Export processing zones as catalysts

Johansson, Helena LU and Nilsson, Lars (1997) In World Development 25(12). p.2115-2128
Abstract
A potentially important indirect effect of export processing zones (EPZs) is the catalyst effect. The foreign affiliates attracted to the EPZs could stimulate local firms to begin to export by showing them how to produce, market, sell and distribute manufactured goods on the world market. Our results indicate a significant catalyst effect in Malaysia.
