A recent survey suggests that Cambodia, Myanmar and Thailand have also established SEZs and are offering greater incentives.
Thailand, for instance, is creating 10 special economic zones, many of which are located along its border with Laos, according to the survey, which was carried out by the National Economic Research Institute (NERI).
