LetAn,n=1, 2, ... be nonempty subsets of a linear metric spaceE andCn, n=1, 2, ... convex cones ofE. We consider the efficient sets Min(An, Cn) and the aim of this paper is to show that under suitable conditions, the convergence ofAn andCn toA andC respectively, implies the convergence of Min(An,Cn) to Min(A, C). Several illustrative examples are given which clarify the results.
