Narrative description of Project:

Almost all ASEAN countries as well as China have successfully utilized Economic Zone (EZ) programs in the past 30 years for attracting foreign direct investments (FDI) and domestic investors (DI) which contribute greatly to the economic development of each country. Bangladesh implemented Export Processing Zone (EPZ) program in 8 locations since 1984 and yet the program has not brought many remarkable impacts on the localization of industries and backward linkage in productions, except the success in attracting FDI into the ready-made garment (RMG) sector. Recognizing the limited performance of the past EPZ program, Bangladesh Government has reformed the program into Economic Zone Program (EZP) by providing a stronghold to Bangladesh Economic Zone Authority (BEZA) in 2010 with the consolidated Economic Zone Act. 

The Client intends to develop an EZ most practically and attractively for international and local investors and to now consider the detailed design work for the proposed EZ project in Sirajganj.
