Scientific and Technical Programs in Commercial Trade


  • V. Korovkin


In the resolution of problems posed by the Twenty-sixth Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union regarding the further raising of the living standard of the Soviet people, a special role is assigned to commercial trade, which has the responsibility of conveying a growing mass of consumer goods to the population. During the Tenth Five-Year Plan state and cooperative retail trade increased by 24%, and trade services available to the working people improved. Nonetheless the level of development and organization of trade still lags behind the growing demands of the population. The decree of the Central Committee of the CPSU and the USSR Council of Ministers "On Measures for the Further Development of Trade and for Improving Trade Services to the Population under the Eleventh Five-Year Plan" (1982) contains concrete measures designed to eliminate these shortcomings and develops and concretizes tasks posed by the Twenty-sixth Congress of the CPSU with regard to the further development of trade.
