Chittagong Export Processing Zone (CEPZ), also known as Chittagong EPZ, is the first and one of the eight export processing zones in Bangladesh located at South Halishahar in Chittagong.[1] It was established in 1983 following an Act of Parliament approved in 1980 by the Government of Bangladesh.[2] In 2010, CEPZ was ranked third in the best cost-competitiveness category and fourth as the best economic potential in the global ranking in a survey among the world's 700 economic zones carried out by FDi magazine.[3]
