Abstract

The concept of special economic zones has evolved across the globe. Several developing countries have policies for the establishment of industrial zones that focus on exports and countries have set up strong regulatory and administrative frameworks to support them. Since different countries have different starting points and experiences in developing special economic zones, each country imparts important lessons for India. Using select country cases in Asia, this chapter compares their SEZ policy objectives, administrative structure, incentives, and contribution with those in India and makes recommendations for Indian SEZs.
