Part of the New Frontiers in Regional Science: Asian Perspectives book series (NFRSASIPER, volume 1)


Generally, the more realistic, complicated policy decision-making problems have, the more objectives. For example, the road construction project has the objective to contribute to the effective development of the national economy/regional economy and at the same time to contribute to the preservation of natural environment/living environment, especially recently (hereinafter, depending on [1], [3]).
