Special Economic Zones: Linking Africa to Regional and Global Supply Chains
Date & Time
Wednesday, May 8, 2024, 1:45 PM - 3:00 PM
Zainab Usman Okechukwu Ihejirika Ahmed Bennis Hon. Doris Uzoka-Anite

Although Africa was a relatively late adopter of Special Economic Zones, it is now the continent with the most rapidly growing adoption of SEZs.  With more than 240 SEZs in 47 of 54 countries, they are expected to be important drivers of industrialization in Africa, as well as key beneficiaries of the African Continental Free Trade Zone.  As SEZs attract more investment from African and international companies, it is critical that they develop the right policies for sustained growth, while also contributing to the development of national and regional economies.  This panel will hear from SEZ managers, government officials and investors as they talk through how best they can develop their potential and boost broader economic growth.
