      regarded as one of the important instruments for economic, social and cultural

      national policy should encourage the establishment and development of co-operatives. 
      Methods such as appropriate legislation, education and training, and financial 
      and administrative assistance are suggested. It also suggests methods for 
      supervising co-operatives and the implementation of policies promoting them.</td>
