Businesses can benefit from aid and support from regional organizations; these constitute welcome portals on a local level and are made up of people from the private sector as well as the municipalities which finance them to a large extent.
These readily available infrastructures offer information, steering, and consultancy in the fields of economic promotion and the creation and development of businesses. They support companies in their cantonal and municipal administrative procedures and put them in touch with organizations that can best meet their specific needs.
