Zhuhai-Macau Cross-border Industrial Zone (Zhuhai-Macau Cross-border IZ) neighbors Zhuhai Free Trade Zone (Zhuhai FTZ). Zhuhai is one of the five special economic zones in China, all of which enjoy special economic policies and flexible government measures. The zone was set up as a state-level development zone in 2006 upon approval from the State Council, and covers an area of 0.29 sq km in Zhuhai and 0.11 sq km in Macau. The zone benefits from the same favorable policies as the free trade zones.

Zhuhai-Macau Cross-border IZ enjoys convenient transportation systems. The zone is only 10 km from Macau International Airport and Macau Port. It is 30 km from Zhuhai Airport, 45 km from Zhuhai Port and 36 nautical miles from Hong Kong Port. Zhuhai Airport offers 76 domestic and international flights weekly. In 2006, Zhuhai Airport started cooperation with Hong Kong Airport; it currently acts as a supporting cargo-transportation airport for Hong Kong Airport. The Guangzhou-Zhuhai Highway and the Beijing-Zhuhai Highway intersect in the zone.
