9 the USSR has made great efforts to improvewith and among the European Satellites. These efforts have broughtonsiderable degree of coordination of the Soviet and Satellite economies. The question is raised, however, whether the Soviet leaders are working only for coordination of the Soviet Bloc or whether, beyond that, they areore complete integration of the several economies. This report, in analyzing economicand integration, evaluates the present state of coordination within the Bloc and treats the question of whether the Soviet leaders are expanding coordination into full integration.

Summary and Conclusions

Although significant and rather stoady progress has been made in integrating the economies of the Soviet Blocs notthat the Bloc will be fully integrated It is concluded that the Soviet leaders will strive to perfect and extend present coordination of the European Satellite economies and to work toward the eventual goal of full economic integration of the Bloc.

The leading organizations working toward coordination andof the Soviet Bloc economies are the Council for Economic Mutual Assistance (Sovot Ekonomlcheskoy Vzaymnoyhe state planning commissions and offices, and the ministries of foreign trade of the USSR and of the Satellites. The key organization is CEMA. which has general supervision over planning in all Satellites. CEMA's position in tho Bloc is that of an international agency servinglearinghouse for broad economic planning, production, and trade, activities of the European Satellites. The members of CEMA are the USSR. Poland,'Rumania, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Albania, and East Germany. Its operations are supervised by its Council, in which all member countries share representation. CEMA'sflavor is tempered, however, by the fact that in reality it is an agency carrying out the Bloc-wide economic objectives of the USSR. Consequently, Gosplan. the Council of Ministers, and the Central Committee of the Communist Party, USSR, function as organizations supervising and guiding CEMA.

* The estimates and conclusions contained in this report represent the best judgment of | |as of

The techniques employed by CEMA and related organizations revolve primarily around economic planning. CEMA. above all, is an organization coordinating plans among the European Satellites and between the Satellites and the USSR. This coordination is concerned mainly with the investment plans and production specialization patterns of the Satellite countries. In addition to this activity, CEMA, the state planning commissions, and the ministries of foreign trade all establish and guide Satellite trade policies.



Progress in achieving the objectives of CEMA. as set forth in the original CEMAas been uneven. Among these objectives, economic reconstruction of the member countries seems to have been realized or, at least, is well on its way. Steps also have been taken toward increasing the specialization of productionoviet Bloc-wide framework of division of labor and toward expanding the scope of standardization of products and materials within the member countries. These accomplishments are reflected by official statements as well as by existing production emphases whereby each member country specializes in producing certain commodities for itself and for the other members of the Bloc. The standardization of specifications as well as of production and management processes is based chiefly on Soviet standards which are being employed widely throughout the Bloc. That part of the CEMA Agreement calling for complementarywithin the Bloc is being achieved through coordinated planning, division of labor, bilateral trade agreements, and efforts aimedoordinated price system.

Soviet control over the direction and composition of Soviet Bloc trade is manifested in Soviet delegations working in the CEMA countries, in the prevalence of inter-Satellite trade agreements, snd through the establishment of regularized and specific trading In addition to controlling broad trade policies of the Satellites, the USSR supervises the intra-Bloc trade of certain specificThese controls over Bloc trade effectively contribute to the coordination and integration of the Bloc economies.

* See Appendix A.

A number of problems have developed9 which have impeded efforts toward.coordination and .integration. Complete inter-Satellite cooperation is prevented by occasional competitive bidding for Western markets snd by instances of trade monopolisation in certain commodities. Soviet planning directives on the first long-term plans of the Satellites have at times been overambitious. Problems arising from confused Soviet directives and from failure to coordinate plan revision! between individual countries have been left to Satellite officials to solve. In addition, confusion snd delays in shipping commodities among the Satellites and sporadicof delivery contracts, as well as shipping delays on the part of the USSR, have hindered the smooth growth of intra-Soviet Bloc coordination. An important problem facing Soviet leaders has been to gain the cooperation of all necessary officials in the CEMA countries for the carrying out of Soviet policies, which arein conflict with nationalistic sentiments. The pricing system is the least developed aspect of Soviet Bloc integration, as reflected in instances of price haggling between the Satellites, in price setting by individual countries, and in occasional inter-Sstellite price discrimination. Failure to solve these problems may well slow down and possibly even prevent integration...

ingle economic plan for the entire Soviet Bloc, in the senseingle master plan, has not yet been created, the plans ofe Satellites are now being coordinated with one another and with the USSR with respect both to major policies and to production goals for certain key commodities. The plan coordination among Bloc countries has increased to such an extent that their economies may now be regarded as largely coordinated, and although it is notthat the Bloc will be fully integratedhe eventual Soviet goal is. nevertheless, the full economic integration of the Bloc.

