International Specialization and Trade
The reliance on the extensive sources of growth in the Socialist countries in the past also found its reflection in foreign trade. This was most evident up to the early 1950s, when each country strove towards the ideal of self-sufficiency, particularly in industrial production and raw materials. Imports were strictly controlled and limited almost exclusively to industrial equipment and other producer goods, primarily to widen the manufacturing base by establishing new enterprises and industries.
