Evaluating the Global Performance of Special Economic Zones

In 2008, Locus Founder and CEO Jean-Paul Gauthier served as overall engagement manager and co-author of "Special Economic Zones: Performance, Lessons Learned, and Implication for Zone Development." The influential and comprehensive report by the the World Bank provides a global review of SEZ experience over the past 30 years. It reviews development patterns and impacts of zones to show some of the key factors behind the success of some zones and the failure of other zones.

Jean-Paul was working as part of a BearingPoint/Deloitte team under a contract from the International Finance Corporation. He collaborated with WEPZA to gather data on zones.
