Manijeh Ghaempanah, Moghtadulanam Ravanbakhsh, Seyed Alireza Seyed Salehi


In this article, Aras Free Trade-Industrial Zone’s economic development and its impacts on the region are studied based on AHP model.

This article is done based on qualitative models of content analysis, AHP model, and binary comparisons, to categorize the indices.

Sample population includes managers and employees of the zone. Finally, if we relate the peripheral variants to main variants directly, it is resulted that the most important developments are made based on peripheral variants such as government loans, monetary institute’s funds, and introduction of tourism opportunities in free zones, rather than the least important ones that are peripheral variants such as economic development and office bureaucracy.

Keywords: Free Trade-Industrial Zones, Economic Development, Trade Promotion, Foreign and Local Investor Attraction, Tourism Development, Job Creation.
