Abstract: This paper is concerned with metric projections onto a closed subset $ S$ of a finite-dimensional normed space. Necessary and in a sense sufficient conditions for directional differentiability of a metric projection at a boundary point of $ S$ are given in terms of approximating cones. It is shown that if $ S$ is defined by a number of inequality constraints and a constraint qualification holds, then the approximating cone exists.
