Abstract: The issue of country size gave rise to little attention in economic literature until the 1960s when the first general analysis was made in Economic Consequences of the Size of Nations (Robinson, 1960). Since then, there has been a substantial expansion of work in this field. Most studies focused on such issues as the relations between country size and economic development, industrial structure and trade patterns (e.g. Chenery and Syrquin, 1975; Jainarain, 1976; Gayle 1986); size and development in large countries (e.g. Chenery, 1982; Perkins and Syrquin 1986); and, in particular, the various implications of size to the economic structure, industrial policy and development strategy of small states (e.g. Demas, 1965; Benedict, 1967; Selwyn, 1975; Dommen and Hein, 1985; Katzenstein, 1985; Forsyth, 1990).
