SEZs for Sustainable Development in Pakistan: Building on the Lessons from China
Aslam, Hina; Sakib, Maaz; Sandhu, Amna | October 2019
The role of Special Economic Zones (SEZs) remains instrumental in the structural transformation and promotion of industrialization across the world. However, research shows mixed results. Asian and Latin American countries have experienced great successes in this regard while Sub-Saharan Africa is still struggling to achieve similar results. The ongoing debate justifies the significant role SEZs play for growth and development. Given that Pakistan has yet to establish its SEZs under CPEC, China has almost 40 years’ worth of relatively successful experience in setting and operating SEZ’s. There is a need to understand the potential benefits of SEZs in Pakistan and lessons policymakers can learn from China.
