The Free Zones Team

Free Zones Team

The Dominican Republic Free Zones are represented by two separate organizations; a public sector organization, the National Free Zones Council of the Dominican Republic (CNFZE), and a private not-for-profit company, the Dominican Association of Free Zones (ADOZONA). These two groups work together with the same goal in mind, to promote the Dominican Republic as a prime location for business and to attract global investment to the Free Zones.
