Author Info

  • Larry Willmore

    (International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis)

Abstract

The author reviews case studies of four Caribbean countries-the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Saint Lucia and Trinidad-and briefly discusses an African country, Mauritius. He compares labour legislation, nationality of investors, technology transfer, and linkages with the rest of the economy. Of these five cases, only Trinidad failed to develop a significant export processing sector. Explanations rooted in government policy are suggested for this result. United Nations ECLAC Working Paper No. 42 (September 1996).
