Mter describing the interrelation of the various factors and their relative importance in the dynamics of economic progress in the Orien!, we were able to suggest the broad outlines for the planned development ofOriental economy. We were, of course, aware of the limitations and obstacles which any planning policy will have to face in the countries of the Middle East. We have alread'y referred to some of them in the foregoing chapters. Reconstruction in Oriental countries means a carefully conceived and gradually increasing direction of economic activity.. To achieve this an elastic system of governmental guidance and control is required, linked to international agencies working along the same lines; something not too rigid in its conception, and adapted to the local conditions in each case. Individual methods for each country or region will have to be adopted and varied according to the situation; while different periods will be needed for efficiently carrying out the projects selected for execution.
