Work on the first investment projects approved for the Mariel Special Development Zone (ZEDM) will begin within the next few months, reported Ana Teresa Igarza Martínez, general director of the ZEDM support office, adding that enterprises beginning operations will be involved in food processing, light industry, construction and renewable energy.

Igarza Martínez indicated that businesses from some 30 countries have made proposals, although most are coming from Spain, Italy, China, Russia, France, Vietnam, Brazil, Mexico, Holland and Canada.

During a November 4 forum focused on the Zone, descriptions were presented of 25 projects included in the country’s portfolio of opportunities for foreign investors, which would be undertaken in the Special Development Zone. Prioritized are the steel, chemical and electronic industries, along with biotechnology and pharmaceuticals.
