Speaking with Business Day TV’s Alishia Seckham, Ann Bernstein discussed the potential of Special Economic Zones to stimulate economic growth. She explained, “What we are saying is let’s experiment with a policy reform zone for labour intensive exports in Coega in the Nelson Mandela Bay area which has massive unemployment, and let’s construct a zone that is truly special and designed to attract investors who want to setup factories for low skilled employment.”

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