The Economic Development Institute (EDI) was established by the World Bank in 1955 to train officials concerned with development planning, policymaking, investment analysis, and project implementation in member developing countries. At present the substance of the EDl's work emphasizes macroeconomic and sectoral economic policy analysis. Through a variety of courses, seminars, and workshops. most of which are given overseas in cooperation with local institutions' the EDI seeks to sharpen analytical skills used in policy analysis and to broaden understanding of the experience of individual countries with economic development. Although the EDl's publications are designed to support its training activities. many are of interest to a much broader audience. EDI materials. including any findings, interpretations. and conclusions, are entirely those of the authors and should not be attributed in any manner to the World Bank' to its affiliated organizations. or to members of its Board of Executive Directors or the countries they represent.
