This article analyses the latest trends in Namibia, Mauritius and Europe, as regards the development and future of free trade zone programmes. Thus, it is intended to hopefully further stimulate the (locally indeed controversial) debate as to whether South Africa should consider foreign experiences and take up the gauntlet and establish a free trade zone programme. Free trade zones can indeed contribute to domestic economic growth, and thereby help alleviate South Africa's dramatic unemployment rates, as well as enhance foreign commerce, generate additional foreign exchange and attract foreign investment.
