Thanks to vast investment privileges, economic incentives and its crucial role in national industrial development, Lamerd special economic zone on the southern part of Fars Province is a real investment heaven.

Rich mining resources, vast mineral substances, newly explored sweet gas in Tabnak region, Shanol, Homa & Varavy, being in vicinity of the country’s energy zone, cement factory and other important factors such as expert labor force, native inhabitants’ positive attitude on investment, easy access to transportation roads and design & procurement of required infrastructure would convince each and every cost/benefit expert investor to participate in the most profitable and risk free economic activity in the zone for settlement and development of industrial facilities.

The vast diversity of provisioned industries in Lamerd Special Economic Zone indicates the fact that through settlement of industries and due to alignment of a variety of activities, the cost of project execution would stay at an acceptable level and this land of production and export would become a paradise for local and foreign investors.
