Zanzibar is committed to developing a modern manufacturing industry with backward and forward linkages. The Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar (RGZ) is encouraging light manufacturing through putting in place attractive incentives for industrial projects. -

Free Economic Zones have been purposely established to attract private investment, with the Business Environment Improvement Programme providing a strong roadmap. Zanzibar passed a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Act in 2015, creating a framework for attracting private capital to develop, operate and maintain essential infrastructure and services. Furthermore, RGZ has strengthened Zanzibar Bureau of Standards as a way of ensuring quality of products and services.
