According to the IDB, the GdM is promoting the creation of Special Economic Zones (ZEE) to facilitate the creation of new developing poles of industrial development. "The ZEE Federal Law (promulgated in 2016) contemplates the hiring of an integral administrator that will perform as a developer-operator in the Zone, and in that case it will have under its charge the construction, development, administration and maintenance of the infrastructure works of the zone, as well as any related services. In this context, this technical cooperation has the general objective to support the strengthen of the GdM on its analytical capabilities, design and implementation of the ZEE. The specific objectives are: (i) support the installation of an integral administrator for the ZEE and the definition of a resources receptor mechanism for the ZEE development; (ii) support the identification and priorization of investment of transport infrastructure and logistic, deepening the ZEE knowledge on its productive vocation, opportunity areas for the strengthening of production chain and state of transport infrastructure and logistic; (iii) and contribute to the coordination and the inter and intra institutional dialogue at a national level that facilitate the implementation of the ZEE."

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
