Less-developed Countries, Structural Adjustment Programme, SAP
This paper is a review of the impact of Structural Adjustment Programme (SAP) on the economies of ten less developed countries (LDCs). It analysed the performance of some selected macroeconomic variables both before and after SAP was adopted in the selected countries. Based on available data, the several and collective lesson of experience confirmed that the impact of SAP varied not only amongst countries, but also within the various sectors in the same economic entity. Overall, it may be concluded that the broad theoretical objective of SAP was achieved mainly on the external sectors of the countries surveyed, while it tended to have less salutary effect on the domestic sectors of the selected LDCs.
