About the Event

In this webinar organized by Policy & Program Learning (PPL) at CIPE, Tiffany Qiu of Oxbridge Economics will present findings from her paper, ”Do Free Trade Zones Stimulate Entrepreneurship? New Evidence from China. We will discuss the business environment factors and policy choices that may facilitate or impede business formation in FTZs and whether these insights may be applicable in other countries and regions. Though the webinar will be beneficial to anyone interested in how trade policy incentives interact with entrepreneurship in emerging markets, the research is especially useful for organizations such as business associations, chambers of commerce, advocacy groups, and firms interested to learn about key advantages and disadvantages of using FTZs as a space for starting a business or testing innovative ideas.