I. Introduction.

Coordination involves aligning various functions, usually of different organizations, and combining and orienting themore or less specific goal in order to achieve the results ofand harmonious action. For the purposes of this report, economic coordination is defined as centrally supervised Soviet Bloc plknning, production, and trade, with broad policy direction emanating from the USSR, Coordinationirst step in anytoward integration*

hase of development beyond coordination, involves uniting into one function, or placing under theingle organisation, those functions which previously had been performed separately by independent units or organisations* For the purposes of this report, economic integration is defined as comprising the following factors:entralized planning and division ofentralised allocations of raw and finishedhe establishmentoordinated and interlocked system of short- and long-term tradehe absence of harmful inter-Satellitenified price structure and financial system;xtensivein production and services, including the use of Soviet standards and specifications and the extensive use of technical assistance programs throughout the Soviet Bloc,

Once alt of these conditions are present, Soviet Bloc ^wideintegration would be an accomplished fact. For the functions of planning, production, trade, and finance, the Bloc could beas being an integral economic unit having unified economic goals and being directed by one authoritative organisation.

Whether or not the Soviet leaders are striving simply forof the economies or, beyond that, for integration is difficult to ascertain. Although it has been adequately demonstratedide range of sources that full coordination is being attempted, the

situation is not equally clear regarding integration. The USSR mayossible objectives in this Jatter respectomplete economic integration or only partial integration. If Soviet objectives can be obtained through partial integration, the Soviet leaders will not risk incurring Satellite' dissenslon-hy insisting upon more com-plete unification. Pragmatically, economic integration isoal in itBelf buteans toward the accomplishment of other objectives. An apparent lessening in the movement towardtherefore, would not necessarily mean that integration has been lost sight of or is being abandoned. essening might reflect either satisfaction on the part of the USSR with progress already achieved in this direction or temporary concessions granted to the Satellites by the USSR. These concessions, however, would not be such as to impede seriously major Soviet goals for the Bloc.

Long-range Soviet economic goals for the Bloc include the further Industrialisation of the member countries and the development and raising of individual Satellite production without losing control over these countries. The Soviet leadersignificantly increased gross national product (GNP) .for: the.Bloc and astronger^ trading position with regard to the West while regaining.relatively -independent of it. They also desire, through the mediumtrong Bloc, to penetrate underdeveloped countries .such aa those* iA Asia, Chiefly by the use of extensive economic-aid.

Bloc economic system. Thus East Germany sndor example, are measurably contributing to the industrialisation of Albania and Chins. These short-range goals, as well as the longer range ones, establish the need for atoordinated, if not an integrated. Bloc economic system.

Proceeding beyond mere coordination, the movement towsrd Soviet Bloc economic integration perhaps inevitably stems in part from the nature of past and contemporsry Soviet Communism. If current Soviet dogma callsontinued and unlimited political and economic expansion (at an accelerating rale) as being necessary for the over-all advancement of Communism, then Bloc economic integration can be considered an eventual Soviet goal. itation of some Communist doctrinal statements supports this assumption. The worlddoctrine, which is well established, has been reiterated as recentlyenin prophesied that,eries of initial political and economic upheavals, nations would be mergedreat socialist unity.e also talkedfree federation of nations innd of the necessity.for "Russia" tothe advanced countries economically. 4/ Elaborating on this theme, Stalin notednion and collaboration of nationsingle world economic system is the material basis for world socialism,n the unfolding of the world revolution, hesocialist center" will form, attracting to itself all countries gravitating toward socialism. 6/ ommunist handbook statedorld dictatorship-of the proletariat would be promoted when newly established proletarian republics enterfederal union" with existing proletarian republics. 7/ Although theseof dogma are selective rather than inclusive, they dooctrinal basis for future economic integration of the Bloc.

