|Abstract: ||An additive fuzzy goal programming (FGP) model with pre-emptive priority structure is used for allocating scare resources among competing economic sectors in a developing economy. Only limited applications of FGP related to macro-economic development planning have been presented in the literature. In that regard, this paper describes briefly the unique problem of resource allocation in Saudi Arabia, the specific FGP model developed, and the application of the model using real data. The FGP model is shown to be an adequate supporting aid for developing and evaluating alternative strategies for allocating economic resources. Keywords: Fuzzy set theory; Multiple criteria; Fuzzy goal programming; Resource allocation problem; Planning.|
