When speaking about international issues in times long past, the term of third world nation, meant countries that were, in many cases, former colonial holdings of major world powers. That term has come to disuse and for the last 25 years or more, this type of nation has been termed "developing nation(s)"These are undeveloped or developing nations that have so far been unable to keep pace with the advanced, high technologies of economic world powers. As time progresses, there will be fewer developing nations then there is now. This will require help from international agencies, high technology governments and high technology private corporations.
