Special Economic Zones

Based on the experience of Mauritius in the successful establishment of the Export Processing Zone (EPZ) in the 1970’s and the creation of the Freeport in 1992, several countries have solicited the assistance of the Government to develop free zone models in their respective countries.

The Economic Development Board is responsible to promote jointly with the Mauritius Africa Fund (MAF) the Special Economic Zones (SEZs) with selected countries and economic operators.
