Beyond the Bike - Special Economic Zones in China and Africa

Ruth Tarrant

27th November 2015

The final extract of the OCR Global Economy pre-release case study for F585 refers to the impact of Special Economic Zones for development in Zambia. The adoption of the SEZ approach in Zambia echoes China's approach to developing its own country.

For a visual approach to assessing the impact of SEZs in China, I really like these images from Shanghai showing the transformation over the last 20 years as a result of the Shanghai-Pudong SEZ.
