@Guyana:Economy

Economy - overview: Severe drought and political turmoil contributed
to Guyana's negative growth of -1.8% for 1998 following six straight
years of growth of 5% or better. Growth came back to a positive 1.8%
in 1999. Underlying growth factors have included expansion in the key
agricultural and mining sectors, a more favorable atmosphere for
business initiative, a more realistic exchange rate, a moderate
inflation rate, and continued support by international organizations.
President JAGDEO, the former finance minister, is taking steps to
reform the economy, including drafting an investment code and
restructuring the inefficient and unresponsive public sector. Problems
include a shortage of skilled labor and an inadequate and poorly
maintained transportation system. Also, electricity has been in short
supply; the privatization of the sector in August 1999 is expected to
improve prospects. The government must persist in efforts to manage
its sizable external debt and extend its privatization program.

@Haiti:Economy

Economy - overview: About 80% of the population lives in abject
poverty. Nearly 70% of all Haitians depend on the agriculture sector,
which consists mainly of small-scale subsistence farming and employs
about two-thirds of the economically active work force. The country
has experienced little job creation since President PREVAL took office
in February 1996, although the informal economy is growing. Failure to
reach agreements with international sponsors have denied Haiti badly
needed budget and development assistance. Meeting aid conditions in
2000 will be especially challenging in the face of mounting popular
criticism of reforms.
