The book addresses senior policy makers interested in understanding and debating key issues currently faced by the better performing emerging markets throughout the world. Papers in the volume address international capital flows, financial markets, globalization, and private participation in infrastructure development.

The papers included in this book were among those discussed at the Emerging Markets Forum meeting in Jakarta, Indonesia in September 2007. The underlying premise of the book is that growth and development in emerging market economies is now heavily dependent on: international private capital flows; development of financial markets; the countries ability to integrate successfully with the global economy through trade and investment; and their ability to forge public private partnership, including, in infrastructure development. A particular emphasis is on contrasting and comparing experiences in Asia and Latin America.

Foreword

This chapter presents comparative key indicators of infrastructure development and services in 12 countries between 1980 and 2005. The basic objective is to present a broad and quick comparison across countries of the coverage, efficiency and quality of key infrastructure services during the past 30 years. Such comparative data could be of immense value to policy makers, but is currently not readily available.

The comparisons are presented in a series of tables, charts and graphs based on a comprehensive economic, social, financial and sectoral database developed and maintained by the Centennial Group.
