NAFTZ is the voice of the U.S. Foreign-Trade Zones program, created by Congress in 1934 to help U.S.-based companies be more globally competitive; maintain U.S.-based activity and jobs; attract investment to American communities; and boost exports through special duty benefits and customs procedures. FTZs account for a significant portion of total U.S. trade – 5.2 percent ($76 billion) of U.S. goods exports and 10.2 percent ($225.3 billion) of U.S. goods imports in 2016. Over 420,000 American workers are employed at FTZs in all fifty states and Puerto Rico.
