BRITTANY IS A GREAT PLACE TO DO BUSINESS
Something of a “garden in the sea”, Bretagne’s status as a peninsula makes it an inherently unique location. Its strength stems from its natural environment, developing multi-faceted economic activities that combine earth and sea: farming, fishing and fish farming, processing industries, renewable energies, shipping and sailing, cars, tourism, biotechnology, and more. Bretagne strives to consolidate the relationship between its resources and its ability to transform and add value.
This facet attracts and inspires entrepreneurs and business leaders whether from the region, France or abroad, encouraging them to start businesses in Bretagne with a view to reaching out across the world.