The economic advantages which would accrue to the USSRnified Soviet Bloc economy point up the significance for the West of movements toward Bloc coordination and integration. Expanded trade capabilities stemminglanned division of labor and specialization of production in the various Satellites would result in better utilization of productive resources. This in turnigher degree of economic self-sufficiency for both the USSR and the Bloc. Developments in standardization of both specification and production.processes throughout the Bloc, supportedystem in which major .investments are planned from the USSR, also would contribute to- greater Bloc economic efficiency. rowth in over-all GNP should also result from .these developments.

II. Organizational and Administrative Structure for Coordinated Economic Planning.

Soviet programs and activities are normally carried out with the help of special*institutional structures. The main organizations dealing with Soviet Bloc coordination and integration in the USSR and in the Satellites are CEMA, the state planning commissions or offices, and the ministries of foreign trade. With respect to economicand integration, the State Planning Committee (Gosplan) is superior in rank to CEMA, which works with the.Ministry of Foreign Trade, USSR. In all these activities, CEMA is superior to tbe planning commissions and the ministries of foreign trade of the member countries

A. Organization and Structure of CEMA.

CEMA, which was organized inas considered to be in part an answer to the West's Organization for EuropeanCooperation. It was also intended to facilitate trade among the Satellites, to increase their general productive capacity, and toto their greater self-sufficiency. 8/ iore basic objectivo in the establishment of CEMA, however, wae the coordination of Soviet


Bloc-wide planning and production so as to workivision of production for the mutual benefit of members of the Soviet Bloc, to standardize and Increase industrial production, to give grants and loans, and to make investments within the Satellites. 9/ At the time of its formation the signatory countries' were the USSR, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Rumania, Hungary, and Bulgaria. Albania joined9 and East Germany* '

The known organizational structure, ofs simple. It consistsupreme Council, an Executive Committee (Secretariat)ecretary General, and principal sections for planning,and production, foreign trade, labor, finance and price policies, raw materials, and capitalist market analysis. Subordinate to CEMA areilateral councils for economic and technical cooperation whichroliferation of subordinate commissions and committees, It is presumed that the main offices of these bilateral councils are located at the CEMA headquarters in Moscow. Finally, there are CEMA organizational outlets in the member

The Council's membership is composed of the CEMA countries, each being representederson with ministerial rank and/or otherof the economic institutions.n accordance with Soviet organizational patterns, the Supreme Council is the over-all, official ruling body of CEMA. its role being similar to (hat played by.the Supreme Soviet in the government of the USSR.

Real power within CEMA proper, however, is exercised not by the Council, but by the Executive Committee (Secretariat). This Committee, according to one report, even possesses the power "to deal with air questions related to economic cooperation within the Sovietocated in Moscow, the Committee is permanent, and is under the chairmanshipecretary.

Representatives from the member countries to CEMA's Executive Committee in Moscow, as well as people working on CEMA matters in the various Satellites, are members of their respective planning committees, ministries of foreign trade, or other industrial ministries. This has been noted in the USSR, Bulgaria,ast Germany, zechoslovakia,lbania, Rumania, andn addition to the representatives from the state planning commissions and the ministries of foreign trade, specialists from various industries are brought into CEMA discussions from time to time when their particular industries are TheCommittee in Moscow has been reported astaff ranging

Below the Executive Committee arc theilateral councils (one for every combinationember countries). These are supported by at least the following commissions:

Each of these commissions, in turn, is assisted by several committees, such as the Committee for Commodity Exchange under the Foreign Trade Commission and the Committee for Division of Labor of theCommission for Industry, The number of these Committees, accordingly, ishe commissions meet-to resolve specific questions regarding plan coordination. These organizations,to and loosely grouped under CEMA.ast andinterlocking system of councils, commissions, and committees, all devoted to Soviet Bloc-wide economic coordination.

