Export Processing Zones

Export Processing Zones

Export processing zones (EPZs) are designated parts of Kenya that are aimed at promoting and facilitating export oriented investments and to develop an enabling environment for such investments. Currently there are over 40 gazetted zones in Nairobi, Voi, Athi River, Kerio Valley, Mombasa and Kilifi in various stages of development by both private and public zone developer/operators. These zones are managed and promoted by the Export Processing zones Authority.



EPZ’s provide an attractive investment investment opportunity for export-oriented business ventures. There are no restrictions on who can invest in such zones. An EPZ firm may be 100% foreign owned, 100% Kenyan owned or any combination of foreign/Kenyan ownership. The Enterprise is also allowed to bring in foreign workers for training, technical and managerial categories. The scheme also offers a wide range of attractive fiscal, physical and procedures incentives to ensure lower cost operations, faster set up and smoother operations.
