After the period of World War II, the Soviet Union forced the Central and Eastern European countries to conclude bilateral agreements with them, which served to integrate the whole region into the Soviet sphere of interest. The Comecon was established by the dictate of Stalin in January of 1949, which had its seat in Moscow. The objective of the organisation was to promote and deepen the economic cooperation among the Central and Eastern European countries. Comecon was characterised by the economic and political influence of the Soviet Union. Instead of providing mutual benefits in the foreign trade relations, one-sided dependency emerged between the Soviet Union and the subordinated countries of the region. The outcome of rigid and bureaucratic regulation of the „command economy” and the application of the fixed price system contributed to the isolation of Central and Eastern Europe in the world economy. The objective of my essay is to analyse the foreign trade relations of the Central and Eastern European countries between 1949 and 1953 within the context of Comecon. In order to better understand the operation of the Soviet Union dominated economic organisation, it is crucial to evaluate the peculiarities of Soviet economic and political interests in Central and Eastern Europe. Because of length constraints, I will not highlight the factors that determined the economic development of the region, including the consequences of forced industrialisation and the collectivisation of the agriculture.
