After outlining the background to the National Development Conference, a description is given of the sectoral projection model used for the Conference and the process of reconciliation carried on between estimates by individual sector committees and the estimates derived from the overall model. Some comparisons of different estimates are given, and some of the deficiencies of the present model are briefly discussed.
