Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone -- Salem, NJ; Application and Public Hearing
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the City of Salem Port Authority, a municipal corporation,
requesting authority to establish a general-purpose foreign-trade zone in
Salem, New Jersey, within the Philadelphia Consolidated Customs port of
entry. The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the
Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 USC 81a-81u), and the regulations
of the Board (15 CFR Part 400). It was formally filed on April 30, 1985.
The applicant is authorized to make this proposal under Title 12, Chapter
13 of the New Jersey Statutes Annotated.
The proposed foreign-trade zone would involve the 120-acre Port of Salem
complex in Salem, on the Salem River within 2 miles of the Delaware River.
The site has a number of warehouse and industrial facilities. The City of
Salem Port Authority will operate the zone.
The application contains evidence of the need for zone services in the
Salem area. Several firms have indicated an interest in using zone
procedures for storage and manufacturing of products, such as food products
and apparel. No manufacturing approvals are being sought at this time.
Such requests would be made to the Board on a case-by-case basis.
In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has
been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board. The
committee consists of: Dennis Puccinelli (Chairman), Foreign-Trade Zones
Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, D.C. 20230; Edward A.

Region, 100 Summer Street, Boston, MA 02110; and Lt. Colonel Ralph V.

& Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106.
As part of its investigation, the examiners committee will hold a public
hearing on June 17, 1985, beginning at 9:30 A.M., the Old Courthouse

Interested parties are invited to present their views at the hearing.
