The ZEDM is the main attraction that Cuba provides for foreign investment and at the same time the current bet of the island for promoting its economic advancement, replacing imports, increasing exports, creating jobs and gaining access to modern technologies.

With 465.4 square kilometers, the first free trade industrial region in Cuba is designed to encourage foreign capital investment, technological innovation and industrial concentration for economic and social development.
