressed concern about the sharp slowdown in activity, especially the synchronized nature of the downturn among the three major economies; that is, those of the United States of America, Germany, and Japan. These negative developments will severely affect developing countries through lower external demand for our products, declining commodity prices, lower tourist receipts, and a sharp fall in access to foreign direct investment and capital markets, along with much higher spreads in the cost of financing.
