2018 Regional economy figures

2d Quarter
121 new companies

During the second quarter of 2018, 121 new companies were entered in the region’s commercial register. This figure, though positive, represents a small decline compared with the second quarter of 2017 (Q2 2017: 131, and Q2 2018 without Chexbres : 121). As a reminder, since January 1st, 2018, our analysis also includes the municipality of Chexbres, which has joined Promove. Inasmuch as possible, we will mention corrected figures in order to facilitate the comparison with 2017.

After similar figures in the first quarter, this result is encouraging. It is quite above the quarterly average for 2017 (116 new units). When taking into account all business activities (new registrations/arrivals vs departures/bankruptcies /companies that cease trading/dissolutions), the balance is also quite good, with a total of 53 (51 without Chexbres).
The figure is in the wake of the trend towards improvement noted in 2017, yet with a slower pace.

Promove looks forward to sharing with you a new situation review in early October.
