Arua SEZ Ltd was incorporated to develop and operate a Free Zone in Arua Municipality-West Nile region of Uganda. It will provide dedicated infrastructure to attract Greenfield Foreign Direct Investment [FDI] and Domestic Direct Investment to job creating export oriented enterprises that will operate in the Free Zone.

The Free Zone is best suited to be located in Arua because of its proximity to the Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan, both major export destinations for goods originating from Uganda. They are also sources of unique base metals and timber that are highly sought after in the international market, thus presenting an opportunity for bi-directional flow of Trade to and from these countries. In an organized manner that is sensitive to the environment and the need to stop illicit trade.

The project will be anchored on Ware houses to facilitate the activities of; labeling, packing and repacking, sorting, grading, cleaning and mixing (agro processing) and breaking of bulk.

Arua SEZ Ltd seeks to establish a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in Arua, Uganda with the aim of accelerating growth of small exporting enterprises (not start-ups), through provision of appropriate infrastructure and business support services(market linkage, supply chain and customs facilitation). Arua SEZ will provide custom built facilities such as; warehouses, agro processing zone with a focus on fish processing, office block (canteen, trade service providers and virtual offices to provide administrative services to the operators in the Zone) and industrial real estate units.

Having identified the need and the strategic location that Arua town presents, we have no doubt that the free zone area will be of great benefit to Uganda, the West Nile region and specifically create employment for people around it while also offering an attractive return for the investors/promoters.

With hindsight of the above, Arua SEZ Ltd would like to develop and operate a free zone in Arua in which they will construct a total of 17 (seventeen) warehouses (that have all necessary facilities within the zone), and office space that shall accelerate business within this region and in return collect rental and management fees.

When set up, the Free zone will not only boost regional trade and export but could also offer other business advantages to factories located in the zone such as; 10 year income tax rebate, zero customs duties, and business friendly regulatory requirements for registration of business and focused priority trade facilitation to increase trade efficiency – which will make the zone attractive to manufacturing SME’s, export companies oriented companies and multinationals targeting the DRC and South Sudan Markets.
