Industrial Parks

Industrial Parks and Free Trade Zones

Haiti has embraced the development of government- and privately-owned industrial parks and free trade zones as a means of enabling enterprises to realize bottom-line benefits through investment in the country. Businesses located in these parks and zones can optimize operational costs by taking advantage of various benefits, including expedited customs clearance, reduced transportation costs when zones and parks are proximate to ports and airports, cheaper and more reliable access to energy and water services, the availability of standard factory buildings for sale or lease, and access to storage and warehouse facilities. The specialized legal frameworks that apply in free trade zones and the business services available in a number of the parks and zones further streamline the processes for establishing and operating businesses in Haiti.
