Five-Year Plan

A multiyear plan for economic development prepared by a government. For example, a five-year plan may state the methods and the amount of development that should be experienced by the industrial sector by the end of the plan. Five-year plans were introduced in the Soviet Union and were adopted by most other 20th-century communist states. For that reason, the term is associated with command economies.
