After thorough consideration, the meeting concluded to establish two zones in two districts. It was decided that these new zones should be located in areas where there are no existing industrial estates of the Small Industries Development Board (SIDB) or economic zones developed by the Economic Zones Development Company. This strategic decision aims to maximise benefits for the local population of these areas.
