Abstract

An economic and social regulation policy in 1946 it started in Spain in two areas: one, national, and the other provincial. This paper focuses on the last level in order to study the regional development policy in the *primer franquismo)) (1 939-1 959). Specifically, it analyses the Provincial Plans of economic and social regulation as regional development instruments created in the forties.

These instruments provided the State with information about the inputs from the provinces in order to undertake the industrialization plans as a way to generate higher national economic growth. In the same way, they can be considered the immediate precedent of regional policy performances of the fifties like the Badajoz Plan of 1952 and the Jaén Plan of 1953.