It is assumed, therefore, that there is an organization within each Satellite government that is termed office of either Scientific and Technical Cooperation or of Economic Cooperation, which acts as the CEMA outlet within the respective countries. In addition, the state planning commissions and offices, as well as the ministries of foreign trade of the Satellites, maintain close working relations with CEMA.

C- Soviet Bloc Ministries of Foreign Trade and the Soviet Chief Directorate of Economic Relations.

Close working relations also exist between CEMA and the ministries of foreign trade of the member countries. In addition, the Chief Directorate of Trade with the People's Democracies Within the Ministry of Foreign Trade,eals with Satellite tradeand the Chief Directorate of Economic Relations (Glavnoye Upravleniye Ekonomicheekoy Svyaz'uSSR, maintains representatives in Albania, Bulgaria, East Germany, Communist China, North Korea, North Vietnam, and possibly even in Yugoslavia, Burma, Afghanistan, and India. The main purpose of such representation relates to the Soviet technical assistance programs.

The key economic planning agencies of the Satellite governments are the state planning commissions (State Planning Office inand National Planning Office inhich maintain working contact with the following Soviet agencies concerned with Satellite and Soviet Bloc-wide planning: CEMA, Gosplan, and the Ministry of Foreign Trade. With respect to Gosplan'a role, Kaganovichecent speech called for an improvement in both the system and the practice of long-range coordinated Soviet Blocuch an improvement may have been one reason for the organizational change (inividing the Soviet planning organization into the State Economic Commission (Gosudarstvennaya Ekonomicheskaya Komissiya Gosekonomkomissiya) for short-range planning and Gosplan for long-range planning. Existent evidence of long-range Bloc planight support the assumption that the Soviet planning apparatus (or that part of it found in Gosplan) is now structurally more able to concentrate on coordinating long-range Bloc planning. In thisepartment of Long-Term and Prospective Plans was created within the Polish State Economic Planning Commission in Details of the working relations between the USSR and the Satellite agencies thus far are not precisely known.

' ' it ion in Production.

Communist leaders have recognizedumber of years the economic advantages Inherent in production specialization

according to the principle of comparative advantage. They have declared their intention to move toward an economically integrated orbit by having each country specialize, at least to some extent, in those commodities to which it Is best suited by virtue of its natural

resource base. For example. Otto Grotewohl,'Prime Minister of East Germany, statedecent speech that it would be possible to encourage the production of certain products in the country in which

the most favorable conditions exist. 8Sfecent Rumanian news-

Each of these countries develops its economy in the light of its natural resources, domestic needs, and the demands of the entire world "Democratic" market. Without cooperation in planning it would be impossible to organize and maintain this division ofzechoslovak economic journal stated that, although it is notary for every nation to build up all branches of heavy industry, each nation should be able to develop that branch of heavy industry for which it has particularly favorable

ecent article in Szabad Nep states that the socialist international distribution of labor makes it possible for each country to produce chiefly those products and to develop those branches of industry for which the conditions in each country are most favorable. Although creationase of primary materials andational heavy industry is necessary for each country because these constitute the basisealthy development of the entire nation's economy, there are distipct opportunities for specialization under the peculiar conditions existing in the several

All of these statements ^appeared in4lthough declarations of Communist leaders concerning specialization and division of. labor among the Satellites have appeared from time to time in previouseritable raft of such statements has been made during the past year. Another significant aspect of these declarations is that they relate not only to division of labor which has already taken place or is now taking place, but also to that which is to occur in the future.

There appears at first glanceontradiction in-current Communist doctrine which states on the one hand that each member country of the. Soviet Bloc muse "build a. heavy industrial base but on the other hand that each must specialize in thoseodifies for which it is best .suited by reason of its natural resource base and by virtue of .Bloc,he.Soviet explanation of this apparent contradiction would lie in three, main points, as follows:

First, over-all Soviet economic goals are morethan pure "economic" efficiency, abstractly conceived. pecific goal, such as development of machine building, might be pursued, irrespective of the cost factor,eeming loss might be allowed in developed specialization.

