M. Philippe Petitpierre, President
A new challenge...
One of the concerns of the great majority of governments is to promote their economy, facilitate the development of new companies and to create jobs. In general, a government’s economic promotion program has two missions. The first mission is to stimulate the local or regional economy through programs which encourage young entrepreneurs to create their own companies. The second mission is to encourage investment from abroad by creating an attractive environment for foreign companies to set up business operations in the region. The economic development agency for the Canton of Vaud (DEV) has successfully undertaken these two missions for the past 17 years.
DEV’s extensive experience in managing these investment projects over many years will allow us to meet the expectations of the Cantonal government of Vaud. This mandate is a new and exciting challenge for DEV and its team of professionals, who will bring all their experience, competence and dedication to serve the Canton of Vaud.
