Foreign Trade Zone

Triangle J Council of Governments is the grantee of the Research Triangle Area's full-service, multi-site Foreign Trade Zone #93 which allows companies importing and exporting products to reduce or delay custom duties or taxes on products received within the zone. All zone activities must result in public benefit and a net positive economic effect. TJCOG views the FTZ as a benefit to member organizations through its ability to stimulate international trade in the region, create jobs engaged in international trade, and encourage job creation in the larger market. 

FTZ #93 serves the Research Triangle region across 15 counties - Chatham, Durham, Franklin, Granville, Harnett, Johnston, Lee, Moore, Orange, Person, Sampson, Vance, Wake, Warren, and Wilson counties.
