Abstract

Concentrates on rural development measures aimed at alleviating rural poverty and agricultural stagnation. Nationalisaton and redistribution of rural lands have been the most fundamental measures, but the peasantry have been increasingly integrated into the national economy through commercial production. State farms, which should also help in integration, are important government policy instruments. Agricultural resettlement will help to fill sparsely inhabited areas and will provide political benefits. Thus, rural development aids economic progress as well as fostering national integration and the promotion of national unity.-D.G.Price
