Formulating Industrial Development Policies: A Zero-One Goal Programming Approach

Industrial development is a complex process that varies among countries, reflecting differences in their social structures and goals, population patterns, natural resource endowments and capital formation. Previous studies indicate that the newly industrializing countries' (NICs) exports have concentrated on specific products in which the NICs have a comparative advantage over other countries. Therefore, one of the critical issues in industrial development is selection of industries which would optimize the allocation of scarce resources and satisfy the multiple and conflicting goals of the country. A zero-one goal programming model is developed to assist the industrial policy planners to comprehend the relations between industries and the achievement of multiple goals with different priorities
