Status of Organized Industrial Zones

The notion of establishing Organized Industrial Zones dates back to 1960s. Indeed, the industrial sector was identified as the pioneering sector at that time and the devised economic policies concentrated on realizing long-term goals within a stable economy. This climate led to establishment of the first Organized Industrial Zone (Organize Sanayi Bölgesi - OSB) in Bursa Province in 1962 with the World Bank’s loan.
Principally engineered to eradicate unplanned urbanization in the industrial zones and ongoing environmental problems; with rapid development in the global markets, Organized Industrial Zones have become investor-friendly venues for foreign investors and local actors whereby they can benefit from a pre-installed infrastructure and public structures, i.e. water source, power plants, IT network and natural gas.

Organized Industrial Zones are regulated by Law No. 4,563. There exist six types of Organized Industrial Zones:
- Organized Industrial Zones that are established without lending support from the Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology, (the Ministry);
- Private Organized Industrial Zones, established on an immovable of natural or private legal persons;
- Mixed Organized Industrial Zones, comprised of corporations from numerous areas of business;
- Specialized Organized Industrial Zones, comprised of corporations that operate in the same sector or in its sub-sector;
- Reclamation Organized Industrial Zones, established in areas where the industrial facilities are unmethodically located in a specific place for a long time;
- Agriculture Organized Industrial Zones, operated by the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock.
