Special Economic Zone for South of Italy

A fundamental means of territorial promotion for entrepreneurs to seize location opportunities

Starting from of January 1, 2024, the SEZ concerns all the South of Italy as established by Decree-Law No. 124 of September 19, 2023 – converted in law No. 162 in November 13, 2023 .

The so called “Single SEZ” includes the regions of Abruzzo, Basilicata, Calabria, Campania, Molise, Apulia, Sicily, Sardinia and replaces the previous 8 Special Economic Zones related to the same territories .

Why invest in the “Single SEZ”

Companies already operating and those setting up in the territories included within the “Single SEZ” can benefit from special economic and financial conditions as well as simplified administrative procedures.

Easy governance

A Steering Committee and Mission Structure for the “Single SEZ” is established at the Prime Minister’s Office.

Easy bureaucracy

Investment programs enjoy a simplified and expedited administrative path thanks to reduced procedural deadlines, a single authorization and the dedicated SEZ Desk.  As of March 1, 2024, the digital one-stop shop for productive activities in the Single SEZ, called S.U.D. ZES, is established, in which the digital one-stop shops of the 8 Special Single Zones converge. The counter is integrated into the platform www.impresainungiorno.gov.it
