An overview of large scale investments in the Mekong

This paper presents an overview of large scale investments trends in the Mekong region, the regulatory and policy changes designed to facilitate large-scale foreign and domestic investments, and the impact of such investment in Special Economic Zones (SEZs), especially on the living and working conditions of workers in these SEZs. The paper offers a critical perspective on the scale and range of large-scale investments in the region and how these investments privilege large investors over local populations and public interest.
