What were Nazi plans for Bohemia and Moravia prior to the war?

Were there any specific plans for these areas after they became protectorates? Was the goal to settle them with Germans and annex them directly? I know there were plans during the war, but anything before?

Bohemia and Moravia became protectorates in March 1939,the war started 6 months later . It is questionable that the Germans had made plans about the future of Bohemia and Moravia during these 6 months .To settle them with Germans is impossible,as there were no Germans willing to live in B and M ,and as no one knew what to do with the Czechs .The Czechs and their economy were absolutely needed before and during the war .
