This paper aims to investigate the impact of Special Economic Zones within a specific system-based economy, and variations in both individual sectoral specializations and those of the local labour market. There are six Special Economic Zones geographically located within the Tanger-Tétouan-Al Hoceima region in northern Morocco; each zone is centred on specialised production and strictly related to Tanger MED Port Complex, 1 and 2.

Abstract

This paper aims to investigate the impact of Special Economic Zones within a specific system-based economy, and variations in both individual sectoral specializations and those of the local labour market. There are six Special Economic Zones geographically located within the Tanger-Tétouan-Al Hoceima region in northern Morocco; each zone is centred on specialised production and strictly related to Tanger MED Port Complex, 1 and 2. At the present, they are among the most influential hubs of the Mediterranean and a crucial element of Morocco’s economic and commercial development strategy. The aim of this paper is to demonstrate how the presence of regional SEZs has positively impacted the increase in national FDEs and the increase in company localisations in the area under study. This research is to be credited equally to both authors, for it is the result of their joint work.
