May 20, 1983
The following article is adapted from Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Lyman's address to the opening session of a conference on "Africa's Economic Crisis" hosted by the CSIS African Studies Program in Washington, D.C. on March 3, 1983. The views are those of the speaker and not necessarily those of the Department of State or any other part of the United States government. The agenda for the conference, attended by over 100 representatives of commercial and investment banks, corporations, Congress, various executive branch departments of the U.S. government, the IMF and World Bank, the media, and academia, appears on page 3 of this issue of CSIS Africa Notes.
