About this product
- DescriptionOne of the most remarkable structural changes which took place in the world ecomy in the 1970s and the first half of the 1980s is undoubtedly the growth of export processing zones (EPZs) in the developing countries and areas: employment in these zones grew from around 50,000 in 1970 to over 1.3 million by 1986. Judging from the current plans for new EPZs in over a dozen countries and the expansion plans for existing zones, it would seem that employment in EPZs could continue to grow rapidly in the next few years. The phemen of EPZs and the role of multinational enterprises in them have been the subject of heated debate. This mograph sheds light on the multinationals' contribution to employment generation, export earnings, techlogy transfer and the development of linkages with the local ecomy. These are measured against the initial cost of the incentive package for establishing and maintaining the zones. Questions related to working conditions and labour relations are also highlighted. The book confronts a number of widely held assumptions with the available facts and figures, and points to the possible evolution of EPZs in the ecomies of newly industrializing countries. It envisages the emergence of the export processing country and a more open and competitive approach to industrial development.
