The Development & Free Zones Commission

About DFZC

In a quest to ensure a qualitative leap in the sustainable development of Jordan, a timely ambitious initiative led by His Majesty King Abdullah II was launched, creating Development Zones across the kingdom that provide investors with a globally competitive combination of location, infrastructure, services and labor, all located strategically to access major regional and global markets.

The Development & Free Zones Commission (DFZC) is the financially and administratively autonomous entity responsible for creating, regulating, facilitating and monitoring the Development Zones in Jordan. Established in 2008, the DZC aims at increasing investment into the Kingdom, empowering the private sector to lead in the Zones, development and management, stimulating the economic growth and enhancing local living standards.

As the only point of contact for investors, DFZC carries out the Development & Free Zones Law mandates through it’s One Stop Shop that expedites business entry and operations, offering highly efficient, streamlined services and transparent implementation, coupled with a number of investment incentive and tax & customs exemptions.

DFZC’s vision is directed and supervised by a Board of Commissioners and supported by a highly qualified team that works in partnership with Master Developers, charged with managing the building, development and operation of the Development Zones. To date, six Development Zones have been created in Mafraq, Irbid, Ma’an, Dead Sea, Jabal Ajloun and Dabouq in the heart of the capital Amman.
