Seven years of experience with the sovnarkhozes makes it possible to draw several conclusions and advance suggestions about the advisability of adjusting the boundaries of the economic regions of Kazakhstan for the purpose of obtaining maximum effectiveness from the new system for managing and directing the economy. At the present time here there are two economic regions -- the Semipalatinskiy and the Vostochno-Kazakhstanskiy which complement one another with respect to specialization in production. The advisability of consolidating the Semipalatinsk and Vostochno-Kazakhstan regions is dictated by the need for further curtailment of the administrative-management apparatus. In number of enterprises, volume of gross output, volume of capital investment, and number of workers, Semipalatinskiy Sovnarkhoz occupies last place in Kazakhstan. On the other hand, in number of workers in the apparatus needed for every 1,000 laborers the Semipalatinskiy Sovnarkhoz, along with the ZapadnoKazakhstanskiy Sovnarkhoz, leads all other sovnarkhozes 4.55 persons in comparison with 3.4 persons on the average for the republic. The rearrangement of the management and direction of the economy and the formation of consolidated rural regions production administrations which took place following the November Plenum of the Central Committee of the CPSU facilitates combining the present Severo-Kazakhstanskaya and Kokchetavskaya Oblasts.
