Free Trade Zones
The Law on Industrial Estates and Industrial Free Zones was enacted in November 1997. The law designates certain area free zones to facilitate the establishment of regional and international export centers. An Industrial Estate and Industrial Free Zone Authority was established to oversee such development. This is an independent and autonomous body overseeing the implementation of the estates and free zones, and creates an enabling and regulatory framework for the success of their operations. A private-sector developer is developing the infrastructure. All the Investment Law advantages pass to investors investing in the industrial zones.
