Jordan's Free Zone builds competitiveness with CRM Technologies
As part of its long-term plan to attract more than six billion dollars of foreign direct investments into the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority (ASEZ), the authority has announced the rollout of Jordan's first e-government, web-enabled investors support system using ACCPAC technologies.
The system, using ACCPAC eCRM, is what the authority considers a “systematic and sustainable approach to attract foreign direct investment,” as explained by ASEZA's director for business development and marketing, Louay Khatib. The first phase of the development program of ASEZA is based on providing an infrastructure, advanced enough to compete with regional players and attract foreign capital into the Special Economic Zone area.
In August 2000, the ASEZA Law was passed by Parliament. The law established ASEZA as the statutory institution empowered with regulatory, administrative, fiscal and economic responsibilities within ASEZ. ASEZA is a financially and administratively independent authority, acting as the legal heir of both the Aqaba Regional Authority and the Aqaba Municipality. — (menareport.com)
