The statements were published by Cubadebate, which pointed out that, during more than two years of Covid-19, the Zone has kept the vitality of its activities.
Such reports were timely provided by the directors of that strategic zone. In times when Cuba’s economy was practically paralyzed, 15 new users started their production and service operations and eight others decided to expand their investments in the zone, they stressed.
At the same time, infrastructure development continued and ongoing investment processes were concluded.
An essential step for new companies to settle in this zone, and for others to expand, is to prepare the grounds.
According to Orlando Garcia, general director of the Office of Land Use and Urban Planning Management, 81.34 percent of all 465.4 square kilometers (km²) that make up the Mariel Special Development Zone have been studied to date, and the preferential land uses of the nine sectors that make up the zone, from A to I, have been identified.
The Zone has a developable area of 213.58 km² (equivalent to 56.37 percent), that is, land that can be conditioned and prepared for urban use, on which work is already underway.
