The Design Goals of Ada 95 are listed here:
   
   http://www.adapower.com/rm95/arm95_3.html#SEC3

Quoting the first:

  1. Ada was originally designed with three overriding concerns: program
      reliability and maintenance, programming as a human activity, and
      efficiency. This revision to the language was designed to provide
      greater flexibility and extensibility, additional control over storage
      management and synchronization, and standardized packages oriented
      toward supporting important application areas, while at the same time
      retaining the original emphasis on reliability, maintainability, and
      efficiency.
