A Tale of Three Countries
Country Economic Report
This economic country study on the different structure, reform and performance of the cotton sector in Mali, Burkina Faso and Benin is part of a series of annual studies, undertaken by various Swedish universities and academic research institutes in collaboration with Sida. The main purpose of these studies is to enhance our knowledge and understanding of current economic development processes and challenges in Sweden's main partner countries for development co-operation. It is also hoped that they will have a broader academic interest and that the collaboration will serve to strengthen the Swedish academic resource base in the field of development economics.This report has been prepared by Yves Bourdet at the Department of Economics at the University of Lund.
