What is the World FZO and what is its role?
The World FZO is a not-for-profit body that provides one authoritative, collective voice representing the interests of free zones around the world. The organization was established in the Canton of Geneva, Switzerland, and is headquartered in Dubai UAE.
When was World FZO launched?
The World FZO was officially launched in Dubai, UAE, on May 19, 2014.
Why is there a need for such an organization?
The growth of the free zones in recent decades now requires a global organization to take stock of this important economic phenomenon and to lead on the progress of free zone expansion and development. The World FZO is the first organization that will bring together these diverse free zones to promote the exchange of views, best practice, experience and knowledge and ensure the sustainability and ongoing success of the free zone model.
