Free Trade Zones (FTZs)

Free Trade Zones (FTZs) are options which you definitely can’t afford to overlook. FTZs are special economic zones where goods may be imported, handled, manufactured and exported free from customs controls. Each FTZ in China adopts its own unique industrial and economic focus, and present different incentives and regulatory levels in order to fulfil broader objectives.

China’s Ministry of Commerce reports that in 2021 alone, 21 FTZs contributed 17.3% of China’s total foreign trade and 18.5% of China’s foreign investment. In 2021, the Ministry of Commerce also highlights the key role that FTZs play in China’s opening-up in the form of sophisticated regional platforms.

What benefits can international businesses enjoy through China’s FTZs? What are some of the challenges coming along? Which FTZs would be the right choice for your business?
