FTZ Board Update: Just released - 2013 Annual Report to Congress
My staff and I are pleased to share with you the FTZ Board's just-released 2013 Annual Report to Congress (attached and also
available on the FTZ Board's website).
We would like to thank all of the grantees and operators that submitted timely and complete reports. As a direct result of
your efforts, we are able to communicate successfully the positive impact of the FTZ program on the U.S. economy.
Please note that, in response to your comments, we have added to our report a section within each zone’s information titled
“All Activity.” This section adds up both production and warehouse/distribution activity to show the total level of activity
within a zone.
If you have any questions on the Online FTZ Information System (OFIS) or the annual report process, do not hesitate to contact
Liz Whiteman (202-482-0473, Elizabeth.Whiteman@trade.gov) or Marsha Foust (202-482-5832, Marsha.Foust@trade.gov).
