In a discussion with SA FM’s Cathy Mohlahlana, CDE’s Ann Bernstein commented on the potential of special economic zones in South Africa. “We are calling for, not a wholesale reform, but a modified labour market regime in these zones only, it would be a place where basic health and safety rules apply and where the national minimum wage applies,” she added.

This media interview is based on a new CDE report, ‘What if SA had a special economic zone that was actually special?’
