Dear ANDEV Colleagues,
One of ANDEV’s founding members Ron Manners has sent me this article on Special Economic Zones. It is worth a read and there are links in the article to further interesting information. Ron is Managing Director of Mannwest Group. He is also Emeritus Chairman of the Australian Mining Hall of Fame Ltd and a Fellow of both the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, and the Australian Institute of Company Directors. His contributions to industry and Australia have been marked by several awards including being elected as a Mining Legend at the 2005 Excellence in Mining and Exploration Conference in Sydney. In 2010 Ron was appointed to the Board of Overseers for the Atlas Economic Research Foundation, Washington, DC.
China continues to drive its economic growth by creating innovative SEZ’s. Eastern European countries like Macedonia have set up SEZ’s and attracted international companies that have brought investment and jobs. Australian politicians refuse to accept this successful economic development policy.
