External financing for sub-Saharan Africa is a vexing problem with no easy solutions. The regions ' macroeconomic policies, domestic savings, and efficiency of resource use - all generally poor - impinge heavily on the size, growth, and timing of external finance. The papers in this symposium volume assume the following: (a) that structural adjustment efforts in most African countries will be intensified and strengthened; (b) macroeconomic imbalances and microeconomic distortions will be minimized if not eliminated; (c) trade, investment policies, and regulatory framework will be streamlined; (d) private savings and investment will be encouraged through financial liberalization; and (e) public investment programs will complement private sector initiative and concentrate on infrastructural deficiencies and human resource development. This volume restates only the essential ingredients of a strategy for resuming growth.
