Formatted abstract       This dissertation is concerned with the use of economic integration by the developing countries as a policy for encouraging their development. The existing theory is survey in an attempt to ascertain its applicability to this use. Very little is found to guide these countries when they are considering economic integration. The theory, in fact, neglects many important problems attaching to such schemes between these countries. In an attempt to ascertain the scope of and problems involved in such schemes the experience of the Latin American Free Trade Association is examined. This attempt at establishing a free trade area is found to be deficient in many respects and the gains from it relatively insignificant. Because of the many other problems facing these economies it is suggested that it may be more appropriate at this stage for the member countries to seek greater cooperation in other fields, such as infrastructure investment and harmonisations of economic policies, rather than attempt to establish a free trade area.
