Textile Park which offers duty & quota free access to US

The Ad-dulayl Industrial Park is a textile and apparel park which has been set up under the 'Qualified Industrial Zones' act of the US government and which provides duty and quota free access for any product manufactured in the zone for exports to the US.

Amongst the many benefits available for goods produced in the QIZ are assured duty and tariff free access to the US market, no quotas on export to U.S. market, total income and social tax exemption, no custom duty on imported materials, no restriction on project ownership and on foreign currency transactions.

Fibre2fashion spoke to Mr George Jack Khayyat, General Manager of the Ad-dulayl Industrial Park to learn more about this unique concept which has the potential to attract not only Jordanian investors, but also textile and garment companies from across the globe which may want to increase their market share in the US markets.

We first asked Mr Khayyat to share details of the various facilities at the park with us, to which he said, “Ad-dulayl Industrial Park is a public share holding company, that owns and operates an Industrial Park that has a state of the art infrastructure, including a custom office, labour office, clearance companies, civil defense, police station, supermarkets and many other facilities”.

He continued by saying, “We provide ready made buildings for factories either on rent or outright purchase. Investors in our park come from different countries including India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Turkey, China, UK, and USA. The Park Management provides full services to the investors in the Park”.

Our next question was to know the incentives available to the textile investors, to which he replied by saying, “Investors in the Park enjoy a lot of benefits including exports, free of income tax, zero customs duty on imports of equipments and machinery, full repatriation of profits and lots of other government benefits”.

“The most important factor that encourages foreign investors to establish their textile factories in Jordan is the bilateral agreement between Jordan and USA, where goods produced in our park and similar parks in Jordan enjoy free duties entry to USA and there also exists a similar bilateral agreement between Jordan and Canada”, he concluded by saying.

We next asked him his opinion of the global textile scenario to which he said, “Fortunately not a single factory was closed in our Park in spite of the present economical crisis in USA. We believe that the present situation demand factories to be more efficient and produce high volumes in order to remain competitive”.

To conclude the interview we asked Mr Khayyat to share with us the strengths & areas of improvements in Jordan's textiles industry, to which he said, “Jordan enjoys a competitive edge in the textile industry as all goods manufactured in Jordan enter the USA market and eventually Canada without duties. This has a big effect on textiles made from man-made fibres, where the duties in the US for such products are quite high, even exceeding 30 percent”.
