OVERVIEW

​​​​​map overview.jpg​​​​​​​​The Suez Canal Special Economic Zone (SCZone) is a w​​​orld-class free zone and trade hub along the banks of the newly-expanded Suez Canal. Strategically located on the main trade route between Europe and South Asia, more than eight percent of global trade passes through every year.

Spanning 461 km2, almost two-thirds the size of Singapore, the SCZone has four unique zones and six strategically-located ports.

The four zones are:

  • Ain Sokhna
  • East Port Said
  • Qantara West
  • East Ismailia

Each zone provides opportunities in industrial and commercial enterprises, infrastructure and real estate development, logistics, amenities and state-of-the-art technology.

The six ports are:

  • East Port Said Port
  • West Port Said Port
  • Ain Sokhna Port
  • Adabiya Port
  • Al Tor Port
  • Al Arish Port

Planned expansions will increase the capacity for handling maritime traffic and for offering related services such as ship building, stevedoring, bunkering, vessel scrapping and recycling.

All SCZone investors are assisted from start to finish through a one-stop shop to streamline registration, licensing and permits for new businesses.​
