The Agrarian Economies of Central and Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States. Situation and Perspectives, 1997


  • Csaki, S.
  • Nash, J.


This report seeks to provide a brief overview of agricultural economies in the region. It identifies where the agrarian economies of Eastern Europe and Central Asia stand today, the direction in which they are heading, the rate at which production can be expected to recover, and how this influences the region's behavior on international agricultural markets. Although we recognize the importance of the social and natural resource management aspects of the agricultural transition, these issues are not addressed in this report.
