CEPAL Review No. 31, April 1987
  • E-ISSN: 16840348


In its simplest expression, this document is based on three premises. The first of these is that planning is capable of playing a major role in consolidating the State, considered as the political manifestation of each Nation. The second is that this role may be shared out within the organizational or administrative structure of each State, and that it is desirable for it to be organized by a highranking institutional body, which, for the purposes of this document, will be generically termed the NPB or National Planning Body. The third premise is that the role played by ILPES in the near future — as at one and the same time a multilateral agency of the United Nations system and an intergovernmental agency— will have as its overall framework the priorities identified in the region in respect of the issues covered by the first two premises.
