Pagination or Media Count:
The term strategy is one of a number of terms that have been borrowed from other fields to enrich the vocabulary of development economics. The author assumes that the development strategies of the Southeast Asian countries are reflected by the allocative pattern or emphasis that has actually characterized the path of development traversed during the 1955-1962 period. Of course, allocative emphasis can be analyzed in many ways. In the brief summary presented the author concentrates on three categories of allocation that are prominent in development literature and in policy discussions namely, allocations a among sectors b between public and private activities and c to trade, more particularly to the growth of exports.
