FRIBOURG REGION

Straddling both French and German speaking Switzerland, the Canton of Fribourg offers an undeniably strategic location. Fribourg's industry is characterised by its diversification, with the food-processing industry holding a prominent position.

Thanks to excellent structures and incentives offered by the State, its progression, in terms of both employment and added value, is higher than the Swiss average. The regional economy rests on solid pillars: food-processing, machines and metallurgy. Over the past fifty years or so, chemicals, pharmaceutical products, packaging, watchmaking, components for the aeronautics and automobile industries, robotics, electronics, etc. have also developed.

By virtue of its geographic situation, on the country's main motorway and railway axes, and its bilingualism, the Canton of Fribourg is also the privileged location for the Swiss and European headquarters of big international groups. These include Bayer, UCB, Québécor, Tupperware, Nova Chemicals, Atmel, Actuate, Bulova, Scott, Vitro, Saint-Gobain, etc.
