Our objective is to further free zones around the world and help them develop, especially, in emerging countries and countries in transition.
Our federation is a non-governmental organisation working on a non-profit basis. It was constituted in Switzerland under the laws of the canton of Geneva, its statutes and article 60 as well as the relevant clauses of the civil code.
