    prospects for or of

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask which preposition is more appropriate in the sentence:

    The law does not give a clear idea about real operating conditions in the industry and further prospects for/of the industry development will be determined by adoption of corresponding regulations.

    The prospects for something=future opportunities/chances of.
    I would use "The prospects for".
