From Mark Lutter — charter city for Zambia?

Summary:
I’m pleased to announce the Charter Cities Institute has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Zambian Development Agency. They are planning to propose changes to their special economic zone act to parliament, and we are working with them to improve their proposal and make it adhere closer to charter city best practices, namely, larger size, mixed use developments, deeper reforms, and local autonomy. The memorandum of understanding is an important step in piloting charter cities. We are proud to partner with the Zambia Development Agency and Nkwashi in bringing charter cities to reality. Mark, along with Tamara Winter, was part of the first cohort of EV winners. The post From Mark Lutter — charter city for Zambia? appeared first on Marginal REVOLUTION.
