SEZ Public Participation Workshops
The policy document consists of four sections, namely an introduction, key elements of the SEZs policy, implementation of the SEZ programme and a conclusion.
According to the executive summary of the document, an SEZ is defined as “a geographically designated area of a country set aside for specifically targeted economic activities, which are then supported through special arrangements (which may include laws) and support systems to promote industrial development”. The SEZ programme is a tool that is used by many economies to promote trade, economic growth and industrialisation.
