November 2005

This is a well-documented and up-to-date report by the Finnish NGO and union network FinnWatch on the present incentive packages, including Special Economic Zones (SEZ), for foreign investment in India.

The report gives information on how these incentives lead to undermining and non-implementation of labour and environmental laws. In addition it focusses on how Finnish companies like Nokia, Kone and Elcoteq are making use of these incentives'.
