Produced by the World Bank, this collection of twelve articles on special economic zones (SEZ) examines a variety of types of specially designated industrial and export oriented areas and measures the relative success of these arrangements in several cases studies. Divided into three sections covering attracting investment and job creation, measuring the efficacy of SEZs in producing lasting structural change, and social and environmental impacts of SEZs, individual articles address such topics as Chinese investment in African SEZs, fostering economic and policy innovation in developing countries and low-carbon green SEZs. Papers provide illustrations, tables and sidebars. Contributors include World Bank staff and academic and professional development experts.
