Economic development zones

The canton of Vaud pursues an active policy of economic development. It has earmarked 19 sites for new companies and industries, providing more than 350 hectares of space ready to be used (development clusters).

Run with environmental protection in mind, each site features state-of-the-art communications infrastructure and appropriate equipment. The administrative procedures have been kept to the absolute minimum, which makes it possible for new companies to set up shop extremely quickly, and loans and subsidies are available.
