The Special Economic Zone Act, enacted in 1995, defines a special economic zone or econzones as “selected areas with highly developed or which have the potential to be developed into agro-industrial, industrial, tourist/recreational, commercial, banking, investment and financial centers.”

The same law provides that an ecozone may contain any or all of the following: industrial estates, export processing zones, free trade zones, and tourist/recreational centers.

In addition, the same law grants fiscal incentives, tax credits and tax exemptions to businesses located within ecozones which include remitting five percent of the gross income earned by all businesses and enterprises within the ecozone to the national government in lieu of paying taxes, both local and national.

Goods manufactured by an ecozone enterprise, on the other hand, will be “made available for immediate retail sales in the domestic market, subject to payment of corresponding taxes on the raw materials and other regulations that may be adopted by the Board of the Philippine Economic Zone Authority.”