Second, each country's long-range development and strength must be taken into consideration. Some Soviet Bloc specialization perhaps may be sacrificed for the long-term goal of strengthening each country's industrial development. Each country



thus would have an industrial safety factor of atimited heavy industrial development to rely uponar situation in which it might be severed from the Bloc.

Third, the establishmentudimentary industrial base in each country, seemingly contrary to specialization, may in the long run facilitate specialization by enabling each country to become more flexible in its production abilities and thus better able to handle various central production assignments. This would stem from the fact that each country wouldore ramified and widely distributed industrial capacity. Current plans call for the various countries to specialize with respect to capacity and resources within the broad frameworkeavy industrial base.


Since World War II, and especially since thein the "new course" inach of the Satellites, as noted above, has sought,reater or lesser degree, to provide itself with some formeavy industrial base, if such base has.not been developed previously and to enhance its specialization in the production of certain commodities. Although some of thia specialization has resulted of necessity from the type of natural resources base with which each country is endowed, more of it has resulted from deliberately planned development. Although it is not-possible to quantify precisely the degree of specialization already developed among the Satellites, information concerning trends in specialization and the types ofapecialized'in can be obtained by examination of existingproduction patterns, by analysis of trade patterns, and by consideration of known instances of deliberately planned specialization.

Distribution Patterns.

In viewthe relatively short period of time that Satellite production has been influenced by national planning and by inter-Satellite coordination, broad patterns of commodity distribution among the Satellites should reflect in part the specializations inherent in the natural resources base as well as in the historical pattern of industrial development of each of these countries. The historical production patterns* may provide insight into the patterns that may be expected to emerge from future coordination and integration.


Exports are generally indicative of production specialization in the exporting country. ountry^ exports increase faster than its GNPiven period, the inference can be made, other factors remaining constant, that specialization in the production of export commodities has been increasing during

d. Planned Development of Specialization.

Thereumber of known instances of planned specialization in one or another of the Satellites. The development of the aluminum industry of Hungary is probably the foremost example. Considerable specialization hag also taken place in the chemicaland will no doubt be increasedesult of efforts which are being made among the major chemical-producing .countries

In the past several years there have been many reports of collaboration occuring between various Satellites in the field of industry in addition to those in foreign trade. Agreements which have been signed between Hungary and Poland and between Hungary and Czechoslovakia are designed to bringore rational utilization of the available metal rolling equipmenthe agreements allocated production of different kinds of rolled metals among the threelso, attempts reportedly were made to coordinate iron and steel production among Hungary, Poland, and Czechoslovakia.

Development of specialization among the Satellites has been furthered greatlyeries of bilateral productionagreements and similar protocols signed among the Satellitesresumably under the guidance of CEMA.

Specialization in the Sixth Five Year Plan Period.

Various statements have been made by Satellite officials concerning the branches of industry in which each country is to specialize during theear planhich are to be developed and carried out within theSoviet Bloc-wide plans. In addition, two other statements are of considerable significance. An article in Pravda pointed out that "disproportions" had developed in the economies of the European Satellitesesult of their efforts to buildeavy industrial base in each country. By "disproportion" the author meant that the growth of agricultural production was insufficient to satisfy the growing needs of the workers. Theso disproportions were liquidated by regrouping capital investments; such regrouping, however, was notetreat from the primary development of heavy/ Present andear plans may further correct these disproportions1', either by concentrating production on agricultural products in those Satellites with primarily rural economies (Albania, Bulgaria, andr by deemphasizing heavy industry in favor of agriculture in some of the other countries.

The participation of CEMA in Soviet Blocis littlo known, although it seems to be expressed in the implementation of Soviet standards in the Satellites as well as through the medium of Soviet technical assistance.

The extensive part being played by technical assistance in standardization, within the framework of CEMA's guidance, should not be underestimated. umber of Soviet specialists have acted as advisers to all Soviot Bloc countries. In addition, technical specialists from the more industrially advanced Satellites are sent into the more rural ones to advise on technical problems. reat deal of technical information is exchanged among the Satellites and between theand the USSR.

