Abstract:Because of financial problems, Sudan's ten-year development plan for the period 1992-2002 failed to reach its targets. However, by the end of the period, the economy had recovered and the standard of living had risen. The National Council for Strategic Planning initiated preparations for a new development plan covering the next 25 years, whose aim would be to achieve the position of a welfare State, making use of international technology and meeting the challenges of the globalizing environment. All sectors of the economy participated in the formulation of the plan, whose main targets include a 7 percent increase in national income, the stabilization of the economy, a decrease in the rate of inflation, the restructuring of the economy, including privatization, an expansion of the taxation base, the achievement of self-sufficiency based on earnings from petrol, and the expansion of social development programmes. Special attention is given to poverty alleviation. Bibliogr. [ASC Leiden abstract]
