CAVITE ECONOMIC ZONE
(Formerly Cavite Export Processing Zone)
Rosario, Cavite, Philippines

The Cavite Export Processing Zone was created by virtue of Presidential Proclamation Nos. 1980 and 2017 issued on May 30 and September 19, 1980 respectively. It later evolved into the Cavite Economic Zone when former Philippine President Fidel V. Ramos signed into law the Special Economic Zone Act of 1995 on February 24, 1992.

With an area of 276 hectares, this once agricultural land has blossomed into a highly industrialized region. Located approximately 30 kilometers from Manila, this Zone although almost fully occupied remains on top of any investor's list of viable location for an enterprise.

As of December, 1999, there are 220 actively operating companies. These companies employ a total of 62,000 Management and Production workers. Aside from this, an estimated 4,500 others are employed by brokers, banks, security agencies, canteens, sub-contractors and other offices doing business inside the Zone.

Over a period of three years, the Cavite Economic Zone has an average Net Trade balance of US$ 246 million.
