7 Components to a world-class economic zone program
A growing number of SEZs are competing for businesses in a world that is constantly disrupted by major political and economic challenges including new demands in Industry 4.0, innovation and sustainability. The future of SEZ is promising, but only the most innovative, forward-looking and resilient SEZs will successfully reap the benefits of these emerging trends. Through our integrated services we are able to support SEZs to make the next steps in their development and position them to be more resilient for the future and more competitive to attract more investment and trade they require.
NXT ZONE PROGRAM AND SERVICES
Feasibility & Competitive Analyses
Ensure the SEZ strategy is based on strategic planning, which requires realistic assessments, global and regional benchmarking and analyses of strengths, weaknesses, market demand, local comparative advantages, local sources of competitiveness, and opportunities that collectively constitute the local value proposition.
Strategy & Organizational Development
We have been engaged to support the development of SEZ organizations and agencies responsible for investment promotion and attraction, from defining the vision and mission to implementing monitoring and evaluation mechanisms as well as building organizations that manage SEZ.
Conducting an in-depth cost-benefit analysis is a necessary pre-requisite to evaluate the SEZ’s performance and demonstrate how taxpayers’ money has been used to realize economic development.
Master planning & Real Estate Planning
A solid master plan is the foundation of any SEZ or industrial park. A good master plan also takes into account sustainable infrastructure and the investors’ real estate preferences of companies a SEZ would like to attract and the industry in which they operate.
Legislative & (Tax) Incentives Services
Support on whether SEZ Laws provide clarity for investors and improving and aligning incentive regimes with investors’ needs and requirements.
Marketing Strategy Development
Assist with developing image building strategies and the promotion of the local value proposition by ensuring marketing and promotion efforts are targeted, timely, professionalized, up-to-date and responding to current social media requirements. Many SEZs need a tailored marketing strategy and tactical execution elements ranging from logo and brand development and digital marketing to tradeshow support, lead generation, and staff training solutions that can successfully position a free zone among potential investors abroad.
Investor Attraction & Lead Generation Services

Our lead generation services are delivered with a partner firm. These services aim to successfully attract investors to a SEZ.
