oa Comparative and International Law Journal of Southern Africa - The free-trade-zone programmes of Namibia and Mauritius and the latest developments in Europe: lessons for South Africa

Volume 32, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0010-4051

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.
