- This paper tries to point out several geographical implications regarding idea and locational selection of the TRAD. A designated area is geographically an unique and a remote area from major urban area and industrial development (Fig. 1). Also major strategy of the TRAD intends to employ a model of Export Processing Zone (EPZ)/Special Economic Zone (SEZ) as a vehicle for regional development. Concerning the selections of the area and main strategic idea, a few geographical and policy implications could be driven from recent studies of EPZ's structural evolution and field trip observation. Major questions concerning this TRAD project is whether this project is locationally feasible in terms of selection of zone. In operational sense, major concerns are whether allocation of EPZ or SEZ is suitable for this region in operation.