C. Trade Relationships.

The intensification and regulation of intra-Soviet Bloc trade transactions have an intimate and direct relation to economicand integration. There are three main types of intra-Bloc economic collaborationhe technical-cooperation agreements, the general economic agreements (relating to productionnd the trade agreements. Since only the lattor type is considered to be an instrument specifically for trade, it is the only one of the three that is discussed in this report.

3. Trade Agreements.

A significant device used by the Soviet government in controlling long-range plans of the Soviet Bloc countries is that of control over long-term trade agreements. asic element inCEMA control over trade is the regulation and general supervision of the extensive bilateral trade agreements, or treaties, which determine both the system of trade and lta mannerhese agreements arc usually made between the ministries of foreign trade of the respective countries, and they cover specific commodities at fixed ruble/ Although bilateralism in intra-Bloc trade is the norm, there have been some instances of trilateral agreements./ Finally, there appear to be an Increasing number of long-term agreements,/ probably in support of the long-range economic plan.

IV. Prospects for Coordination and Integration.

Many obstacles must be overcome before complete economicof the Soviet Bloc is attained. Although Soviet leaders are generally successful at solving problems within their area of control, it is entirely conceivable that formidable obstructions have forced and will continue to force compromises in Bloc Integration,

One of the obstacles to smooth coordination has been an clement of competition between individual Satellites, such as that in exploiting export markets outside.the Soviet Bloc. Report* show competitive bids by Satellites, the failure of one Satellite to inform another of external export bids, and the monopoly of trade in certain commodities./ This indicates imperfectly coordinated planning. There is also the problem of inter-Satellite competition for specific material* in short supply. Carefully planned material allocations may alleviate but expected to solve the problem of internal Bloc shortages.

Other obstacles that coordination faced In the past were at the planning level. Becauseontinuing autarkic orientation among the Soviet Bloc countries and insufficient experience in the field of intra-Bloc planning, early efforts at coordination were frequently esult, unduly ambitious programs were forced on some Satellite* by CEMA. investment plans were not coordinated, and export commitments essential to tho plans of the Satellites were not fulfilled. There were cases of plan revisions in one country which were not coordinated with the plans of other countries, leading to mounting confusion in the planning of production. / Centrally planned specialization also may be hindered by nationalistic sentiments still persisting within the Satellites.

Delays and even failures of one Satellite or of the USSR toplanned shipments to another Satellite, following from weaknesses in coordinated planning, create inevitable production bottlenecks for the recipient/ For example, failures have occurred in the' shipment of construction blueprints and of plant and construction equipment, and there have been instances when an excess number of railroad cars was sentarticular/ "

insufficient export orders from the USSR for an East German plant, sudden cancellation by the USSRrade agreement with East Germany, lack of cooperation between two Satellitesanufacturing process, excessive bureaucracy within CEMA, refusal by an East German ministry, to submit production information to the Soviet trade delegation, and disagreements and contract violations


between member countries./ There also havehas forced Satellites to export item* needed in thbir Thus Poland was forced to overexport chemicalsPolish industry.


Movements toward Soviet Bloc integration thus have faced re'curring obstacles which apparently have forced certain compromises by Soviet officials.ih this connection. The compromises have resulted in giving more consideration to nationalistic sentiments within certain Satellites.

Some of the above problems would be inevitable in any coordinated effort, and others (such as superfluous bureaucracy) seem relatively inconsequential to the success or failure of economic integration. In fact. Soviet Bloc coordination may not suffer unduly frommall degree of Satellite competition in external Bloc trade.

Recent developments in East Germany, where the USSR abolished the Soviet High Commission, returned the joint companies, and signedGerman agreements granting "sovereignty" to that country, all point up the Soviet desire to end or at least to diminish its more obvious and crude forms of control over the Satellites. Soviet officials appear to be placing more reliance on the relatively subtle techniques of control, such as CEMA and the Communist Parties. Other developments, such as abolishing all but one of the joint Soviet* Rumanian Corporations, also point up thltf trend.

The termination or deemphasis of the more obvious forms of Soviet control over the Bloc has set the stage for erecting anof mutual cooperation between the USSR and the Satellites and among the Satellites themselves.

