Cumilla Economic Zone (CEZ) represents a significant development initiative by the Meghna Group in Bangladesh. Located along the banks of the Meghna River in Cumilla district, this 301-acre expanse is currently in the development phase, gearing up for industrial construction and operations.

Positioned in Meghna upazila within Cumilla district and in proximity to the Dhaka-Chattogram highway, CEZ will encompass a total of 115 industrial plots, eventually expanding to cover 350 acres upon the completion of its first phase.

The strategic plan for CEZ encompasses the construction of factories, administrative buildings, warehouses, logistics areas, water and waste treatment plants, roads, and other essential infrastructure. The objective is to transform CEZ into a self-sufficient industrial hub.

CEZ marks the 12th private economic zone to receive construction approval from the Bangladesh Economic Zones Authority (Beza).

Once fully operational, CEZ is expected to generate employment opportunities for approximately 50,000 individuals and attract investments totaling $2 billion.

To date, 33 factories have been established in the other two economic zones managed by the Meghna Group, with 12 of these companies being entirely foreign-owned.

Interest in Cumilla Economic Zone

Given its proximity to Dhaka, CEZ is anticipated to garner significant interest from both domestic and foreign entrepreneurs. The plan includes allocating a minimum of 50% of the land to foreign investors, positioning this economic zone as a focal point for foreign investment.

The Meghna Group aims to inaugurate the 246.3-acre economic zone by mid-2023, drawing from its prior experience in developing two other zones in Narayanganj: the Meghna Industrial Economic Zone and Meghna Economic Zone.

Numerous local and foreign companies, particularly from the United States, Japan, and Germany, have already expressed strong interest in establishing their facilities within CEZ. This enthusiastic response is expected to culminate in an estimated $2 billion worth of investments, driving industries primarily related to textiles, garment accessories, ready-made garments (RMG), chemicals, steel, and glass.


Investors in CEZ can leverage various incentives, including tax holidays, duty-free imports of raw materials and machinery, exemptions from dividend tax, VAT-free access to electricity, gas, and water, along with additional fiscal benefits within the economic zones. Furthermore, they can capitalize on non-fiscal advantages such as bond facilities, One-Stop Service (OSS), repatriation of disinvestment, unrestricted telephonic transfers, and streamlined customs procedures.

This facility is going to be self-sufficient with its own power plants, underground water, natural gas from TITAS as well as CETP, STP, WTP Plant etc. Modern amenities will include an investors’ club, commercial centers, residential buildings and parks will also be there.
