Free Trade Zones/Warehouses
The designation and administration of Free Trade Zones (FTZ)
in Trinidad and Tobago was authorized by law in 1988. The first FTZ was
established in the Point Lisas Industrial Estate. Other free trade zones are
being considered. Any enterprise may apply for individual free zone designation
upon establishment of proper security fencing and facilities. Local food
processing companies, a tire manufacturer, and an iron-carbide plant have taken
advantage of the FTZ opportunity.
