Can you please explain what does the term "the economies of X,y and z" mean?

Does it mean that each X , y and z has multiple economies or does it mean that the economy of X, the economy of y and the economy of z ?

You're right that there is ambiguity in those constructions. It's "understood" (like many things in English!) that "the economies of x, y, and z" can mean "the economy of x, the economy of y, and the economy of z". It's a little like saying "we got into our cars". That's also understood to mean that each person got into his or her own car, and not that each person somehow managed to get into multiple cars. :)
