Development Issues of Free Economic Zones


The article outlines the theoretical basis for the need for free economic zones, as the most important factor in the country's socioeconomic growth, and their attractiveness and evaluation criteria. In turn, this requires that each region locates and develops productive forces based on its mineral and resource wealth. The author emphasizes the strengthening of the policy of diversification of small business and private entrepreneurship, an increase in export potential and the current state of the economy in the regions.
