Summary
Special economic zones (SEZs) have become a permanent feature of the world trade scene. This book, provides a critical analysis of SEZs covering different countries and regions. It is the product of the Asia FDI Forum IV held in Hong Kong in 2018. The contributions review the issues raised by SEZs in the context of international trade law, international investment law and investment arbitration and address the following issues: investment protection in China's SEZs; state-owned enterprises regulation; dispute settlement; under what circumstances incentives available in SEZs count as export subsidies prohibited under World Trade Organization (WTO) rules; compliance with internal market rules in European Union (EU) free zones; local populations as victims of land expropriation; Brazil's Manaus Free Trade Zone; India's experience with multiple SEZs; the administrative approval system in the Shanghai Free Trade Zone; economic corridors and transit routes as SEZs; refugee cities': SEZs for migrants; how China's Supreme People's Court serves national strategy; how foreign investors challenge free-zone regimes; impacts of the establishment of SEZs on tax revenues; SEZs and labour migration; and management models. The chapters also include insights into the new emerging generation of international investment agreements; WTO accession, transparency, and case law materials clarifying specific trade issues associated with SEZs; and new rules to protect the environment and labour rights, as well as analysis of crucially significant cases such as Goetz v. The Republic of Burundi, Lee Jong Baek v. Kyrgyzstan and Ampal-American and Others v. Egypt
