The Substantiation of Longrange Plans for the Country's Economic and Social Development


  • V. Maier
  • V. Rutgaizer
  • D. Chernikov


The development of the national economy in conformity with a plan demands the precise coordination in time of all elements in the expanded reproduction process. To a considerable degree a fifteen-year period corresponds to the goals of long-range planning, which is called on to realize the strategic function of plan-nedness. The specifics of long-range planning projections for such a period were defined as follows at the Twenty-Fifth Congress of the CPSU: "The reference points for 15 years naturally cannot and should not be of such a mandatory nature and as detailed as five-year plans. They have a different purpose: to determine in good time the character and scale of the tasks confronting us, to concentrate efforts on their resolution, to see potential problems and difficulties more clearly, to facilitate the elaboration and fulfillment of programs and plans that go beyond the framework of the five-year plan period."1
