Prepared by the International Finance Team of the Development Prospects Group of the World Bank, this is the annual review of the external financial conditions facing developing countries. Stressing the need for broadening access to capital flows, it assesses the macroeconomic indicators and financial flows of the developing world. The first volume contains the analysis and selected summary data, while the second volume provides more detailed statistical information on 135 debt-reporting countries. The data tables present statistical information on aggregate net resource flows and net transfers, major economic aggregates, debt indicators, long-term debt, currency composition of long-term debt, debt restructurings, debt stock-flow reconciliation, average terms of new commitments, and contractual obligations on outstanding long-term debt.

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 today’s 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 Bank’s assessment of the global outlook in light of the recent economic recovery.

Global Development Finance 2004, II: Summary and Country Tables includes a comprehensive set of tables of data for 136 countries that report under the World Bank Debtor Reporting System, as well as summary data for regions and income groups. It contains data on total external debt stocks and flows, aggregates, and key debt ratios, and provides a detailed, country-by-country picture of debt. Global Development Finance 2004 debt data are also available on CD-ROM and online, with more than 200 historical time series from 1970 to 2002, and country group estimates for 2003.
