AFZO was created to enhance and sustain relationships between African free zones and government institutions. This union of African free zones will facilitate cooperation to achieve strategic objectives and will contribute on the socio-economic development of AFZO members.

AFZO has built a strong team to work for the growth of the organization and to develop more services for members and partners.

AFZO aims to create solid connections between free zones authorities, companies, consultants and government organizations through sharing experiences and knowledge in order to establish the most effective models and strategies for Free Zones in Africa.

AFZO provides an interactive platform and networking tools for African free zones to develop B2B business partnership opportunities and share the best practices in free zones framework and governance.

Since its creation, AFZO has developed strong relationships and a decent database of free zones partners in Africa and around the world. Free zones partners in AFZO database receive newsletters and the events calendar periodically.

Workshops and webinars are organised frequently to discuss innovations, logistic services, international and regional legal framework, and solutions for efficiency in free zones.

AFZO has developed a smart tool named “Free Zones Atlas” where African free zones data can be consulted. This tool provides up to date informations about African free zones development. The members contribute on the development of “Free Zones Atlas” by updating their country data and providing the latest free zones ongoing and completed projects and available documents.

AFZO members benefits access to the exchange platform, support services, scheduled workshops and webinars videos.
