Emphasising the state's role in the creation of the development climate and in the lessening the development disparities in spatial terms, etatism had been the basic ideology of economic development until the neoliberal policy shift in the 1980s in Turkey. Various institutions played roles in this statist economic development process in Turkey since the 1930s. While some of these institutions were the main actors of state capitalism, some of them took charge in the achievement of nationwide socio-economic development like the State Planning Organisation (SPO). The SPO founded in the planned era (1960-1980) of Turkish macroeconomic policy fulfilled important tasks in central planning of socio-economic development in accordance with the principle of etatism. In both descriptive and critical ways, this paper briefly analyses the statist content of the socio-economic development approach in Turkey in particular to the role of the SPO in centrally planned development.
