Free trade warehousing zones

Free Trade Warehousing Zones (FTWZs) are deemed foreign territories / ports / warehouses for storage and other value-added activities under the customs law.  FTWZ units are allowed to hold inventory on behalf of foreign suppliers / domestic buyers. FTWZ law allows multiple transfers of ownership transactions without removal of the goods from the FTWZ, thus ensuring the trading chain to be as close as possible and as may be required, and ensuring that there is no cascade of indirect taxes / compliance, and avoids increases in transaction costs.
