What’s the SEZ

The Special Economic Zone (SEZ) is a geographically delimited and clearly identified area that includes at least a port or airport area, connected to the trans-European transport network (TEN-T), and other functionally connected areas. The SEZ aims to create favorable conditions in economic, financial and administrative terms, which allow the development of companies already operating, as well as the establishment of new companies.

The ZES Calabria was established under Prime Ministerial Decree 11/05/2018 and identified with Regional Council Decree n. 100 on 29/03/2018, which has approved the Strategic Development Plan.

To learn about the main characteristics of the SEZ Calabria, you should click on the map on the side and refer the sheets.

The cartographic elaborations were produced by the CCR, which is the Regional Cartographic Center. They did this by using CTR's data which was updated until 2008, as well as the cadastral base which was updated to 2011.

The information on environmental constraints were extracted from the Calabria Region Geoportal, from the website of the District Basin Authority of the Southern Apennines and from the Geoportal of the Calabria Region AOU Mountain, Forests and Forestry Policies, Soil Conservation.
