Advisor on Commerce and Investment, Abdul Razak Dawood says the government is prioritizing development of Special Economic Zones for attracting Foreign Direct Investment and transfer of technology into the country.

Talking to APP, he said the Special Economic Zones are primarily focused on industrialization that result in export promotion, import substitution, transfer of technologies and employment generation, which are the primary targets of incumbent government.

Talking about the criteria, the Advisor said only those economic zones are given the special status which are successful in export generation and import substitution.
