Africa is not a country. It is a continent made up of many different countries. Most of Africa's countries are LEDCs as it is mostly desert and undeveloped.
LEDC stands for Less Economically Developed Country , therefore a country that is mainly agriculturally developed and seeking to become more developed. E.g most countries in Africa including Sudan, Chad, Etheopia, etc... However a NIC (Newly Industralised Country) is a country that has become mor…e developed but still does not quite have the technology to keep this growth under control (like Britain in the technological evoloution 1800's) An example would be Korea and China whilst Japan has become an MEDC as it has the $GNP (Gross National Produce) to go with the countries developed status.

LEDC stands for less economically developed country and in general, LEDCs are non-industrial nations. They tend not to manufacture goods and the residents are usually poor. Another term for LEDCs is Third World nations and there are MEDC's too, that stands for more economically developed countries… and those countries are rich. A few of them are England, Australia and The United States of America. A few of the LEDC countries are Panama, Sierra Leone and Ghana and there several more. Residents of LEDC's countries earn the equivalent of less than $1200 US a year (which is less than $4 US a day). (see a list at the related link) (MORE)

Not really. Indonesia is the only ASEAN member of G-20 and it signs various FTA with other countries. Yes! It is an LEDC.
Tunisia is a LEDC because of several reasons. I'll state some of them. First, the independence and the economic loss. Tunisia have got it's independence on 20 March 1956 from France. When the French left Tunisia, it was in a mess, the problems were mainly 3 : poverty, illiteracy, unemployment. All t…he Tunisian fundings at that time were mainly concentrated on Education under the doctrine of Habib Borgiba, and the Education Minister El Messadi. then the rest of the incomes was headed to the employment through improving the country's infra_structure by building roads and industries, all that was also sponsored by some French who still live in Tunisia. Poverty then was treated through employment. Untill now Tunisia have produced 3 generations of well educated people who are now working in almost every field, however economy in Tunisia is still weak because the main source is Tourism and second exportation of agricultural goods. These two realms are not well predictable ones, not like controlled industry, so Tunisia is still waiting for the last educated generation to make it better through many specialized people in industrial techniques and technologies. You can concider that the main Tunisian investment was not Industry, yet it was Education for that Tunisia is a LECD but with a honorific average of 100% educated people between 06 and 16 years old and almost 3 millions students engaged in higher education and post graduate one, knowing that education is cumpolsory and absolutely free in Tunisia. Thank you. (MORE)

Ghana is an ledc: Ghana is an LEDC country because in the late 16 hundreds theBritish came and took all their natural resources and now they haveno industries. As a result of this Ghana has to borrow money fromthe rich countries and they charge interest on the money. So Ghanagot into debt and still …didn't have the correct natural resourcesfor a good life, so they became and LEDC. Ghana has a high birthrate, low life expectancy, etc. and these are signs of being anLEDC because these factors are usually due to the hygiene andliving conditions of the people who live in the LEDC. Note: Ghana is not now, nor has it even been, considered a LEDC bythe UN Human Development Report. They are listed as a mediumdeveloped country. (MORE)

Ethiopia is known as an LEDC, because of many reasons like its lack of basic human resources like the amount of food and clean water so that everyone can stay fit and healty.Because of the lack of food and clean water people will get ill and there arnt many hospitals or doctors around.

No, Dubai is definitely not a LEDC. Although Dubai is a desert country, it is rich is oil and natural gas, which makes it prosperous.

yes Brazil is a LEDC country (LESS ECONOMICALLY DEVELOPED COUNTRY) yes Brazil is a LEDC country (LESS ECONOMICALLY DEVELOPED COUNTRY) yes Brazil is a LEDC country (LESS ECONOMICALLY DEVELOPED COUNTRY) yes Brazil is a LEDC country (LESS ECONOMICALLY DEVELOPED COUNTRY)
Well there have been many discussions about whether it is because it is quite a rich country. But when you compare it to the UK, the GNP in 1999 in the UK was 1338.1 billion dollars while in Venezuela it was 87.0 billion dollars. So it is still considered an LEDC but is developing.
LEDC=Less economically developed countries ie. Countries like Afric who dont have much money MEDC= More economically developed countries Countries like America and England

An LEDC is a 'Less Economically Developed Country' such as Kenya which is also referred to as a third world country.
Sudan in general is an LEDC but there so many places that you can say is more developing however Sudan is known as and LEDC as it is in poverty and is in civil war.
An MEDC country. Alot of people in Japan are poor and work in hard labour jobs. Others may argue to this that its a MEDC
LEDC - Less Economically Developed Country -> Examples) Brazil, Chile, Peru (and other parts of south America), parts of Africa, places like Zambia, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh etc. ->They tend to have a worse economy than MEDC's. They also tend to have poverty as a current issue. They often have poor work…ing conditions and salaries in work places which tend to be factories or farms. They also tend to have high birth rates because contraception isn't available for them. This encourages schemes like family planning schemes. The women tend to have jobs on farms if they live in rural areas as oppose to urban areas and they have large families. People in rural areas are more likely to die of disease because they have poor sanitation and health facilities. The health facilities are sometimes within 10 miles of a village and the people often have to walk because they don't have sufficient transport (this is a huge problem especially for pregnant women). Children also have to work as well. When they are old enough they go to urban areas to find work and send money back to their families because they don't make much money in rural areas. (MORE)

I would say yes - Montserrat was a British colony, so some people may argue that it was an MEDC, however there are also many African countries that were British colonies, and they would never be considered an MEDC. Therefore, due to the fact that many people have poorly paying jobs, and the island's… economy suffered greatly due to the volcano, I think it is an LEDC. (MORE)

LEDC stands for Least Developed Country. Zimbabwe is the fifteenth least developed country in the world and is located in Africa. Most of Africa is underdeveloped because the continent has only had self-governing countries since about the 1960s. Prior to the 60s, European countries controlled practi…cally the entire continent of Africa (with the exception of Liberia and Ethiopia). Here, they helped hinder the development of many of these lands during a period of Social Darwinism, where Europeans believed they were superior. Zimbabwe has fell victim to this. However, Zimbabwe has also experienced decades of internal problems, such as economic and political problems, such as hyperinflation. Zimbabwe has also been headed by an immensely racist dictator (that some dare to compare to Hitler) since 1987. (MORE)

Syria is an LEDC mainly because the same government (although it is a democracy) has been ruling for 41 years, and they have not been hearing out the citizens' demands for a better country.

Yes, the Philippines are a LEDC Country! This has been provengeographically, by Professor Warner. They spend a lot of money on cleaning up the destruction caused bynatural hazards, as they are on the Phillipine-Eurasion plateboundary, which leads to earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanoes.They're situa…ted in the "ring of fire" - a ring of volcanoes, hometo 75% of the world's most active volcanoes. The are also in thepath of many typhoons, with 241 hitting them between 1905 and 2007,causing just over $9 million in damages. This results in thecountry not having money left over (if you like) to spend on thingssuch as education and health care in order to develop the country. (MORE)
