  2. 2. History of SEZ• India was one of the first in Asia to recognize the effectiveness of the Export Processing Zone (EPZ) model in promoting exports, with Asias first EPZ set up in Kandla in 1965.• With the same intentions and view to attract larger foreign investments in India, the Special Economic Zones (SEZs) Policy was announced in April 2000.
  3. 3. SEZ ?• A Special Economic Zone is a geographically bound zones where the economic laws in matters related to export and import are more broadminded and liberal as compared to rest parts of the country. SEZs are projected as duty free area for the purpose of trade, operations, duty and tariffs. SEZ units are self- contained and integrated having their own infrastructure and support services
  4. 4. OBJECTIVE of the SEZ Act Generation of additional economic activity Promotion of exports of goods and services Promotion of investment from domestic and foreign sources Creation of employment opportunities Development of infrastructure facilities
  5. 5.

  7. 7. Strengths• Relatively low labour costs• Worldwide acceptance of capabilities in fields like:1. Pharmaceutical manufacturing & research2. Clinical trials3. Manufacturing auto parts4. Engineering designing & consultancy, IT5. Entertainment
  8. 8. Weaknesses • Inadequate institutional support • Labour reforms • Inappropriate locations • Infrastructure bottlenecks – connecting infrastructure like Roads leading to SEZs. • Political changes
  9. 9. Opportunities• To use SEZs to catalyze infrastructure development.• New small ports & airports are also being developed keeping SEZ concept in mind.• Realistically establish competitive advantages in SEZs.
  10. 10. • A large NRI base who have traditionally invested less in Greenfield development in India.• Lower the high transaction /behind the border costs to exporters.• Tap the advantages of WTO/increase India’s small share of world trade.
