The 9th Plan encourages cooperation between Government and entities in the private sector for research and development while creating a Long Term Strategic Plan. In the past (during the 4th – 7th plans) increasing energy efficiency in industry was a major emphasis along with strengthening the private sector and diversifying the economy; however, this plan does not place as heavy a weight on efficiency, but still encourages diversification and private sector strength.
