Planning is always with the aim to attain some goals and/or to retain others. To start with, a planner has to formulate these objectives and goals to determine their form and hence the techniques to be used and applied.
When dealing with national planning, one faces problems on the macro-economic level, where certain global objectives are to be achieved such as decreasing and ultimately eliminating unemployment, improving the standard of living, reducing inequalities in income distribution, the achievement of the best possible co-ordination among the plans of the various planning bodies beside other objectives. In a developing country the central plan objectives extend to the field of specifying the means for generating resources, allocating these resources and establishing policies to determine how these resources are to be used. These and other objectives are to be achieved under specific limitations at the top of which is the availability and the requirements of resources which restrict the attainment of these conflicting objectives, conflicting in the sense that all the objectives compete for the same scarce resources.
