Governments across the world have been successful in establishing Economic Zones (EZs) attract large foreign investments, by creating world-class infrastructure, and by overcoming the controls of onerous national fiscal regimes, etc. With this in view, other nations, too, have taken to creating Special Economic Zones.
Government of India was an early adopter of the concept of Economic Zones (SEZs). In the same vein, other nations, too, have been creating Economic Zones (SEZs / FTZs – and their equivalents) as effective instruments to promote trade and industrialization by attracting foreign direct investments (FDIs) in the manufacturing and services sectors, creating jobs, enhancing exports, etc.
