Structural Change Boosts Competitiveness of Canton Vaud

New Credit Suisse study on canton Vaud's economic structure

In the past few years, the canton of Vaud has been experiencing a remarkable economic momentum, as witnessed by strong growth in areas such as demographics, employment, and value creation. This growth is based on a sectoral structure characterized by abundant opportunities and numerous internationally operating businesses, and on the strong focus on high technology and corporate services, and it is accompanied by a changing economic structure. While international company relocations and the creation of new companies dominate the headlines, organic growth in well-established companies remains the primary job engine. According to analyses conducted by Credit Suisse economists, this structural change has strengthened Vaud's position as a business location.
