Enhancing the Contribution of Export Processing Zones to SDG 8 on Decent Work and Inclusive Economic Growth: A review of 100 zones

This study examines the extent to which EPZs explicitly use labour policy and practices as marketing tools, or refer to such policies and practices in their communications with outside stakeholders. The findings suggest that most EPZs are not currently promoting labour policy and practice as part of their public communications as a strategy to attract potential investors, despite the growing pressure on companies to respect core labour rights, including in global supply chains.
