Ciudad Morazán is constituted as a Zona de Empleo y Desarrollo Económico (ZEDE), according to the Decree 120-2013 of September 6, 2013. As such, it is an integral part of Honduras. The Honduran Constitution, International Treaties signed by the country, and Honduran criminal law apply.
A ZEDE has certain autonomy in defining private law, but Ciudad Morazán adopted a simplified version of the Honduran Civil Code. Ciudad Morazán has also some autonomy in defining minor laws and regulations, although they always have to be approved by the Comisión para la Adopción de las Mejores Prácticas (CAMP), the entity supervising all the ZEDEs.
Please refer to the section “Laws” to know the legal matters in detail.
The Technical Secretary is the highest authority in Ciudad Morazán. Simplifying, the law gives the position a role similar to that of a mayor and municipal council combined.
At the beginning, the Technical Secretary is nominated by the developer and ratified by the CAMP, later residents and landowners will have the large majority of votes. The position must be held by a Honduran by birth.
The current Technical Secretary of Ciudad Morazán is Carlos Fortín.
The developer of Ciudad Morazán is the US company Overseas Real Estate LLC. The shareholders of the company are Massimo Mazzone and Guillermo Aguilar.
Massimo and Guillermo have been living and working in Honduras for 20 years. They are the founders and directors of Centro American Consulting & Capital (3C), a Honduran holding company.
Among 3C’s assets are Farmacias del Ahorro and Proconsumo in Honduras, and Farma Value in the rest of the region. The group employs 4,000 people in Central America and its revenues are around $800M per year.