In spite of the obstacles and compromises noted in the movement toward coordination and integration of the Soviet Bloc economies, demonstrable progress has been made in this direction. -aThe if olio wing conclusions may be drawn:

he economic plans for all the European Satellites are being coordinated forear plan, with all plans but those of Bulgaria running coterminous'for this period. Over-all direction of the economic,plans of the Satellites as well asover the planning of specific items, at least for some commodities, are exercised by the USSR through the instrumentality of CEMA- In Soviet Bloc-wide planning, CEMA is the mainthrough which Soviet economic directives are disseminated throughout the Bloc and isolicy body for receiving and clearing Satellite plans for Soviet approval. In addition, CEMA directly intervenes and controls the planning of certain commodities for production and trading by the Satellites. In all these activities, CEMA is considered to be at least indirectly subordinate to Gosplan, USSR, and to the Council of Ministers, USSR.

n spite of rather extensive and progressively systematic Soviet Bloc-wide plan coordination, there is too little evidence to stateingle economic plan involving all leading commodities in all the Satellites exists, although some trends seem to point toward the eventual establishment oflan.



Efforts continue toward workingivision of labor throughout the Soviet Bloc which could be expected to result in greater Blocevelopment, and independence. On the principle that each Satellite should develop atudimentary base of heavy industry if such does not already exist, each country has begun planned specialization in the commodities for which it is best suited from the point of view of raw materialseveloped industries, andlocation, as well as of the economic needs of the Bloc. In addition to specialization in production, the members of the Bloc are tn the process ofumber of commodities and some services thus pointingore integrated economic Bystem.

Although the Soviet Bloc countries use the ruble as themonetary unit in Bloc trade and more or less adhere to stabilized prices,fotr intra-Bloc trade, extensive financial integration within the Bloc haset been achieved. The pricing system is the least developed aspect of Bloc integration.

The organizational components carrying out coordination and integration within the Soviet BlocCEMA, the Communist Party, the state planning commissions and offices, and the ministries of foreign tradend related organizations seem adequately structured to achieve the results desired by the USSR in the way of economic coordination and integration.

The Soviet Bloc has nowegree of coordination sufficient to typify itoordinated economy. Proceeding from coordination to the question of integration, the Soviet leaders haveery positive start in this direction, and some features of economic integration of the Bloc have already been achieved. it is concluded,ong-range goal of the present Soviet leadership. umber of features of integration have not been realized as yet (such as complete central material andallocations, the elimination of any marked inter-Satellite competition,ompletely unified financialhe trend toward integration has been in force

lthough significant and rather steady progress has been made9 in integrating the economies of the Soviet Bloc, it is not anticipated that the Bloc will be fully integrated It is concluded that the Soviet leaders will continue to work toward the eventual goal of full economic, integration of the Bloc.'

Two main approaches are possibletudy of economic integration in the Soviet Bloc. The first approach is that of analyzing production and trade data for the individual countries within the Bloc. To be mostthese data would have to be broken down by specific commodities. Additional information would be required to place these data in context and to relate them to integration. The second main approach is that of analyzing all available official Soviet and Satellite statements and reports, as

I in order toeterminatruu ui me existing state oi Bloc coordination and integration. The limitations of the latter approach are that it does not benefit from the detailed commodity data called for in the first method. This report utilized the second approach because of serious information gaps in the commodity data,ertain amount of available Satelliteinformation and some trade statistics were employed.

The criteria forivision of labor among Satellites were those of official Soviet and Satellite statements, knownthe distribution of production, and export patterns. The latter two criteria are understandably indirect in the determination and analysis of specialization. To be fully answered, however, this problem would require considerably more research in several different fields than was undertaken for this study.


t and

Because of frequently sparse information on important questions this report waa more successful in pointing up trends towardthan in determining the precise state of progress in pac present integration.








The most fruitful sourcestudy such as this are documentary accounts of the organization and activities of Soviet Bloc coordinating and integrating organizations and mechanisms, such as CEMA. In this connection, official statements of Soviet and Satellite officials were considered, when applicable, as authoritative when reporting such events as CEMA activities.
