FY 2008/2009 Research Topic: 4-17
Developing Countries and Fiscal Administration Issues

Outline

One of the reasons that developing countries’ governments have had difficulties from “developing” is the issues related to the fiscal administration. The role of the public sector is expected to be large while those countries have vulnerabilities in markets and the private sector, however, transferring to the autonomous fiscal management is greatly hindered due to indigenous and exogenous constraints.
In our research project, the main objective is to analyze the arising/possible issues throughout the fiscal management process – from budgeting to implementing in the fiscal administration – responding the question, “Why developing countries have rigors in realizing their autonomous fiscal management?” Issues discussed are: the factors influencing on both the revenue and expenditure sides; debt management and the fiscal policy; influences of gender/seigniorage/financial policy on fiscal policy; decentralization/market-oriented economic reform and fiscal management.
