In the contemporary stage, the developmental state model isof pivotal importance and necessity to the efforts of achieving the national goals ofprosperous people and a strong, democratic, equitable, and civilized country. This paper discusses concepts, roles and basic functions of a state, and analyzes key aspects of the formation ofa developmental state.
