WHEREAS, a special training program, conducted by a group of dedicated executives from various industries in an advanced phase of business practices aimed at progressive approaches to management problems in the potential economic planning for future policy decision making, has brought forward a great urge for continued application of this sort of thinking in the many fields of government planning, particularly as it applies to business of the Commonwealth.
