The Dominican Republic Free Zones are a network of 74 free zones scattered throughout the country, with the purpose of attracting foreign direct investment and spurring growth in the Dominican economy. Since 1969, the Free Zones regime has been growing strong and in 2019 we celebrate 50 years of business! To date, the zones are home to over 700 international businesses and support more than 170,000 local jobs. The most attractive features for companies looking to expand or relocate to the zones include the economic and political stability of the country, special tax incentives, and the island’s global connectivity.
The Dominican Republic Free Zones are represented by two separate organizations, The National Free Zone Council (CNFZE) and The Dominican Association of Free Zones (ADOZONA). Both entities work together to advocate for the zones, as well as the companies within them, and to promote the zones on an international stage.
