Is the A necessary?

No, but it becomes a very general statement without it. Sounds like "Poor countries have few roads". Almost like a definition.

That's also what I understood from the original English sentence. It applies to every poor country.

Yes. The difference is small. You could also add "the" to "poor countries". And you could state a fact, or you could make a statement about the usual characteristics of poor countries.
