Free Trade Warehouse Zones
Free Trade Warehouse Zones (FTWZ) is a category of Special Economic Zone (SEZ) with clear focus on Trading and Warehousing governed by the SEZ Act and Rules. The Zones are notified and are under the Ministry of Commerce, with the whole idea of making India as an International Trading Hub.
