Duty free on a national scale. Special economic zones

Special economic zones are centres of dynamic economic growth for metropolitan areas which attract large investments, create new jobs and fulfill a number of strategic goals central to state development. But in order to attract and support global investors at all levels it is necessary to set up efficient cooperation between federal, regional and local authorities. A lack of dialogue between them may lead to unapproved actions, which hinder the implementation of major investment projects. ● What means exist to solve such problems when launching Special Economic Zones in Russia and abroad? ● What conditions are necessary to attract large, medium and small business to SEZs? ● What legislative and administrative bases are necessary to ensure the most efficient possible work of such zones? ● What SEZ toolkit is necessary to cultivate an effective ecosystem?
