The Bangladesh Export Processing Zone Authority (BEPZA)
is an agency of the Government of Bangladesh
. Its objective is to manage the various export processing zones in Bangladesh. BEPZA currently oversees the operations of five export processing zones (EPZ). A sixth zone is scheduled to open in the future.
The Government provides numerous incentives for investors for opening factories in EPZs. For example, new factories enjoy tax holidays for 5 years. Also, labour unions and other activities that are often viewed detrimental to productivity, are banned inside the EPZs.
