Evaluating Existing Zones Programs for Competitiveness and Development Impact
Unfortunately, many, if not most, zones programs have failed to achieve their objectives. When zones fail to attract investment, create jobs, or stimulate structural reforms, they become a net loss to a country rather than a dynamic engine of growth.
We work with many of these under-performing zones programs. Alongside local zones professionals, we help diagnose the key reasons for failure and develop solutions that will re-position the zones for success. With Locus, you can steer your zones program in the right direction so that it becomes a driver of economic growth and a hub of progress.
