The entire economic zone is being developed in partnership between the state government and the third party, and we have located the airport as one of the Enablars of it own. Part of the requirements that we signed with our partner was that this economic zone will be Free Trade Zone.

“It allows all the processing companies all over the world who have already signed to process in that zone to process the raw materials that will be brought from all over the state and the zone. They can export them to other parts of the continent.
