Administrative history

The AC/89 chronological series contains the records of the Sub-Committee on Soviet Economic Policy. This committee was created in December 1954 as the Working Group on the Comparative Study of Economic Trends in the NATO Countries and the Soviet Bloc. In May 1956, it was renamed the "Working Group on Soviet Economic Policy" and its Terms of Reference were expanded (C-R(56)32).Two tasks were assigned to it: to continue the comparative studies on the economy of the NATO nations and countries in the Soviet bloc, and to prepare periodic studies on the economic measures taken by the Soviet Union with regard to other countries, including China. In September 1956, it was tasked with a regular and ongoing mission, taking on the name of "Committee on Soviet Economic Policy". In May 1958, the Committee was renamed the "Sub-committee on Soviet Policy" and was attached to the Economic Committee. The Sub-committee operated under this name until 1970, at which time its name was changed to "Economic Sub-committee on Soviet Economic Policy" (C-R(70)8). As far as the end of its work is concerned, no document has been found attesting to the Sub-committee's disbandment. It appears to have amalgamated with the Economic Committee(1). The last record in this series was circulated on 10 August 1972.
