State of Neuchâtel

Improving framework conditions and facilitating business development projects are effective means of boosting the competitiveness and prosperity of the Neuchâtel region.

State support for economic development thus constitutes an essential driver for a dynamic wealth production system.

The state of Neuchâtel, via its financial department, helps to devise, implement and review the canton’s economic, tourist and regional strategy, and organizes a wide range of initiatives that facilitate its outreach and promote its economic interests.

One of the canton's strategic objectives is to promote the Microcity Innovation Cluster, a network of excellence and an international R&D center specializing in micro/nanotechnologies, microfabrication and industrial processes.

The canton of Neuchâtel benefits from exceptional expertise in this area thanks to the presence of internationally renowned training and teaching institutes, and businesses with high export volumes and worldwide prominence in their areas of excellence.

This region, steeped in three centuries of industrial history, benefits from a truly dynamic innovation value chain, which enables new ideas to be converted into products in record time.

Neuchâtel provides an exceptional living environment, offering lush greenery amid lakes and mountains, close proximity to major urban centers, and a corporate tax system that is among the most competitive in the world. These are just some of the additional factors that explain why many new companies choose to invest or set up here every year.
